Lookup Pages and Their Data Sources

Lookup pages allow you to query parent records within a parent-child relationship. Lookup pages have almost the same structure as info pages, the main difference being the data sources shown in the object tree:

The Lookup object and its LookupColumn objects specify how a data source is linked to another data source.

In the run-time environment, you can access a lookup page by clicking the lookup button for foreign key fields from the info page corresponding with a child table.

By default, a lookup page does not perform an automatic query when it is opened. You can perform an automatic query by setting the Initial State property to: Query Records.

The Initial State property is a property of the TableDataSource object.
