See in TestTopic16. The left bar moves down.

I don't understand the issue. What does the left bar have to do with the local variables?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 23 Nov 2007

Did you click the test topic? The start position of the left bar depends on the status of the twisty when I use a local variable in the link parameter.

I wanted to show the number of infos (all individual topics) added to a topic in the twisted heading. Got the number via a combination of SEARCH and CALC. If I directly use the CALC in the link parameter the topic goes completely gaga (see TestTopic17), so I tried a workaround using local variables which did work somehow in firefox but didn't with the internet explorer. So I guess there's some conflicting CSS issue going on here.

-- TWiki:Main.FranzJosefGigler - 23 Nov 2007

TWiki variables should be escaped to prevent early rendering. Twisty does not yet support that.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 24 Nov 2007

It does now.

Your syntax:

   * Set INFOCOUNT = %CALC{"$GET(infoCount)"}%


link="Infos ($percntCALC{$quot$dollarGET(infoCount)$quot}$percnt)"
<form name="infoList" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/%BASETOPIC%" method="get">
<table width="90%">
<td width="40%">Add <u>new</u> Info </td>
<select name="InfoCategory" size="1" onchange="this.form.submit();">
<option %IF{" '%URLPARAM{InfoCategory}%' = '' " then="selected=\"selected\""}% value="">All</option>
<option %IF{" '%URLPARAM{InfoCategory}%' = 'Common' " then="selected=\"selected\""}%>Common</option>
<option %IF{" '%URLPARAM{InfoCategory}%' = 'Special' " then="selected=\"selected\""}%>Special</option>

Will test this tomorrow on my machine. Thanks in advance!

In the meantime I have updated the test topics.
