Logon.html (v5.0.x) and Uniface Command line parameters


The Uniface Anywhere example webpages that can be found after installation of the HOST at <installdir>\web and reachable by http://hostname/uanywhere/ has changed with the introduction of version 5.0.0 and is now using JavaScripting.

The supplied example webpages are browser aware and will start (when possible) the correct UA-Client for the used client environment.

All relevant application startup parameters for the client are now located in one html file called “logon.html”.
These parameters are in the form of:

// controlArgs.set([variable]);


When making use of these arguments be aware of the following:

  • The relevant line needs to be uncommented by removing the // in front of the argument that is required.
  • Special characters (like <space>, <_>, <?> etc.) used in values, needs to be escaped for interpretation by the browser


To automatically escape characters, Javascript has the function: encodeURIComponent.

In next example we want to pass the Uniface arguments:

Uniface command line arguments
“/adm=c:\u9702\uniface\adm /dir=c:\ua-9702 /asn=c:\UA-9702\_usys.asn”

to the application defined in:

logon.html
“controlArgs.set([ “app”, “IDF 9702” ]);”

in the logon.html page.



Example on how to use encodeURIComponent in the Logon.html page:

logon.html
controlArgs.set([ “args”,encodeURIComponent(“/adm=c:\\u9702\\uniface\\adm /dir=c:\\ua-9702 /asn=c:\\UA-9702\\_usys.asn”)]);

Be aware that you will still have to escape backslashes with a backslash, as encodeURIComponent does not encode the backslash.
