I don't think this will work very well. Often, mainscreen() itself took input from some other form. Now I'll need to pile on yet more logic inside mainscreen() to know which runmode it's being called by.

Well, it depends on your mainscreen(). My mainscreen() is always the very first page, which by definition doesn't take any input.

In my years of cgiapp development, I actually haven't needed it any other way. That's probably b/c I don't develop the more complex structures, but I've done countless e-commerce and complicated database applications in this "simple" manner.

Now that I think about it, there are a few other options. Remember in each runmode you got access to the $self (cgiapp class), which you can call its get_current_runmode() to see what runmode it's being called by. You also have access to the CGI object within. You can also stuff/access something inside the cgiapp object with its own param() method. Lastly, you can also pass along arguments to the various runmodes.

You have to put that logic somewhere... ;)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
