How to transfer variables from one page to another page?


#1

Hi,

In my application I want to tranfer a variable (store_id) from one page
to next without putting it into session. How should I do this?
Is there any way to transfer variable from one to other page using
methods other than sesion?

Thanx

Prash

You do realize that this is precisely why the concept of Session
Management exists, in web applications, don’t you? Why would you not
want to make use of that?

As for other ways, the easiest (assuming you only have one or two
simple values) is to pass the variables as parameters to the URL
being called. That way, they will be part of the params[] object in
the next action.

You can use flash.

flash[:store_id] = store_id

then you retrieve in the second action : @id = flash[:store_id]

Except flash is just stored in the session :wink: Serioulsy, you need to
give us more info as to why you don’t want to use the session?
Sessions whole reason to exist is to hold state between stateless
http transactions.
