Hi Martin,

I've used $cinst.$clientcommand("savepreference", 
row("PrefID",PrefValue)) and the related 
$cinst.$clientcommand("loadpreference",row('PrefID','iVar')) to get 
properties from remote forms into Instance Variables available on the 
server.  The above methods have to be run on the client (pink methods in 
the UI) and then the iVar can be used in server executed methods after 
it has been populated.
