Passing Parameters to Pages

I have 2 different html files that I navigate between.  Is there a way in a webworks application, like in a web application to pass values between them like in the querystring?  I tried the querystring and it didn't work when using the local:/// address.

Re: Passing Parameters to Pages

Are you experiencing this issue on the PlayBook?  if so, this is a known issue with the local:/// protocol on the existing simulators.  It has since been corrected and will be released in the next simulator build.

 

If it is on a BlackBerry Smartphone, this should be working.  If it isn't, can you post the how you are navigating between pages.. i.e. via an anchor tag or window.location etc.

Re: Passing Parameters to Pages

Yes this is for the Playbook simulator.  The local: tag works to go from one page to another, but I was trying to use the querystring to pass a value and it breaks the link.  Wondering how you pass values from one page to the next then?  Or is that the way to do it, but it is just broken on the Playbook?
