Hi Hans,

Thanks for your input (which I added to the wiki), but even though it works 
fine as expected in the example code sent by Wolfgang, it does not work 
properly on the longer document I have, for some reason unknown to me…

Best regards: OK

Hi all,

I have a list of speakers (and abstracts of their talk) in a rather 
long document, and the name of each speaker is written to a register 
named speakers.
Then with the command \getparameters[Talk] I get the name of each 
speaker and try to write it to the register with


\speakers{\TalkSpeakerName}


You have to add \expanded, i.e. \expanded{\speakers{...}}.


or maybe try the 'expanded' option

\setupregister
  [speakers]
  [style=sansbold,
   n=2,
   expansion=yes]


Indeed this does not work to obtain the result I am looking for: the 
sorting is indeed under the letter « t », and most importantly the 
register gets only the last name in the list instead of getting each 
speaker name.


The following is a (not so minimal…) example. Can anyone help me in 
this matter?


When you replace \getparameters with \setvariables you can set a command
which is applied each time when you set new values.


\defineregister[speakers]

\setupregister
   [speakers]
   [style=sansbold,
    n=2]

\startbuffer[pagetalk]
   \doflushatpar
     {\expanded{\speakers{\getvariable{talk}{speakername}}}%
  \expanded{\pagereference[talk:\getvariable{talk}{speakername}]}}%
   \starttabulate[|f{\bi}l|p|]
   \NC Speaker \EQ \getvariable{talk}{speakername} \NC\NR
   \NC Title   \EQ \getvariable{talk}{title}   \NC\NR

   \NC Room    \EQ \getvariable{talk}{room}    \NC\NR

Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks a lot! Indeed with removing the \doflushatpar and putting the page 
reference out of the tabulate solves all the problems.

Have a nice day: Otared K.

Hi Wolfgang,

Thank you very much for your reply and your wise advice to use the 
\setvariable mechanism. It is indeed much more convenient to use for 
what I intend to do.


The only remaining problem is that when several talks are included in 
my file (in the following example there three of them), then the 
entries to the register are correct but the associated pagenumbers are 
incorrect and are given the last pagenumber: in the following example 
all three talks are given the pagenumber 4 in the register. Is there 
something I am doing wrong?
I moved the link for the page number to the next paragraph because 
putting the reference command into the tabulate environment hasn’t 
worked but in your example the first paragraph starts on the last page. 
This was necessary because the \pagereference starts a new paragraph 
which results in an empty line before the table. A way to fix the page 
number is to omit the \doflushatpar command, the table itself can be 
moved upwards by a line with a negative vertical skip (\vskip-).


\startbuffer[pagetalk]
 %\blank
  \expanded{\pagereference[talk:\getvariable{talk}{speakername}]}%
