New Stuff (2) x01 and friends

So I mentioned in my last post one of my favorite new features in Application Express 3.1 was being able to pass temporary values to OnDemand process, and I showed an example using x01.

Of course passing one value is useful but not as useful as passing 10-13 of them so lets meet the rest.

  • x01-x10
  • g_widget_mod
  • g_widget_action
  • g_widget_action_mod

As you can see there are 10 generic variables, x01-x10 plus the placeholders for some more specific functionality, sure you can use g_widget_mod , g_widget_action , g_widget_action_mod to pass just random values but they are there for a different use which I will go over on in another post.

You can see an example of these variables and code running here.

    Hi Carl

    Did you know your commenting system on your demo site is broken?

    There is also g_widget_name, g_widget_num_return and g_clob_01. Could you explain them also?

    I skipped g_widget_name and g_clob_01 on purpose but will explain why in a post and example in the near future.

    I did just plain miss g_widget_num_return and added it to the example and will change the code to match in the blog.

    Basically it was a value that we were pass all the time so instead of setting it using x01 - x10 it made sense to always use g_widget_num_return it promotes consistency and is just plain handy.
