Passing Flag Data from a Command Line

Last edited: 13 Apr 2005

The information in this article applies to product: e-Work all versions


  • The Designer User Manual states that when raising a flag from outside of e-Work "You may define any flag data to be passed along with the flag. If more than one piece of flag data is to be passed they are delimited with tabs. If you are passing multiple amounts of flag data, the entire switch must be encapsulated in double quotes."

    Here is an example of eRaiseFlag.exe /FlagName:<name> /FlagFolder:<folder id> /FlagData:<flag data> /ServerName:<server name> that passes 4 pieces of flag data:

    eRaiseFlag.exe /FlagName:MyFlag /FlagFolder:0000000000000000000000000000600 "/FlagData:subject1<tab>product1<tab>form1<tab>details1" /ServerName:MyServer

    Each occurrence of <tab> in the above command would require that a tab be inserted on the command line.


  • By default, a tab character cannot be inserted on a command line. To enable this, a change must be made to the following registry key(s):

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor

    The DWORD 'CompletionChar' can be set to
    0 - disabled
    1 - this will enable you to enter a tab with the 'tab' key

    If HKLM and HKCU are different, HKCU has precedence.

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
