InterAKT Dynamic Data

The InterAKT Dynamic Data tool is a replacement for the standard dynamic data dialog. It is used in the MX Kollection 3, to provide a unified way of building mark-ups, or place holders. These are recordset fields, server or session variables, and other types of dynamic data that are replaced at runtime by their corresponding values.

The InterAKT Dynamic Data has an associated blue lightning icon that is displayed next to the interface field that can use it:


When used, it provides a user interface that allows selecting from one of the existing variable sources in page and automatically creates the mark-up code:


To set the dialog box options, follow the next steps:

  1. In the Get values from drop-down menu select the variable source. Available options are:

    · Transaction field
    · Recordset field
    · URL parameter
    · Form variable
    · Cookie
    · Session variable
    · Server variable

  2. Depending on the selection made in the Get values from drop-down menu, different options will be displayed for the other fields, as follows:
    · For Transaction field, a drop-down with all fields involved in the transaction is displayed.
    · For Recordset field, two drop-downs are shown: one listing the available recordsets, and another one listing the recordset fields.
    · For URL parameter, Form variable, Cookie, Session variable and Server variable, the Variable drop-down is shown, listing the available variables in the current category.

  3. In the Mark-up code text-box, the generated placeholder is displayed. This code will also be inserted into the page.

  4. The three buttons on the right of the interface offer you the next functionalities:
    · Click
    OK when you are done configuring the dialog box.
    · Click Cancel to exit without the new settings to be applied.
