Storing an Email Value in the Session Variable

Storing an Email Value in the Session Variable

Jason:

When doing an insert with DA's Insert Record Wizard, in the Session Variable field I select Email as the Key Column, which generates the Session Variable "profiles_Email". But the value the Wizard stores in that Session variable is not the user's Email, it's the record ID.

I have named the Email column in my DB as "Unique", hoping it would help, but it doesn't. Is it really possible to store any value in the Session Variable other than the ID value?

Thank you for your attention

the session variable will only store the records ID value.

you can use the Set Session Value behavior though to capture the email into a session variable.

On the server behaviors panel, click the plus button and select eCart -> General -> Set Session Value.

for the trigger, click the lightning bolt and select the email form element, same for the value. set the name to something like "email"

I only have Data Assist, Universal Email, and CSS Form Builder. Would any of those have that eCart feature?

no you would need to hand code it then.

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
  
$_SESSION["email"] = "".((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"")  ."";
}
?>




this example assumes the name of the email form element is "email"
