Pass Parameters Between Pages
You can use Parameters if you want to send particular values to another Page. For example, if you have a list of machines, and a user selects one, the Application may open a new Page that displays information for that particular machine. In that case, you may want to pass the ID of the machine the user clicked on to the Page that is being opened.
It is recommended that you read the article listed below to improve your understanding of Navigating between Pages.

Adding a Parameter to the Page

A Parameter needs to be added to the Page that is receiving the data. In this example, there are two Pages that exist in the Application: the main Landing Page and the secondary Page. The second page is the Page where the Parameter is made. To add a Parameter to a page, follow the steps below:
  1. 1.
    Click on Applications from the left-hand menu.
  2. 2.
    Click on the edit button of the Application from the list.
3. Click on the page where you want to data to be sent to. 4. Click on Page Data. 5. Click on the plus to add a Parameter.
6. Add the name and type of the new Parameter. 7. Click on Create. 8. Click on Save.
Now that a Parameter has been added, create a textbox or a way to display the value when it is passed to the Page during runtime.
  1. 1.
    Add a textbox to the Page so you will be able to display the value when it is passed from the main page to this page.
2. Click on Block Properties. 3. Click on the ‘A’ button to toggle between static and dynamic text. 4. Select the Parameter from the dropdown. 5. Click on Save.
The data has to sent from the main page to the secondary page. To pass data from the main Landing Page using the Parameter you just created, follow the steps below:
  1. 1.
    Go to the page you will be sending data from.
  2. 2.
    Select the button/link that navigates to the second page.
  3. 3.
    Click on Block Properties.
  4. 4.
    Click on the Edit button under Pass Page Parameters.
  5. 5.
    Configure if the data being passed is dynamic or static.
  6. 6.
    Add/Select a value that you would like to pass to the parameter on the second page.
  7. 7.
    Click on Apply.

Once the Parameters have been configured, launch the application to see how the data will be passed between Pages at runtime.
