How To Enable Column in FreeForm Query

Posted by Admin on 07-Oct-2009 00:20

want to Enable a column for Updating in freeFormQuery browser(OPENEDGE 10.1c) I tried Using Handles and all by specifying the attribute READ-ONLY but its giving the error that column should be enabled in Define Browse stmt for attribute Read-ONLy.Can anyone know how to make it work, I Have popmenu in a browse with UPDATE option when i press Update then only it should be enabled. I wrote ENABLE in DISPLAY trigger it works but its always ENABLED which i dont want.I tried to use READ-ONLY = false and True in triggers this generates an Run time Error ( ERROR NUmber 4477 and 3131). Is it possible to have column Enable and disabled according to our wish in FreeForm Query.

You're almost there. Use the ENABLE piece in the DISPLAY trigger to enable the fields necessary. In the main block after the RUN ENABLE_UI. you add the code to disable the field(s) (i.e. set it to READ-ONLY). In the popup menu-item trigger code use the READ-ONLY attribute to enable/disable the field(s) as you wish. I've attached a small example procedure to illustrate this. It was created in 10.2A but should normally work the same in 10.1C.
