This question about Topic Markup Language and applications: Answered

Hi everybody,

is there a simple way to access the form data of the current topic I'm editing.

For example I have attached a data form to a topic called "SoftwareTopic0004". And I have got a form field called "SoftwareName" in my data form.

Now I want to somehow access this field to display the value somwhere in a table when I view the topic.

I'v tried this:

%SEARCH{
"SoftwareTopic*"  
topic=%TOPIC% 
nonoise="on" 
noheader="on" 
nosearch="on" 
nototal="off" 
format="$formfield(SoftwareName)" 
}%

but it wasn't successful.

Anyone has a good idea?

Thanks a lot for your Help!!!!

See VarFORMFIELD. Note that if you are going to be using this in more than one topic, a View Template is probably the way to go. The AutoViewTemplatePlugin can associate a template with the form automatically.

Example: %FORMFIELD{"Version"}%: expands as: Version in GIT
