View Full Version : Execute generated URL

03-06-2007, 06:20 PM
I'm trying to do something that I think should be fairly simple but so far have not found a way to get it work. What I basically would like to do is prompt the user for an ID and, based on that ID, generate a URL to another page with links to other actions. Kind of a poor man's portal.

I've attached a screenshot generated from the SecureFilterComponent and what I want is the user to enter their ID and when they click Update..., it would build a URL (I use the JavaScript Process Action) and execute that URL from the xaction. Granted this is probably not the best way to do this but I'll make it better later.

I have also attached the xaction I currently have.

Thanks for any assistance,

You may be better off writing a custom JSP for this type of logic. Take a look at the Samples -> Dashboards -> JSP Dashboard example to see how to include a JSP as a solution, and also how to have the JSP call an xaction.
