Hi

I am trying to assign some of the Event rule based target's attributes to some props. To do this, I would like to assign Data elements to the props in the interface, not insert Custom Code for each Event.

The idea would be to define Custom Code Data elements which return the desired attributes of the target element, but I don't know how to access the target from within the Data elements code.

Is this possible?

Many thanks

Marco

Hi Shawn,

That's just the message which I'm searching and sounds so good that you've explained, but unfortunatly (for me), tried to do it with a non good results, let me to explain. 

So, as far as I know, right now Appmesurment haven't any method for deduplicate hits when having enable an automatic tracking links (Adobe Analytics UI on DTM) and also a one rule created for same purpose ( I'm referring solution like http://microsite.omniture.com/t2/help/en_US/sc/implement/link_functions.html), I've decided to use only the second one, meaning, on rule for detect a download links. That's seemed good for me, but the problem is when I need to assign a friendly name to my download link, seems DTM compels me use your UI, and for put into it a parameter that depending of the link ( like last slash parameter or whatever) I need use a Data Element, and is just for do that what I need apply your trick.

I tried to replicate exactly that you explained, but obviously something am doing wrong, attached you see screen of my rule and Data Element (And custom code into rule for filter different kind of dowloads). I'll very grateful if you can help me.
