[mapguide-users] help, pass variables

In the layer definition, under the URL activated for feature section, you
should be able to create your full URL as long as your feature data has the
dynamic field(s) you are wanting to pass.  In the Text Expression dialog in
Builder mode, select Constant and type in your URL.  An example is:


Then the next item in the expression will be from a Property where you
select the field, lets call it FEATKEY.  Viewed in the Advanced view, it
would look like: 

concat('http://yoursite/mapguide/yourreport.asp?key=', FEATKEY)

If you need to concatenate from multiple fields, just keep adding to the
expression with Constants and Properties.

I hope this helps.

 Hi, I have a SDF that has a key and a URL path. When I select a parcel I
get a URL and I want to pass the variable key to my index path, but, of
course, I don't know how.
What I want to do is use that variable key to connect to my data base, is it
possible to do?
Thanks a lot,
