controlling post-insert behavior

I'm working on my first databridge app, so I do apologize if this is covered somewhere in the docs. I need to control the URL that's opened after an insert. I'm feeding some query params to x_insert.php, and they show up properly the first time that page comes up. But after completing an insert, the insert page is reopened without my added params. This same question applies to update. I know I can dig through the generated code and figure this out - just wondering if there is an API setting for it already. Thanks!

Oh - answering my own question, pretty simple to set a session variable if the query string contains my value; set the query string from the session variable if not. Works like a champ!

another option is to use the following code for the forms action:

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



this will ensure that any URL variables passed in are submited with the form, then in the insert / update server behaviors, make sure the "Pass Original Querystring" option is checked.

Thanks, I'll give that a try -- but I cannot find a "Pass Original Query String" checkbox anywhere, where is that?

It's a setting in the Data Assist insert record and Update record server behaviors.

Hmmm - I cannot read that tiny little image, and enlarging it just blurs it.
Here's what I'm doing:
Webassist - Database - Data Assist Pages
This opens up a window with the title "DataAssist: Create Pages"
There are 3 tabs - Page Settings,Manage Pages, and Server Settings.
There is no checkbox on any of these pages labeled anything like "pass original query string".

If you double click the thumbnail photo, it will download the full size image.

The "Pass Original Query String" checkbox is not a part of the Data Assist wizard.

After the pages have been created by the wizard, open the insert page. Go to the server behaviors panel (Window -> Server Behaviors).

In the Server Behaviors list, double click the Insert Record Server behavior.

The "Pass Original Query String" checkbox is a part of the Insert record server behavior, it is also available in the Update Record Server behavior.

ok, I open the insert page, and then I open the server behaviors window. There is no "insert record" listed. I click on the plus sign, select "insert record", and the fields are"submit values from', 'connection','insert table','columns','value','submit as',and 'after inserting go to'. No "pass original query string'.

Send a copy of the insert page please. Did you use Data Bridge to create it? the WebAssist insert record server behvavior will only show in the server behaviors list if you used Data Brridge to create the page and you have Data Bridge installed in Dreamweaver.

The Access point you are using is the Standard DW Insert record behavior. To access the WebAssist insert behavior, click the plus button and select:
WebAssist -> Data Assist -> Insert -> Insert Single record
