ActiveX and Passing Parameters

I have an ASP application that uses CE9 to view reports on the web.

I would like to use the ActiveX viewer as my viewer.

The ASP page that the user's access allows users to select a myriad of parameter values (e.g. a bunch of drop down boxes).

I'm currently using the statement:

Response.Redirect("viewrpt.cwr?id="+id+"&apstoken.....)

to call the activex viewer. Using this method how do I pass parameters?

I can pass parameters using a vbscript that creates a viewer object and adding the parameter field to the collection.

Is there a similar method to create a viewer object for the ActiveX viewer???

HELP!!

You can use promptex to pass parameters in the url.  

I'm working from memory but I believe the syntax is:  &promptex-1=12&promptex-2=blue...

I was hoping to avoid that method because users can select multiple values for each parameter. I thought that it might get messy if I put them in the url.

Thoughts?

I think they just go in the URL separated by commas:  promptex-2=blue,red,green&...

I haven't actually done this myself but from what I've read in the documentation it sounds like a straightforward process.  I don't have any other ideas w/in the CE framework.

Is it worth trying something like this?

Where I use a WebBroker??

Any good examples of this would be helpful.

I tried a simple promptex solution and I'm getting odd results.

Here's my code:

teststr = "&promptex-SelectionApplication='CARMS'";

Response.Redirect("viewrpt.cwr?id=" + id + "&apstoken=" + Server.UrlEncode(token) + teststr + "&init=actx:connect");

I'm still being prompted for the application value when the report runs? Its like viewrpt.cwr ignores the promptex command. Any ideas?

I also tried substituting promptex-1 inplace of the parameter name. No luck.

Any ideas?

Is the first parameter #1 or #0?  Should it be promptex-0 ?

I got it to work.

I had to enclose the values in " instead of '

Thanks for all your help!

teststr = "&promptex-SelectionApplication=/"CARMS/"";

Response.Redirect("viewrpt.cwr?id=" + id + "&apstoken=" + Server.UrlEncode(token) + teststr + "&init=actx:connect");
