Trying to use form or dynamic link with parameters in a portlet

I have created a dynamic page and published it as a portlet. The dynamic page is my own customization page for a chart.
Ont he same page as the portlet I have the chart I want to customize. I have tried defining the form action as the page itself with the extra custom parameters in the url and I have tried just building up a url and callong that url (if we have a link on the chart names that is what happens and it works). However, it doesn't work.
It should read (and does when I use a javascript alert): http://ogg:7777/servlet/page?_pageid=134,148&_dad=portal30&_schema=PORTAL30&_mode=3&city=Berlin
but instead using a form it reads:
and using the link building method it reads:
What is happening to the link in either case? Why is it being altered? I've left the form action blank and also tried hard coding the URL but still get the same response.

We are doing something similar with our own customization form and the report it affects on the same page. We will also be doing the same thing with charts in the future. It took a great deal of trial and error, but we finally have a technique that works (even if it isn't ideal).
1. The following is entered in your form in the "On successful submission of a form, execute this PL/SQL block or PL/SQL procedure" (this will retrieve your parameter value from your form and then call the page your form and report (or chart) are on):
hv_myvariable varchar2(2000);
l_store portal30.wwsto_api_session;
-- Note that you have to add the 'A_' in front of your form field name!
p_block_name => 'DEFAULT',
p_attribute_name => 'A_MYVARIABLE'
-- call the url of the page
go ('http://host:node/servlet/page?_pageid=65&_dad=portal30&_schema=PORTAL30&_mode=3&myvariable='| |hv_myvariable);
2. The following is entered in the report's "Additional pl/sql code- Before displaying page" to retrieve the parameters from the url:
l_arg_names, l_arg_values, p_reference_path| |'.myvariable',
3. At this point, the process should work, but it will clear out your form fields when you refresh your page. To prevent this, enter the following for the default value of your form field:
Let me know if this works for you or if you have found other ways to accomplish some of these things. If anyone else can show us a better way to do this or any other useful techniques, we would greatly appreciate the help!

  • Premiere Pro CS5 Dynamic Link with AE CS5.5

    Hi everyone,
    I'm experiencing a problem with dynamic links. I have Premiere Pro CS5, AE CS5 and CS5.5 on my computer. When I do "replace with an After Effects comp" in Premiere Pro, it creates a Dynamic Link with AE CS5 and not CS5.5. Is there a way to tell Premiere to use CS5.5 version of AE and not CS5 ?

    Not exactly Harm...
    It's possible to import AE CS5 composition directly to PrPro CS5.5 via Adobe Dynamic Link, but not vice versa (i.e. it's impossible to import AE CS5.5 composition into PrPro CS5)

  • I'm trying to use the Time Warner modum with this wireles...

    I'm trying to use the Time Warner modum with this wireless router (WRT54G ver 2).  It shows I have to connect it to the modem, then from the modem connect the wireless.  Their modem has just one outlet.  Does anyone have any helpful ideas?
    P.S.  They will rent you a wireless router for $5 a month.

    Thanks!  I tried that way, and now we realize that we must have a CD from them to load-up their IP info etc on the new laptop.  I appreciate your short -- correct answer.  I have gotten some, that are so complex; I can't understand anything they wrote. 

  • Crashing while using dynamic linking with aftereffects

    I've been using premier for a while now but i believe i've fond a huge flaw in the dynamic link system. I own a multi-million dollar corporation that specializes in researching the answer for X divided by Zero and this bug is setting us back thousands everyday.
    The problem is when you import a Premier project into aftereffects and then import the same comp back into premier, the result is 8GB of ram wasted in a few seconds with both applications crashing. As you may have guess from our R&D type this sort of multiplication is unaceptable. Please fix.

  • Dynamic link with an if statement

    Hi there
    I'm trying to combine an if statement to a dynamic link.
    If there is a value in a column, then display the link.
    For now I have come up with this for the if statement.
    If the column is not empty, then echo out a B to let the user know there is a value there.
    <?php if (!empty($row_rs_as_2014['scan'])) { echo "<bold>B</bold>";} ?>
    So my question is this, how do I echo out the url, making the "B" here a dynamic link?
    I have tried splitting up the brackets with php tags to implement the link, but since I'm a newb, that went south..
    Hoping for tips!

    <?php if (!empty($row_rs_as_2014['scan'])) { echo "<b><a href='".$row_rs_as_2014['scan']."' class='button'>B</a></b>";} ?>
    You can put a variable within double quotes but not single quotes, unless the single quotes are within double quotes, but you cannot reference the array element that way, so you either have to convert it to a variable like this. . .
    $scan = $row_rs_as_2014['scan'];
    . . .or use the period as a concatenation operator, as I have done above. So the following would also work:
    $scan = $row_rs_as_2014['scan'];
    if (!empty($scan)) { echo "<b><a href='$scan' class='button'>B</a></b>";}

  • Dynamic link with After Effects workflow questions... (exporting from PPro)

    I have CS5 Master on Win7 x64 pc
    I have a Premiere sequence with an AE linked comp in it...
    If I am using proxies (created at high quality, not low) or pre-renders (in AE comp), would that have any affect on render/export times in Premiere Pro (or Adobe Media Encoder)?
    What is the best workflow for having AE comps in Premiere to maximize export times in PPro?
    Thanks all!

    Umm... sure? To be perfectly honest, I've never tried it!
    As it is, I don't think that's the case; you can set a post-render action in AE to import the rendered file back into your project, but I don't think there's an automatic replacement or addition to the existing comp. You'd have to do that manually. But given that, if you're already rendering out a finished comp, why not just import it into Premiere Pro and forget about the Dynamic Link?
    A proxy in AE is essentially a low-resolution version of a footage item, not a finished comp. So short of doing a bait-and-switch where you build your comp, render it out of AE, import the rendered file back in, and put it as a layer into the finished comp (on top, presumably, since that will basically null the rendering of the other layers below), I don't believe there is a more straightforward workflow.

This has happened through Owen's drills and use of video. It is because of these techniques, that I understand how to hit good shots but just as importantly why I hit a shot poorly. I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to work with Owen and would highly recommend him. ” <strong>Sam Young - Country Club of Maryland - 2009 Men's Club Champion </strong></p>

        <p class="style6 style9">“Owen does two things  particularly well, in my opinion.  First, he is a master of recording  technology, and it really helps me to see what I need correcting, and what the  new move needs to be.  Second, Owen knows what the best next step should be  in your own journey to a better swing.  I have taken one or two lessons  from Owen each year for the last three or four years – one relatively small  step at a time, and then worked on grooving that step.  In that period, my  index has dropped about 8 strokes, and in 2007 I won the Club’s “Most Improved  Player” award.  Kudos to Owen!”</p>

  • Dynamic Link with Encore, Photoshop, and After Effects

    Intention 1: Im using Photoshop CS5 (PS5) & After Effects CS5 (AE5) to create a DVD menu for Encore CS5 (EN5). I used the 'Film & Video' preset in PS5 to make a standard HD 1440 x 1080px image size; which looks the same in AE5. My problem is in PS5 the 'Pixel Aspect Ratio Correction'  size is the size i want the universal size to be. Its a more stretched version which looks better to me, but may not work well with HD monitors (as this DVD will be played on a 17" laptop).
    Question 1: Is there any way to have AE5 recognize the 'pixel aspect ratio correction' from PS5 and make the composition settings that size in AE5?
    Question 2: What are standard sizes for computer monitors that would work welll mostly with the Dynamic Link in AE5 and EN5 working with PS5?

    Yes, it can be very confusing. With CS5, however, as long as you keep it all the same, it doesn't require setting. But you do need to understand it.

  • Encore locks up when using the Adobe Dynamic Link to import Bluray video.

    When I try to import video into Encore by using either the Adobe Dynamic Link or by opening Encore and importing as a timeline,  Encore locks up during the "Prepare Transcode Settings" .  I have Adobe Master Suite CS5 which was a download version.  I've had this software since May 2011.  I have been able to use import video in the past, but there seems to be an issue with Encore now.  Has the program been corrupted? If I need to download Encore to repair it, how do I do this?

    Some other things to read...
    Reset Corrupted Preferences = Press/HOLD Ctrl+Alt+Shift while starting program
    As well as the below, right click the Encore icon and select Run as Administrator, which is NOT the same thing as running the computer with the Administrator account, and which fixes several "odd" problems... To create a two layer DVD (or a BluRay?), you MUST have Encore set to use the Run as Administrator option

  • After Effects not dynamic linking with Media Encoder 2014

    I updated from an older version of Media Encoder to Media Encoder 2014, and now it won't link with AE. I've updated AE also.. and yes, have tried turning my computer on and off again.
    Am I missing something here in a preference setting or is this a known issue?

    Running OSX 10.9.3 on 3.5Ghz i7 iMac
    Transfer comp to AME via Composition drop-down menu , comp settings (for argument sake) are 1920x1080p 25 fps.. although this has never affected the dynamic-link until I updated AME.
    I'm picking because it's a 'new app' rather than an updated one in CC that it's not being recognised/picked up by AME2014.
    Seems like it'll be a preferences setting that I can't seem to find, but open to helpful suggestions.
