  • #020 - Passing info from the user to an RPG Program


    In this month's session we demonstrated ways to prompt users for more information before calling an RPG program. We reviewed how to quickly set up a web app in Valence that retrieves data from a user and passes it along to an RPG program. We also showed how you can condition what the user is prompted for using app variables.
