Is there a parameter that can be passed through URL so that Input control screen doesn't load ?

0

The short Version:
Im looking for a varuble I can pass along with a hyperling so that the input control screen isn't loaded (something like this ...&loadInputControl=false)

The long version:

I have a drill down report (lets say reportONE) with input controles that need to be populated

When report is run the 1st time the input control screen appears and after the user enters and runs the report, the user can then drill down to the drill down report (let say reportTWO)

Once in the drill down report (reportTWO) the user can click a back link wich takes the user back to the 1st report (reportONE)

What is currently happeneing is the 1st report (reportONE) input controle is loaded with the parameters sent from the drill down report (reportTWO)

But what I want is for the report to automaticaly run when it is called from the drill down report (reportTWO) a.k.a skip the input controle screen

EXTRA:

I'm useing iReport 5.0.0
I'm using hyperlinks to drill down/up to the report
If i disable the "Always prompt" option for input controles then the user won't see the input controll screen the 1st time the report is run

I think that you can achieve this if you deselect Mandarory checkbox for the linked report.

Let's suppose you have Main report and 1 parameter and Linked report that should retrieve the same parameter

via the hyperlink feature.

To implement this solution you should configure passing of this parameter via hyperlink you also should

 have corresponding parameter/input control and you should deselect mandatory feature for this Input Control.
