Use API parameters in template using handlebars

  • Hi,

    I've been using JSReport for a little while now, and have stumbled upon an issue that I've not yet found an answer to.
    So, I'm using a logic file to fetch the necessary data, including parameters (in this case startDate and endDate). The parameters each has their own variable that is set from the software I use when executing the report.

    What I want is to be able to in the template file, using HTML/CSS/JS, be able to in a h1-tag showcase the start- and endDate.

    Is there a way to do this? As mentioned in the start, JSReport is kinda new to me and not really familiar with handlebars, etc.

    Thank you, all the best.

  • For reference, here's an image.

    I want to be able to pass the values of startDate and endDate to my template folder. The values are set from my backend software.

    hi! this depends on the shape of what you are getting as a result of your http request, but you can update your script to instead set the data for the template in a custom way so you don't mix the data from the request with the data of your dates.

    .then((result) => { = { 

    then your template you need to access the data from the endpoint using graphqlData. as prefix

    <h1>{{startDate}} - {{endDate}}</h1>
    <p>Some value: {{graphqlData.yourPropertyHere}}</p>
