This is easier than it might seem, but I use custom properties of the
forms, rather than trying to use _app values. (Also a bit of work, but
it's not that bad once you understand how to do it ...)
If you have, say, a pushbutton on the first form that opens the second:
set procedure to second_form.wfm
oSecond = new second_formform() // classname in the .wfm file
oSecond.MyCustomProperty = some_value // for example,
// form.entryfield11.value -- or whatever you need
// open or readModal:
In the second form, in say, an overridden open method:
if type( this.MyCustomProperty ) # "U" // not undefined
// assign value to a text control for display ...
form.MyText1.text = this.MyCustomProperty
This is just a simple example, untested, but based on things I have done
MANY MANY times.
