Hi,
I have 2 brief questions:

1.) I have a few long running transactions which I implemented before the batch feature has been made available. I'm considering to migrate these to batch tasks.
Q: How exactly can I pass an online selection to the batch task (which according to the documentation should be possible: http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/dialog-types.html#backg round)? Concrete example: I want to pass a file name (from a filepicker) to the batch. I think I can start the batch task from the filepicker with scriptNext() but I have no clue on how to obtain the selection (the filename from the filepicker) in my batch task.

2. According to http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/radicore-security.html it should be possible to configure the session timeout value. Where actually can this be configured?

Thanks and regards

The session timeout is a PHP option - see http://www.php.net/manual/en/session.configuration.php#ini.s ession.gc-maxlifetime

Parameters for batch jobs are passed in the WHERE string, similar to online screens.

Coming back to my first question. The batch task that is generated looks as follows:

<?php
//********************************************************** *******************
// run a script in the background
//********************************************************** *******************

$stdout = '...';
$csvout = '...';
$pdfout = '...';

// ini_set('include_path', '.');
require 'std.batch.inc';

batchInit(__FILE__);

// custom code starts here

// custom code ends here

batchEnd();

?>

There are no parameters, respectively where clauses here ...

Thanks and regards

After the batchinit() function has executed you will see global variables called $where and $search.
