Hi all

I need to open an admin form from my main form and pass through a user id which is different to the logged on user.

Is there an easy way to pass data from a folder to an admin form whilst opening the admin form?

I have tried a few methods but they are all giving me headaches and wondered if i am missing something obvious.

Thanks

We do this both to pass data from a folder to an admin form (pop-up help) and also to pass data from an admin form to a folder.

We have a client button on the 'calling' form which writes the data to be transferred into a cookie. Then the 'receiving' form has an onload client-script which reads the cookie in.

Hope this is helpful,

Rick.

Correct Answer.

I have a Search form so that if users can't find a Workflow for a tenant they hit the button and that creates a cookie and then calls the start action of our Contact Workflow which reads in the cookie information to populate the Search Fields ready to get info from our Housing Database.

There really isn't another reliable way as until its raised I don't know what the FolderID will be and I don't want to run into limits on the number of child folders raised either.

Works well - I have the cookie set to time out after 10 seconds.
