Return to previous place in results after updating record (ASP version of DataAssist)


I'm working on a fairly old website for a client using DataAssist 1 and I am trying to work out how to return to the correct page of results after updating a record (i.e. the page of results I was on when I selected the record to update). I've seen there are solutions for the PHP version of the pages, is it possible anyone could help with the ASP version too?

My client really needs this feature in order for the admin system I'm building to be effective for them.

The position on the page is maintained with the url parameter offset.

So you would have to pass the offset to the update page and then pass it back to the results page in the redirect.

1) add the offset url parameter to the update page link... so on line 596 of the results page it becomes:

<a href="tblRecommendedRetailers_Update.asp?ID=<%=Server.URLEncode((WADAtblRecommendedRetailers.Fields.Item("ID").Value))%>&offset=<%=Request.QueryString("offset")%>"

2) Then pass that value through the form action so that it will be available to pass back in the redirect by updating the form action on the update page on line 140 similarly:

<form action="tblRecommendedRetailers_Update.asp?ID=<%=Server.URLEncode((WADAtblRecommendedRetailers.Fields.Item("ID").Value))%>&offset=<%=Request.QueryString("offset")%>"

3) now you have the offset and you can pass it back to the results page after update on line 36:

WA_redirectURL = "tblRecommendedRetailers_Results.asp?offset="&Request.QueryString("offset")

Fantastic Ray, that worked perfectly. Brilliant support there, especially considering it was for old versions of the extensions.
