Problem with DisableControls...

Hi!

I have two tables (tblScale and tblScaleCapacity). tblScaleCapacity has tblScale as it's master, connected through two fields. This works fine, tblScaleCapacity is updated if I change record in tblScale, BUT tblScaleCapacity is not updated when I've issued a tblScale.DisableControls call before I move the record-pointer.

Is there anyway I can override this? I want tblScaleCapacity to follow tblScale even if the controls are disabled...

That is the expected behaviour of Master/Detail relationship. If you call DisableControls, the detail will become out of sync with the master.

Change the tblScale OnChange procedure to call or make a TblScaleCapacity update.

Make the update so that if it still doesn't update properly, that the procedure enables the control, changes the data, and then disables the controls again. This should happen within a tenth of a second, and therefore the data shan't be in danger ;)

Hope this helps,
