Zoho Creator: Embed Forms/Reports on a Page

Well known by most but this serves as a quick reminder to myself and anyone else on how to embed a form or a report into a Zoho Creator page.


The below is a template snippet for a Zoho Creator page. We set the parameters of the form/report. Then this shows how to embed using a DIV layer which allows for CSS styling. The last part shows how to embed using an IFRAME tag which isn't great for CSS styling as you can't do cross-dom acoss child iframes; but it does let you use OpenURL(v_Url, "iframe", "iframe_name") which is good if you have multiple iframes on a page and you only want part of the page to display different content dynamically or on click of a button:

	l_FormParams = List();
	v_FormParams = l_FormParams.toString("&");
	l_ReportParams = List();
	v_ReportParams = l_ReportParams.toString("&");	
// embeds using DIV: allows for CSS styling
// embed a form
<div class='my-form' elName='zc-component' formLinkName='Schedule_Week' params='<%=v_FormParams%>'>loading ...</div>
// embed a report
<div class='my-report' elName='zc-component' viewLinkName='Schedules' params='<%=v_ReportParams%>'>loading ...</div>
// embed using IFRAME: allows for content refreshing with openUrl to target iframes on a page
// embed a form
<iframe name='my-form' height='500px' width='100%' frameborder='0' allowTransparency='true' scrolling='auto' src='https://<base_url>/<account_owner_name>/<app_link_name>/form-embed/<form_link_name>'></iframe>
// embed a report
<iframe name='my-report' height='500px' width='100%' frameborder='0' allowTransparency='true' scrolling='auto' src='https://<base_url>/<account_owner_name>/<app_link_name>/report-embed/<report_link_name>'></iframe>
  1.  <%{ 
  2.      l_FormParams = List()
  3.      l_FormParams.add("zc_Header=false")
  4.      l_FormParams.add("zc_Footer=false")
  5.      v_FormParams = l_FormParams.toString("&")
  6.      // 
  7.      l_ReportParams = List()
  8.      l_ReportParams.add("zc_Header=false")
  9.      l_ReportParams.add("zc_Footer=false")
  10.      v_ReportParams = l_ReportParams.toString("&")
  11.  %> 
  12.  // embeds using DIV: allows for CSS styling 
  13.  // embed a form 
  14.  <div class='my-form' elName='zc-component' formLinkName='Schedule_Week' params='<%=v_FormParams%>'>loading ...</div> 
  15.  // embed a report 
  16.  <div class='my-report' elName='zc-component' viewLinkName='Schedules' params='<%=v_ReportParams%>'>loading ...</div> 
  17.  // 
  18.  // embed using IFRAME: allows for content refreshing with openUrl to target iframes on a page 
  19.  // embed a form
