First Field on Create Record property

Previous Next

This is where you can specify whether the cursor should automatically move to the first field in a window when Create Record mode is entered. A user can put a window into Create Record mode by choosing Record, New from the menu, for example.

The first field is the first field specified in the tab-order of the info box that executes the operation. For example, in the case of a Parent with an embedded detail, when a query is performed in the detail the cursor will move to the first field in the tab-order of the controls that are part of the detail.


This property can be set at Generic level and overridden, if desired, at subclass level.
