UE email subject as variable

UE email subject as variable

I have created a form using CSS Formbuilder, then created an email but not all data is being sent.

I am trying to bind a recordset variable to the subject but when the form sends there is no subject data, am i missing something?
The results page recordset that is sending the email is filtered by unique ID but i can't get the recordset data to bind to the email subject line?

how is the recordset created, it should work just binding the recordset column in the email, if the subject is empty, it suggests the recordset is not returning a result, I need details on how the recordset is configured to determine why it is not returning a result.

The recordset is created by sending the url param eg: uniqueID=1

The resulting page loads the correct record but when i bind the column to the Subject in UE nothing gets sent, the subject is empty?

Recordset SQL is

Select * from Recordset WHERE UniqueID= colname

colname = $_GET['uniqueID']

does the action of the form send the URL parameter as well?

when the form submits, it reloads the page, including the recordset, if the URL parameter is not a part of the action, the recordset will be empty at the time the UE code is running to send the email.


use the following code for the forms action to force it to retain any querystring variables:

php:
 action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]); ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]):""?>"

It is not a form sending the url param it is a link, eg:

link = myResultsPage.php?UniqueID=1


Do you mean the form that sends the final email?

yes, i mean the form that sends the email, it must also send the URL variable when the form submits

The column i want to bind to the Subject line is not the URL variable that is originally received by the link page, ie the UniqueID is sent to the detail page but i want to bind another column from the recordet
