I am trying to figure out how to do quite a simple website using DMXZone AppConnect. I've been going round and round in circles for, literally, days! Initially Teodor was quite helpful but I guess he thinks I am an idiot and I'm not getting any response form him any more 😞

Anyway, I feel sure that if somebody with DMXZone experience could spend an hour with me, to show me how to just get started, I will be able to take it from there.

I'll pay for your time!!!

We could do a GoToMeeting screen-share. I'll explain what I need to do and you can show me how to do it.

Anybody up for that?

I am NOT an idiot! I'm a software engineer. I am just not very familiar with Dreamweaver and have done only pretty basic web development thus far.

Hello,

Just wanted to post here, so that you understand Teodor is not ignoring anybody.

DMXzone office is based in Europe, it is open from 8:00 to 18:00 CET Monday to Friday. We are not working during the weekends, so requests made after 18:00 CET Friday to 8:00 CET Monday are being answered after 8:00 CET Monday...

I understand that everybody who contacts us is always 3 weeks behind the schedule and his/her projects are the most important, but we just don't work or offer support during the weekends.

Checking the DMXZone forum, which is not an easy task, I see your most recent post as per

I have the ServerConnect and State Management extensions.

I have a simple login page - username and password.

I need to query the Contacts database and return the Contacts.recordnumber and Contacts.vendorid into cookies so that I can then query other tables, such as Products.

There is no need to use cookies when you use the Security Provider (SP). Have a look at Creating a Complete Login System with DMXzone Security provider - YouTube. Approximately 5 mins into the video, you will see the addition of the Security Provider.

Once the security provider has been included in the server side algorythm, it will keep track of the logged in user and it will be the vehicle that helps you extract any info about the logged-in user from the database.

Edit: I notice that you are not logged into the DMXZone forum using your name, it shows as user. This may be a reason for Teodor to place your query on a low priority. It is much nicer to be able to address you as Pat.

Thanks for your reply!

I looked at the SecurityProvider and thought that it was overkill for this particular project. If I have to get it, I will, but if I can get by without it, that would be preferable.

I just need to query the Contacts table, get the UserID, VendorID, and UserAccessLevel and store them into session variables or cookies, then display a list of that vendor's products and allow the user to add/edit the product records.

Can't I accomplish that with the two extensions I've purchased (ServerConnect and StateManager)?

Have you worked with these products yourself?

Thanks!

Short answer: No

Long answer: You do not need extensions to achieve your goal, you can hand-code everything as this tutorial will show you.

To use the DMXZone extensions, you will need to purchase the DMXZone Database Connector.​ Once you have that installed, you will be able to query the database using the session variables created by the StateManager.

Hi,

I have purchased the Database Connector.

I feel sure I should be able to accomplish what I need with that plus AppConnect plus State Manager but I just have not been able to get it to work.

Could you spend an hour with me to go through the basics and get me started? As I said .... I'll gladly pay you for your time!

thanks

Pat

What is your general location?

Edit:

Are these the extensions that you have installed? Are there more?

Have you got the login part working?

Please post the code of the page here.

Please post the steps taken in Server Connect.

The above should keep me busy in an already busy schedule.
