    Default Why The Difference

    I am attempting to display SHIP TO and INVOICE TO data as Web Components using a filter to display one record. If I make the Grid READ ONLY then only one record is displayed. If I make the Grid UPDATEABLE then I get multiple unfilled records. The setup of the grids are identical with the exception of Read Only vs Updateable. Am I doing something wrong? I have attached a JPG of the difference. The Read Only is the right column and the Updateable is the Left Column.

    Thanks

    By default, an updateable grid allows for entering new records, which is why there are the extra blank rows. Simply uncheck the box for the allow new records setting.

    The only option I could find to eliminate the extra blank rows was ALLOW INSERT, I could not find any other. I plan on having people add records, how can I prevent the extra fields without turning off the capability of adding fields?

    In addition, I have included a JPG of an a5w file that has a couple of possible problems.
    1. On the Read Only grids the text above the grids are positioned the same. However, on the grid that is updateable (SUBMIT) there is extra line between the title and grid. I checked the parameters and there is only one line of info.
    2. The 3 grids are part of a table 1 Row/3 Columns. How can I get the grids to line up with each other to be more symetrical? I would like the top of the grids to be aligned.

    thanks

    I realize that maybe this thread should have been on the WAS Forum...but I will continue with my chances here for coming up with answers.

    Thanks

    how will people be able to add new records if you have turned off 'allow insert'? -- they can't.

    if you turn on 'allow insert' then the grid will show (by default) 3 empty records for users to add new records. you can change the number of empty records that are shown.

    it is now clear how you screenshot was generated. is it one grid or multiple grids?

    you should probably move this thread to the right forum.
