User Input (to function parameters)


Does anyone know of a way to include variables from out side the JS text to be run against a website. The above code has helped me get the information I want from a webpage but I would like to be able to set some parameters for my function dynamically from user input. Is this possible?

How are you interacting with the WebView?

Here’s an example of getting user input.

let nameInput = new Alert();
nameInput.title = "Input Example";
nameInput.message = "Please enter your details";
await nameInput.present();
console.log("Hello " + nameInput.textFieldValue(0) + " " + nameInput.textFieldValue(1));


I should have been more specific. I have have some JS I have wrapped in let v1 = function editDa(p1, p2, p3){.... in order to run the evaluateJavaScript method using v1 as a parameter on a local html file loaded into a webview. The JS evaluates properly but I want a way to pass user input into the function that is wrapped in ``. Can I use string interpolation? I am at a loss of how to pass my data into a function that is now considered a string by JS.


You can concatenate your string with the needed values inbetween or use ${expression} inside the template literal ``. But keep in mind that objects would need to be passed through JSON.stringify() beforehand.


Thank you this helped me a lot. I ended up taking input from a shortcut because the interface looked better but passing that data into JSON.stringify() and then putting the variables in my function string as function myfunction(${p1} ) worked great. Thank you.
