Calling a Process Task via URL
If you're a Logi Info developer, the entry point for a Logi application does not have to be a report. Logi Info includes Process tasks and your application can be launched through a process definition rather than a report definition.
The example URL shown above can be used to directly call a Process task, where
- The rdProcess.aspx page denotes that a Logi process definition is to be processed.
- The rdProcess argument value is the name of the Process definition file to use
- The rdTaskID argument value is the name of the Process task to run
This approach can be very useful if you want do logging, or send notifications, or accomplish any of a number of other activities that need to be done before showing the user the first report page. Use of a Response.Link element with a URL is also the only way to have one Process task call another Process task. As always, when working with tasks, ensure that you have a final Response.Report element that's processed at the end of the task or your user will be left seeing nothing but a blank page.
