CB code autoaction with external file

CB code autoaction with external file was created by activha
Hi

I don't remember how to access the storing of params in CB Activity table via an external file.

Using an autoaction this is :
$variables['var3']->params()->set( 'location', $newLocation )

but on an external file called by the same autoaction, can I simply use $row->set ? or is it through $action-> ?

On a second topic I read that autoaction now supports $actiondata. Can I use this to transfer the result of an outside php file called in the autoaction to it and use this result in the following lines of the autoaction and how ?

Thanks for the hints

What do you mean by this? You have a Code action with Method set to PHP and you're including your own file? It's no different than if you weren't using a file except you can't use substitutions in your file. Your own topics below have examples already for using CB Activity params storage.

Action data is used to add additional substitutions while an auto action is executed. Its primary purpose is to pass newly created objects to substitutions for usage in the Output tab. It's not a means of passing it wherever you like.

Yes this code works in the code area of the autoaction but not in an external file
I try using the trigger activity_OnAfterCreateStringActivity so the variables is 3 and the activity is retrieved by :
$activ_id = $action->string($user, '[var3_id]');
which works fine but
$variables['var3']->params()->set( 'test', 'test' );
 
That's why I was asking.

Do I have to rebuild the activity object in the php file ?
I also tried 
$variables['var3']->params()->store( 'test', 'test' );

You're using an After trigger. That means it's after the activity was stored. You need to use a Before trigger to add data to the object to be stored. Your code is working fine it's just not storing because wrong trigger.

OK thanks, I'll use a DB query to update the fields from the php that's easier

Then you'd be writing to the database twice for no reason. Why are you needing to do this on the after trigger? Are you needing the activity id? You can also just directly trigger a store yourself instead of writing queries. This is done by just calling ->store() on var3 like how ->params() is called.
