Master Form Capacities
Most fields generate events that can then be handled by Field Procedures. Field procedures are defined on the back side of the master form. These procedures operate within the context of the data form.
Field events are:
- Field changed (excluding Form Reference field and Pattern Text field)
- Field is valid/invalid (Form Reference field and Pattern Text field only)
- Action button clicked
Most fields produce the changed event. This is produced with each keystroke in the input component of the field. The Form Reference and Pattern Text fields produce the valid/invalid events. The action button produces field clicked event.
Using the field events you can perform various procedures. For example, when a customer form reference field is filled in and generates the ‘field is valid’ event the procedure can do things like get the sum of outstanding invoices associated with that customer and display the quantity on the data form.
