URL Parameter Passing

Use XML Encoded Primary Key Passed via URL

Record identifiers are passed from page to page via URLs in an XML-encoded format. For example, if you have a Show Table page with an Edit button, and you set that Edit button to redirect to another page, passing a record identifier on the URL. Iron Speed Designer generates a URL such as: http://localhost/MyApp3/Categories/EditCategoriesRecord.aspx?Categories=%3ckey%3e%3ccv%3e%3cc%3eCategoryID%3c%2fc%3e%3cv%3e2%3c%2fv%3e%3c%2fcv%3e%3c%2fkey%3e The URL-decoded value of the Categories parameter is: CategoryID1. This means that the primary key of the record is defined by the CategoryID column, and for this record the value is 2. For records with composite primary keys, you would see other attributes in the XML representing the names and values of the other primary key columns. You can parse and use the XML-encoded value for your own purposes using a PageLoad function in your page.
