Maybe a little off-topic, but I've just been using your companies house address validator, and as someone new to OutSystems I'm finding it hard to access the retrieved UK Company Detail from inside your cool Business Address Validation widget.


I'm using your module as a dependency and I can't see any public properties. As an OutSystems noob I may well be following the wrong design pattern - is there a simple way to hook in to the selected company, or is that not how it's supposed to be used? Is the widget perhaps just a demo for the callouts? But then why mark it Public?

Francis, just use the API calls (which you should have available as actions) to retrieve the same information and then you can decide what to do with it, just display it on a screen or save it in a DB. 


In order to make the calls you will also need your own Companies House API key:

Andre,

Thanks for your note we resolved the issue over on this thread also

Thanks Andre and David - I agree that the problem has been quite effectively resolved (by adding an OnChange event)
