Environment Variables
Environment Variables

iHTML 2.20 uses environment variables in place of tags for data that is only normally available from the CGI environment. These are available in all iHTML 2.20 Freeware, Basic, Lite, Professional, and Enterprise editions. These can be used anywhere and will return their appropriate value. Environment variables' values are derived from the following sources:

· The server

· Browser information headers

· Browser request headers

· Persistent variables (the cookie header)

· Contents of the GET or POST data

· iHTML engine parsing data (loops & errors)

· An SQL query

Depending on the exact conditions of the http request (the browser used, the server used, their configuration, and the request details such as method, URL form, etc.), all variables may not always be available. Most variables are configured with either an empty string or a 0 depending on their purpose if there is no data for them.

The following is a description of the supported environment variables.

i_auth_pass-This provides the current user password after any authentication. (where available)

i _auth_type-Authentication type (basic on most systems).

i_auth_user-This environment variable provides the current user name after any authentication.

i_browser-This variable is used to identify the browser being used. (where available)

i_content_length-This environment variable provides the size of the data sent with the previous POST submission.

i _error-This provides the last error condition number.

i_errortext-This environment variable provides the error message returned by the last error.

i_http_from-This provides the client's email address if their browser is set up for mail. (older browsers only)

i_loop-This variable contains the current count of the iLOOP tag.

i_method-This is the current method being used on the Web server (GET or POST or HEAD).

i_path-This environment variable provides the current path of the request (virtual directories resolved).

i_path_info-This provides additional path information , URL between path and query portions. (on IIS only)

i_port-This variable displays the TCP/IP port number of the http conversation (normally 80).

i_SQL_fieldname-This is used with iSQL. fieldname is the table column name being referenced. These are synonyms for iHTML 1.x :xxx variables for the field numbers (both are available).

i_sqlempty-This variable evaluates to TRUE or FALSE depending on the most recent SQL Fetch which has taken place, depending whether the query returned any data. Note: This is not an error, it depends on the query and the dataset.

i_sqlerrortext-When i_error contains 350, this variable holds extended information about the native SQL error which occurred.
