    Default BW_IBHIFBEDJ?

    To: A5 Gurus

    I thought I was on a roll with this neat program until....

    I looked at one of the databases' menu, 'Contact Manager', in form design. I right-clicked on the button highlight and found NO actions. Then I right-clicked on the next one - no actions and no 'setup' tab like the first.

    Another look at the code editor did show events listed under 'button1', 'button2', etc. Then I saw below...

    :Form.view("Contact Manager", "", "BW_IBHIFBEDJ")

    What do all those letters mean and where in the documentation can I read about their significance?

    You see, I've been dragging a button off the list and on to the form and selecting Inline Xbasic for the actions and it all seems to work quite well.

    Geeeez - will I ever learn.

    If this is an old form, it sounds like the kind of code that A5v2 generated for its buttons. If this is a new form, I wouldn't have any idea what those letters means. What happens if you just change the code to
    form.view("Contact Manager")?

    Thanks for answering, Peter

    "...What happens when you change the code......"
    NOTHING - everything works as advertised. Doesn't matter.
    Look in the docs for Form.view() it shows THREE parameters,

    Form.view() Page 111 Doc version of Xbasic
    Syntax:
    = Form.view(Form Name, [Style], [Window name])

    See, the form name, style, and window name.

    It may be an old form where I found this, however, it's packaged in 'Databases' samples in the A5 V4.5 CD-Rom and installation.

    Just curious - haven't had any trouble without those last two parameters. The second parameter is used for 'dialog' method. Interesting, isn't it?

    Thanks again Peter for your interest

    Ken
