Adding data elements to msbox.js via mboxParameters() function

Avatar

Level 1

I want to load some data elements into my mbox.js so that I can access them from every mbox. 

The satellite calls are
'pageName='+_satellite.getDataElement('PageName')

'formType='+_satellite.getDataElement('FormType')

The interface doesn't provide a syntax for multiple parameters.

Hi Dean,

The way to pass in multiple key/value pairs is to separate them with an & symbol. 

So yours would be 

return 'pageName='+_satellite.getDataElement('PageName') + '&' + 'formType='+_satellite.getDataElement('FormType');

The best way to test this would be to add this code to your mbox.js file then download the newly created file and use an override in a tool like Charles with MapLocal to make sure your parameters are coming in as you expected.

Hope that helps.

Any guess? I'm fine with adding it through the interface or directly into the javascript.
