Stored procedures
Calls an external PHP script and returns the result page in the current browser window.
It is recommended to use this function to run PHP scripts (rather than ScriptDisplay).
// Runs the "Script1.php" script found
// at the root of the Web site and returns the result to the Web user
// Login page in php. , sends 3 parameters with the GET method
PHPDisplay("/PHP/Login.php", "Name=BOB&Pass=My+Secret&Lang=3")
// Go back to the "home" page of the site
PHPDisplay(<Script name> [, <"Name1=Param1&Name2=Param2&...NameN=ParamN"> [, <Redirection>]])
<Script name>: Character string
Path and name of the script. The path can be:
  • a full URL "http://..."
  • a path relative to the root of the site "/...". In this case, the script and the Web site must be found on the same server, in one of the site sub-directories.
<"Name1=Param1&Name2=Param2&...NameN=ParamN">: Optional character string
Parameters intended for the script. This string contains for each parameter:
  • the name of the parameter ("Name1" for example)
  • the = sign
  • the value of the parameter ("Param1" for example)
Two parameters are separated by the & sign.
<Redirection>: Boolean
Used to define the HTTP return code of the function to the browser. This return code is mainly used for the referencing by the search engines. This parameter can be:
  • True: permanent redirection (HTTP code 301). The page displayed by the function will be referenced directly.
  • False (default value): temporary redirection (HTTP code 302). Only the source page will be referenced.

Displaying other files

PHPDisplay can also be used on a document that is not a PHP script. In this case, the document is returned (equivalent to FileDisplay, by specifying a URL instead of a physical address).

Encoding parameters

The content of parameters is automatically encoded to get a valid URL:
  • transformation into UTF-8 (according to the options of the page and project).
  • encoding of special characters.

Pre-launched sessions

If your project uses pre-launched sessions, this function must not be used in the project initialization event. This function must be used in the "Initialize project after connecting to the site" event.
