    Default Watch Expression?

    I'm having a hard time with this...

    """A change in the Watch Expression field apparently triggers a repopulation of the list box choices"""

    I'm simply entering a field name in the Watch Expression, and nothing in the other filter fields (I don't want to filter). Not only does the list not repopulate, it doesn't even save the Watch Expression definition after clicking OK.

    What am I doing wrong, please?

    without seeing your code/statement, it is hard to say because you could be referring to

    .WATCH_CREATE( Watchname as C, Path as C, Flags as C, Code as C )


    or

    {WATCH=Variable!Event_Name}

    and it is possible to miswrite either in a variety of ways.

    Stan, I'm not using Xbasic directly, I'm simply using A5's dialog box:

    Listbox / Properties / Choices / Computed Automatically / Edit Filter Expression

    When you get thus far, you get a dialog box asking for a Watch Expression.

    There's no documentation about this I can find.

    All I want to do is repopulate the choices when a new entry is made to the table from which the labels/values are drawn.

    Thanks for any help.
