Remote Views in Forms and Grids

Remote Views in Forms and Grids

Remote Views in Forms and Grids


Sorry, this is a mundane question requiring a long answer, but I am just tearing my hair out.

I want a form to have a combo box, that selects clients.  This is from a remote view.
Then I want a grid to show the contracts, which is a table in a foxpro database.  This should be refreshed depeding on the client selected in the combo box.
All on one form.

How can I do this?

Maybe someone has an example app they could mail me?

Many Thanks in advance if someone can sort this one for me.

RE: Remote Views in Forms and Grids

Well, let's work backwards.  We should have some variable like "mClientID" which was set from the ComboBox.  Now make your grid's record source type be 4 - SQL Statement.  Then whereever you're selecting the client, you insert the line:

thisform.gContracts.RecordSource = "SELECT* FROM tContracts Con INTO CURSOR cCursor WHERE Con.ClientID = mClientID"

This should get you started.  If you need help setting up the ComboBox, let us know.  

RE: Remote Views in Forms and Grids

Thanks for the tip.

I need the grid to be updateable and I dont think SQL statements allows this.

I can get it working with two grids fine, but I would prefer a combo box and a grid.

One problem I face is that the remote view has no index, so I create one using INDEX.
