Manual redirect

Greetings.

What is the idiomatic RT/Mason way to do redirects?

I have a small component I’ve added to the ShowSummary page, and I want
to post a form back to that component, and then redirect to the
ShowSummary page.

(This is to avoid having to put the form on a separate page, which would
solve the problem, I realise, but that’s not what the boss wants.)

Thanks,

Jens

Thanks, Todd.

But from grepping I notice that RT does not seem to use the $m
object directly. Is there some sort of abstraction layer here?

If so, how does this affect my ability to get the $m object,
and call a redirect using it?

It’s always available from a Mason component.

The only time I ever use Mason is when I’m hacking on RT, so
I’m still finding my way around…

We have a /Elements/Redirect object that we use for all redirection
(e.g. /Tickets/Display.html whenever a value is changed), so a browser
reload "does the right thing"™. The object includes two layers of
automatic redirection HTTP (very fast), and Javascript (pretty fast),
and if that fails there is a link. It is simple to use:

/Elements/Redirect
$page: the page you want to send the client to
@actions: array of Result strings that you want diplayed on the target page.

For exmple from our /Tickets/Display.html:

if(@Actions){
$m->comp(’/Elements/Redirect’,
page => $RT::WebPath . ‘/Ticket/Display.html?id=’ .
$TicketObj->Id,
actions => @Actions);
return 1;
}

/Elements/Redirect

Please go to this location: <%$page%>
<%init> $session{'actions'} = \@actions; $page = $RT::WebBaseURL . $page; $r->headers_out->{'Location'} = $page; <%ARGS> $page => '/index.html' @actions => undef

  1. if you add comp to the “local/html” dir then you couldn’t call comp
    from “share/html” at least I don’t know way.
  2. RT uses $m directly, but don’t use redirect.
  3. do you really need real redirect?
  4. Masone $m object has two useful calls $m->comp(…) and
    $m->scomp(…) (like sprintf).
    <&…&> markup is equivalent of the first one method. So if you want
    to show output of the component in another component then you just put
    one of this calls into second component.
