      Has anyone been able to gather user input on a Portal Page Designer from a Text box or other device but not one of the three types of popup boxes?  I need the user to enter in just one value for my entire custom Portal Page to work but I fear that popups will create too many Popup Blockers amoung my user community.  I have tried using a formlet dropped onto my page but I can not pass the user input from the formlet back to my main page.  Could not get Data Mapping to work either.....I also do not know if users without the form formlet access will be able to use this type of page??  Does anyone have any suggestions    I'm stuck

    function portalpage_OnInit()
    {
    	var vName = prompt("Please enter your first name", "")
    	alert (vName)
    }

    You can put the prompt anywhere you want. I just put it here to prompt when they first go into the page. From there you can do whatever you want with the variable.

    Thank you for the reply.  I was hoping to not have to use a popup type box....because of Blockers and such.

    I thought that was a requirement to run Lawson Portal anyway was to have pop-up blocker's turned off. I'm not sure even if you did have them turned on if this would be blocked. Turn on blocking and give it a try to see what happens. Good luck.
