  • NAB: force a refresh or event after editing a cell in a grid

    i've made an app to process incoming EDI data that need manual attention

    Basically new edi situation is compared agains the current call-off situation already in the system.

    that comparison is generated in a workfile, .

    currently user can change manually the qty in transit, and when clicking on the grid-row, it already regenerates/refreshes the comparison workfile

    What i would prefer to do is the launch that refresh immediately after the user has changed the qty in transit

    i know at widget level that it is possible to have an app variable for refreshing the data, however my problem is that i nowhere can set this app variable

    is that do-able - or how can this be forced..

    i've added some screenshot that hopefullt will make more clearer of what i'm trying to achieve. Image 009.pngImage 010.pngImage 011.png

    Currently the "Edit Record" row is only there to allow for setting a feature name. For now, you can add a validation (EXNABVAL based) program to your edit grid. Then you can add code in the ProcessEdit procedure to either set an app variable or set the refresh property:

    == OR ==

      Actually maybe setting an app variable is your best route here. I believe we ignore the refresh if the grid is in cell editing.

        Hi Sean.

        Just tried it .. but .... i'm facing issues

        so i've made a program for validating the edit grid .
        in the processEdit i'm changing the value of the app variable that is used in my other grid widget

        PHP Code:
        dcl-proc ProcessEdit;
        dcl-pi *n;

          If (

        end-proc ProcessEdit
        • FIRST ISSUE

          When i change the value . i have the impression that the validation is working. however i would have expected that the window closes and control is return to the grid.

          in this case i first get and empty window with just an 'OK ' button
          and when clicking 'OK' , the edit windows remains
          (see print screens attached)

          Is there a way to close immediately the edit form window ?
        • SECOND ISSUE
          might be related to the isChanged Procedure i'm using ???

          When changing a value from 0 to whatever other value..
          the procedure launches.
          (also from any value to any other (non zero value)

          only when changing it back to 0.. nothing is happening..?

          can this be a bug? or am i doing somethin g wrong?

          You must also return a success property. Add SetResponse('success':'true') within your if statement.
