tmp

Sets a scratchpad variable to the value specified in the tag body.  The variable will not be saved into the user's session and will therefore only be valid for the remainder of the current page.  This tag will interpolate its body text by default.

Summary

  • [tmp name] String to save [/tmp]

Parameter Description Default
name The name of the scratchpad variable you would like to set. None
interpolate Parse Interchange tags, included in the body text, before this container tag executes. Yes

Examples

Tag expansion example

[tmp foo] Hello world [/tmp]

The above sets up for the following example of a subsequent retrieval:

[scratch foo]
Hello World

Perl example

$Tag->tmp({
    name => $name,
    body => $value,
});

or similarly with positional parameters:

$Tag->tmp($name, $value);

Description

Sets a scratchpad variable to the value specified in the tag body.  This is just as the [seti] tag would do it, except that the name is added to the list of scratchpad entries that are to be deleted immediately after the current page has been processed and served.  This saves session write time in many cases.

This tag interpolates automatically.  Interpolation can be turned off by either passing the interpolate=0 parameter, or by simply using the [tmpn] tag instead.

Note

Note

The [tmp] tag is not appropriate for setting scratchpad-based order/search profiles or mv_click / mv_check callback actions.  If you want to define these but not store them in the users' session then use a profile instead.  See the [OrderProfile] and [SearchProfile] local configuration directives.


The "set scratchpad variable" tags are all very similar.  The following table will help you select the one that's correct for your requirements:

Tag name Temporary Interpolates
set No No
seti No Yes
tmpn Yes No
tmp Yes Yes

Parameters

name

The name of the scratchpad variable whose value you want to set.
