Hello All I'm trying to integrate a QR code generator in my Caspio data page. It works easily enough when using a simple URL, but I don't know how to include Query strings. As an example, if I use https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=http://website.com then it works fine. If I try and include query strings at the end though, for example- https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=http://email@example.com it doesn't work. I've tried encoding the URL, but that doesn't work either. Any help would be very gratefully received. Thanks Duncan
I want to call a datapage URL with query parameters then have an HTML Block Link "pass through" those parameters via the URL call to my second datapage. 1) Call Tabular Rpt datapage to list (all) items from a table (caspio URL with parameters: WID=User ID, LBE=Email) from CMS (Wix) - these are current user id fields and NOT part of a table yet - URL (from CMS): https://caspioacct.caspio.com/dp/appid1?WID=" + userId + '&LBE=' + userEmail (works fine) 2) Have that Rpt datapage (in Details Page Fields) present an HTML Block with a Link to call a Submission Form datapage to create an entry in a different table (caspio URL with parameters: WID=User ID, LBE=Email, UniqueID=caspio primary key from first table, ItemName=caspio ItemName from first table) - https://caspioacct.caspio.com/dp/appid2?WID=HelpMe&LBE=HelpMeAgain!&UniqueID=[@field:TableID]&ItemName=[@field:ItemName] - the last two fields are part of the main table and work fine - no problem (works fine) - BUT the first two fields are managed externally in the CMS and are not part of Caspio environment (except via URL parameters from the initial call) Note: I had this junk working with Authentication fields before having the bright idea to move user management to the CMS. When I try to add fields to the Link, my only options are Data Source Fields (table) or System Parameters but these are neither at the time of the call. I tried adding two "temp" fields to the original table and loading the External parameters but they're empty when I make the call. I might also be able to create a "temp" table for the fields I need but that seems unnecessary. Is there anything like a "global" variable I can store something in before I put it in the table? OF course, it needs to be accessible by the second datapage. Any other workaround approaches from those more experienced? Please help (and pardon the ramblings of a noob).
Hi I've been using external query strings to update my database but these inevitably display the field contents on the browser being used. For confidential information, this renders the use of query strings redundant. Is there any way that the parameters in the query string can be hidden from view. This would be necessary in an application that uses a QR code or NFC tag to update a record in a secure database. If the password information gets displayed then it can't be used. Any thoughts?
