Therefore i'm using a hidden field containing the pagename and a suitable filter.
But the Trackerlist must be dynamic.

I'm trying to do something similar, using a tracker for managing tasks instead of the MyTiki Tasks engine, which lacks the ability to create task dependencies and subtasks.

My Task tracker includes a page link to the task page, where the tracker information is listed via pretty tracker. One of my fields is an item link field denoting a Parent task. I would like to be able to dynamically list all of the tasks for which the task page is the parent.

My thoughts were to try doing it via a filter:

{TRACKERLIST(trackerId=Tasks, filterfield=Parent, filtervalue=$page)  / }

Unfortunately this does not work as it does for the #user variable, and using view=page tends to filter on the page selector (Task) field. Is there another way to dynamically pass the $page or Task as a filter variable?

In Tiki 5 RC1 (ReleaseCandidate) you can use special argument variable:

{TRACKERLIST(trackerId=X, filterfield=Y, filtervalue=) /}

You just need to enable "Wiki argument variables" by following Admin ? Editing and Plugins.

Thanks, is there anyway to do this in 4.x?

It didn’t work. Like you mentioned, perhaps it’s because of urchinTracker() set to track ‘virtual pages’. I think we can overcome that by setting ‘Field A Required’ to ‘No’. (The help doc isn’t very clear on this – “The Field x Required option allows you to decide what to do if one of the expressions does not match.” which I assume means that if there is no match, the field won’t be included in the output constructor).http://www.elinksoflondonsale.com/
