    Get HTTP/XML Data into a tooltip

    Elliott Bowles

      Hi all,

       

      Been doing some searching but haven't come up with a concrete solution yet. I'm working on a database that tracks shipping data. I'm trying to add a feature where I can take the tracking number that's in my dataset and lookup relevant tracking info via web-api that the courier provides. Its an XML HTTP API that uses simple post / get requests. I'd ideally show the results of this lookup in a shipment info tooltip.

       

      I know the web data connector exists, is that the best way to go, or am I missing something obvious?

       

      Thanks for any insight!
