HowTo Transfer multiple filter selection between WebTemplates

Hello all,

How can I transfer a multiple filter selection in the URL between two webtempaltes??:

Scenario:

webtemplate 1 is an entry webtemplate where you can select materials to display with a standard navigation block. When you select ONE material the URL says:

…

&DATA_PROVIDER=DATAPROVIDER_1&FILTER_COLLAPS=&FILTER_COLLAPSE=&FILTER_IOBJNM=0MATERIAL&FILTER_VALUE=0000000001&FILTER_NODE_IOBJNM=0MATERIAL

…

This is easy to put in the URL of a new webtemplate (2) which is displayed when clicking on a certain button.

But when you select TWO or more materials the URL says:

…

&BOOKED_VALUES=Q&CMD=PROCESS_HELP_WINDOW&DATA_PROVIDER=DATAPROVIDER_1&FILTER_COLLAPS=&FILTER_IOBJNM=0MATERIAL&HELP_SERVICE=DP_VIEW_FILTER&IOBJNM=0MATERIAL&CMD=PROCESS_HELP_WINDOW&SUBCMD=FILTER_SUBMIT&INDEX=0

…

Does anybody know how to use that information meaningfully? What to put in the URL of webtemplate 2 to copy the filter?

I guess I could also read out the filter value of a standard filter object and make a loop with FILTER_VALUE_1=0000000001&FILTER_VALUE_2=0000000002...

but this does not seem very elegant.

Thanks in advance for your help,

best regards,

Michael

    Michael,

    We have used the Web Tabs (How to Guides code) and as you pick a characteristic value and move between the tabs the vales are kept and feed into the second tab (assuming the characteristics are common in the data providers).

    Regards
