abc clarion record delete issue

abc clarion record delete issue

abc clarion record delete issue


I imported a legacy app to abc (c55ee) and have embeded code in a browse delete button that will run a procedure to check if any related data is in another file, then display a message allowing the user to have the system delete the related data if applicable. When the delete button is pressed it goes though this code but then calls the update form screen with the ok button focused but unresponsive, even if no records were found in any related file and does not display the record deletion confirmation window. If this code is bypassed (local variable indicates this should be skipped), the delete confirmation / record deletion works fine. Does anyone have any ideas why this may be happeing. It works fine in the legacy version.


RE: abc clarion record delete issue

May I suggest you have a look at file relationships and how to set them up in the DCT because the way I understand it is if a record is deleted the action can be made to Cascade to the related file.
