Passing multiple selected items in a list to a popup 

Passing multiple selected items in a list to a popup 

  
Can anyone give me a little help on how you go about doing this please.
I have read a few articles on it but it is still unclear to me what is the "best practice " for paasing the selected items.

Hi Martin,

It depends on the scenario... for instance, can the user select items 'in bulk'? Is it possible that it can break the querystring limit? If this is not an issue, you can generate a comma separated string containing the IDs of the selected elements, for example, and pass it to the popup as a text input parameter. In the popup, you can use String_Split to parse the IDs. Tell us if you need more help on this.

Another solution is storing the data server-side - in your data model or using session variables.

ServiceStudio lets you use RecordLists as screen input parameters, but you should avoid this for performance reasons.

Here's a (sort of) mini-guide:

Sorry for the delay , thanks for your reply.
I am only looking at maybe 5-10 id's being passed to the popup.
I have configured the popup to accept the string parameter but am struggling to create the string parameter to pass.

Hi Martin,
Can you upload a version of your eSpace containing these screens, so I can take a look?
