Some screens receive information that defines the data shown on that screen. For instance, a screen showing the profile of a user requires information about which user to display. In OutSystems, we use Input Parameters to pass information between screens.
To pass information to a screen do the following:
- Right-click the screen on the Elements Tree and choose 'Add Input Parameter'.
- Define the name and data type of the new input parameter.
- Use the input parameter to define or filter the information shown on the screen.
- When navigating to this screen set the value of the input parameter.
