Trip description length

Postby TimOnBTraced » Fri Oct 14, 2016 5:31 pm

I have been using Btraced and written a server side script to receive XML from the BTraced client. I had been using the URL to add other information, but then this means that users (not so technical) have to change the server address and may then mess something up. I then decided to use the Trip Name to allow the user to enter parameters instead. I still have a trip name, but then I add a few parameters in brackets after it (identify which map to display location on, what zoom level to use).

It is currently fine for the application I am using it in, but it would be nice to have a longer Trip Name and it would be nice to be able to able to edit the trip name, so I can change these parameters easily (but I get why most people would not need to do this).

An even better option would be to have another field in the Trip where I can put free text i.e. my variables. This would then be passed as another XML field for use in my server side script.
