BPT: want to use a parameter obj from prev step
I did a search but couln't find anything.
I can usually make BPT do what I want and only resort to scripted components when I have to but this has me stumped.
I can use the "ChildItem" operation on a WebTable to create a Local Output parameter containing the object I want - a WebCheckBox. I want to check that box in the next step (or at least within the same component) but cannot see how to pull in that local parameter to use the "Set" operation on it. It's easy to write a function that can be selected in the Operation dropdown that will take the parameter and apply the "Set" to it but I really thought there should be a way to do it with the basic tools provided in BPT without resorting to that.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Re: BPT: want to use a parameter obj from prev step
Try this, First have the LocalParameter created and output some dummy value to it using function or something
Then pass the name of the parameter to your function
Function MyFunc(obj, paramName)
Set LocalParameter(paramName) = myNewObject
See if this kind of approach does work and help
