This function is available from ICM 7.10.24.

1 Introduction

The function effectiveConfigurationParameter() is used to get a specific configuration parameter from a pagelet. The sharing path is taken into account, so if it has been overwritten, the effective configuration parameter is returned.

However, in most cases, the business Logic of the ICM already resolves these parameters when returning Pagelets, Slots and so on. This function is only required in corner cases, where the specific views can not be generated and/or accessed.

The pagelet is shared into domain, and there the title is overwritten with "Bar". If requested in this domain, #Pagelet:Title# would be still "Foo", but with the code above, "Bar" will be printed.
