Subject AW: AW: Accessing widget-content for usage in link url

Well I got everything working in the meanwhile. 

The thing I really had to change was to use the JXTemplateGenerator and the

Now everything works fine. 


It would be nice if the Cocoon-Docs would be updated to direct one to use
jx-macros.xml instead of the old macro-file. Sort of delayed my progress a
little ;)


Thank you anyway,

Thanks for your help.


Unfortunately this didn't work. The widget is part of a repeater called
"news" so the real path would be some kind of (I
know that this will probably not work. I just used to illustrate the path)


Please help me.

Subject: Accessing widget-content for usage in link url



I am working on a small CForm application and have run into a problem.

I have two forms. The first shows a list of news-headlines. Each news-entry
has an id, which is available as a standard cforms widget. I don't want to
output the id but want to use it to open a popup showing the complete news
article. For this I have to somehow output the information directly. How can
I access a widgets value directly inside my template?


Thanks in advance,
