Need to hook into the Appbuilder field chooser

Posted by Darren Parr on 18-Jul-2013 10:09


Does anyone know how to hook into the adm2 field chooser. I know that the appbuilder populates the contents from an SDO or from a connected db. I would like to augement this procss by being able to show a programmer a list of fields from a prodataset such that once dropped the fields are linked to the prodataset. I can then look after fetching the PDS buffers in includes etc.

Some pointers on what to look for would be helpful.

Kind Regards

There should be (in relatively modern, even going back to probably 10.1A) an option to do something like this via the TEMP-DB.

There's a Tools > TEMP-DB maintenance tool that lets you add temp-table fields for use by various smartobjects.

Search the doc for 'TEMP-DB'; this link probably has the best overview of the above
