First Field on Data Manipulation property

Previous Next

This is where you can specify whether the cursor should automatically move to the first field in a window when Data Manipulation mode is entered. A user can put a window into Data Manipulation mode by executing a query to fetch an existing record, 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.
