Building and Using Queries

API_GenResultsTable: both of which are covered in the language reference section.

Both API_DoQuery and API_GenResultsTable make use of the same query mechanism to return data. They differ mainly in the overall format of the return:

 

API_DoQuery returns XML that you can parse and process as you wish.
 

API_GenResultsTable can be embedded in a web page to automatically show the filtered records in the page as an HTML table when the page is opened in a browser.

This topic covers the query mechanism that both of these calls use.

what is the xml called OR how do I reference the XML via XSL

Hello there!  I have been very fortunate to have run into QuickBase and have much JavaScript, XML and XSL background.  I have been able to generate several apps that use all for components yet one item still eludes me.  Calling the xml and having the xsl associate to it.  I need to have it exist outside of Quickbase.

Currently I have an html page use javascript to generate a search of an XML datasheet where the javascript pairs the XSL w/ it.  How do I call the XML (assume DoQuery) and what is it called so I can reference it.

 

Ideally, could I generate a "API_GenResultsTable" where a field of the table is a link to pulling that single record?
There are many details involded and I tried to get the highpoints in here.  I would be happy to chat on the phone as well.
