how to transfer data from one window to another

For I Phone development using Titanium

In a Tab, Suppose we have 4 Rows, names as Name, Age, Sex, Submit. When I click in Name Row, popup opens and I enter a name, similarly I do for Age and Sex.

After entering Name , Age and Sex, when I click the submit button, I need to submit this data to the data base.How to transfer this data from one window to another and save this data.

If you can demonstrate this by coding, that would be great.

  • look in the kitchensink examples. Try 'custom_propierties.js' to see how you can send/retrieve variables between windows.

  • I've also been using properties to get/set data between windows. From app.js, you are supposed to be able to make variables and functions available to child windows, though I haven't been able to get that to work.

    Read about passing data at the bottom of the api doc for the window object. https://developer.appcelerator.com/apidoc/mobile/1.3/Titanium.UI.Window-object

    Kind of an odd place for those notes, but very useful information.

  • I have been using app properties.

    For example, for integer, you can use setInt or getInt.

    Check out:

    The strategy is to the value before opening/jumping to a new window. And when the new window open, reads in the value.
