getExternalValue with parameters read from an input field


I would like to create a CRF with one input field and a link.
The link points to an external source (I use the getExternalValue and the postMessage functions).
After the form has been saved I would like to add the input value to the link as an extra parameter(so when the user wants to change the saved value my link would look like this: www.example.com/example.php?item=mainForm.inputXY&extra=the_saved_value_from_the_input_field).

Is there any solution for that?

    I don't think that is possible with getExternalValue: the format is limited to the ID of the input and you can not add the value of the input.
    If you can implement another method than getExternalValue, it is worth having a look at 
    This is not entirely your situation, but take the part that opens another window and add the value of the input to the querystring.
    I hope this is enough information to get going, otherwise feel free to ask.
    Kind regards,
