    Edit data from front end?


    I'm playing around with the Contour product, and I wanted to know if it is possible at all to let a member access and edit his own information from front end? I know that Contour saves a memberKey, but it doesn't seem that there are any API methods to retrieve form data based on memberKey.

    Am I wrong here??

    This is not contour specific, but I did something similar by writing a couple extensions to access data and display it based on specific rules.  You can either do it with xslt extensions (public static methods), or user controls to handle the display.  If your content is always published, then you can use xslt as is to check the rules, but my data wasn't always published (approval, etc).

    Hi Peter

    It is currently not possible to fetch contour records from memberKey, will add that to the feature suggestion list, as it's a good idea.

    If you know the record key however (you could save it on the member) you can retrieve the record and edit it through the api.

    Hi Per,

    Just wanted to say that I would really like that part.

    What I'm looking to archive is to let my members retrieve a list of their active projects from a SQL database (Navision) and let them update and add their time used.

    Okay, that sounds great.

    But how do you find the record key, it doesn't seem to be listed with the entries?

    Ah got it, I'd turned the options column off by mistake. Ta, Lau
