How to replace substitution parameters in a custom data reference?

Hello all,

 

 

I am writing a custom data reference to read from and write to a SQL database.

One of the things I want to support is the use of substitution parameters.

What I cannot find online and in the help file is how to have those parameters resolved.

In my case they all end up in the SQL statement, of course.

As an example: SELECT myVALUE FROM myTABLE WHERE ID=%Element%

This one is easy to do "manually": Attribute.Element.Name, but I was hoping that OSI opened up their substitution parser in the AFSDK.

 

Is this possible? Should it happen without any coding? I must admit I have not implemented the config string dialog yet.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

Jan
