Set global variable to be a int which is populated from a parameter

Hello,

 

I want to pass in a parameter from my URL which would be a database Id number. However, when I set the variable using OnStart, it defaults to being text.

 

I set the variable by doing:

Set(startScreen, Param("ScreenId"));

 

But then I get errors about a mismatch in datatype. It sets the variable by default to be text, but I need it to be an int.

 

Many thanks!

Dayna

Hi DaynaLitherland,

 

You can try

Set(startScreen, Value(Param("ScreenId")))

Haven't tested this, but in theory it should work 🙂

 

Hope this helps,
