    i was looking for some documentation on the “report/form receives external call” and couldn’t find anything. i’ll apologize ahead of time if i’m just not looking in the right places.

    i’m hoping, though, this means there’s a way to push data to the forms based on an outside action, eg: a javascript function acting on the form/report.

    either way, thanks ahead of time.



    use the ‘search’ tab in the user guide and search for ‘external call’

    you will see this


    but also in relation to ‘outside action’ this as well


    with more detail on this here:




    ok.. i think i see what i’m looking for: pf_call. could you explain that js function a little more. i’m assuming the ‘nzgz’ isn’t a constant but is.. the name of the form?

    is the javascript utils.js documented anywhere?




    nzgz you see in the screen shot would relate to your form when it is published. look at a form you have deployed and under the LINK button to see how it relates to the other methods of linking – in the ’embed’ and ‘preload’ links seeing the similar reference to the form.

    the ‘params’ of course will relate to the parameter index you have defined within the Get External Call Parameter for the fields you wish to populate

    Util.js is part of the actual application and not relevant in the External Call. The only time you’d refer to this file is in the OnPremise version where you would be ‘customising’ in terms of the standard Perfectforms logo’s
