passing a url parameter to a visualforce page

edited March 2, 2017 in Questions
So I have a report I wrote as a skuid page.

which expects a url parameter
I included it in a visualforce page (because I want it to display as a pdf)

<apex:page renderAs="pdf" showheader="false" sidebar="false" docType="html-5.0" title="ACME Recruiting - Home">
<skuid:page page="Client_Encounter_Notes" /></apex:page>

how can i pass the url parameter through to the included skuid page. Even when I put the parameter in the url the PDF is blank ?
do i have to write some sort of controller extension ?

    Sorry to rain on your parade, Ken, but using renderAs="pdf" won't work with Skuid Pages, because so much of Skuid is rendered using JavaScript, which the renderAs="pdf" does not support. 

    But stay tuned for the Skuid Summer release, we may have some exciting stuff for you related to making PDF's out of Skuid Pages (safe harbor :)

    I would love an answer to this otherwise; forgetting the pdf part of the question. Looking to pass params between VF-wrapped pages.

    If you pass in URL Parameters to a VF page, Skuid will be able to access them in $Param merges, Model Conditions, Rendering Conditions, etc. 

    Any further information on your use case / what's not working right now?
