Passing Data To Caspio Datapage/db Via Machforms Server



Hi I need some help. I am trying to add data to a table via a form that is already created with MachForms. They allow passing data to external websites via http post. I read the article on making this work with external forms but I can not make this work for me.


The article referenced using <form method post action to the caspio URL> and adding hidden input type to the AppKey for the datapage. I have tried placing this everywhere and added it on the MAchForms parameters as well. I attached a screen shot of the notifications settings that I can control to pass parameters and to where it lets me enter the URL for my caspio datapage.


Any suggestions?

Thanks for the reply!!


I tried this and it does not work. I have verified that the parameters being passed from the form match the fields in caspio. I just can not make machforms send the data to the caspio table... :(


I did add the html for auto-submitting within the datapage but not sure how that would work when the form is trying to submit data via a URL. I will try to add the code within the actual page where the form is sitting and see if that will help...


Thanks again! I hate being frustrated  :blink:

When you open a Caspio page and receiving parameter via link you should be able to use auto submit code. So let's say user will click on this link: http://domain.com?param1=value1&param2=value2


Caspio can receive [@param1] and [@param2]


Then you can use this code to hide and autosubmit the page:

<script type="text/javascript">
  if(document.getElementById("caspioform")) {
  document.getElementById("caspioform").style.display = 'none';
  setTimeout('document.forms["caspioform"].submit()',1000); } 

This code needs to go to a HTML Block below all elements so it should be the last element
