Passing variables with page redirect
I have a cfform. After it is filled out and submitted, the action page
generates a random reference_no and puts the data into a database. I then do a
cflocation url and pass the reference_no to another page. This page takes the
reference_no and does a cfquery again to get all the information just entered
user the form was submitted with the reference_no and to print the form. I was
advised to do it this way so that the form cannot be resubmitted again.
Everything works fine the way I have it.
Now here is what I would like to do. After the form is displayed with the
popup, I would like to pause 3-5 seconds and then redirect that page to another
tag because I want them to print the form in pdf format. The problem I am
having is when I do another cflocation url at the end of the display page and
pass the referendce_no, to go to the pdf page, it works but it never stops at
meta tag refresh rediredct set at 3 seconds and pass the reference_no. The
the reference_no is never passed and the pdf form comes up but without anything
to display. I guess you cannot pass variables in a meta tag since that is not
cfdocuement pdf format ?
