Passing Value Between Pages to Filter a View Object
By Shay Shmeltzer on Nov 24, 2009
A frequent question we get from beginners is how to I choose a value on one page and pass it to another page to show a specific record or set of records.
In previous blog posts I showed how easy it is to do this when you are using the same view object on both pages - using the setCurrentRowWithKey operation, and In another entry I showed how to use an execute with params before a page loads to filter the data in that page.
But on OTN someone asked how do you do this when you use two different views on the two pages. This would be a combination of both techniques - but using a parameter passing instead of setCurrentRow operation.
So here is a little video showing the basic technique.
We are going to use a pageFlowScope variable to pass the value from one page to the filtering method (executeWithParam) and then to the second page.
