Hi,
I use the following formula for a button
however only the mailsend line is executed
all other fields keep their original content rather than the assigned one from the
following codes. I guess it does not matter with the type of the
fields since I can set the field contents of same fields using same codes
for another button.
Any clues?
thanks!!!

FIELD bstatus :="approved";
FIELD status := "Registered";
@MailSend(user;ITuser;"";"Your PPCR is approved" ;"";"Your PPCR is approved.";[IncludeDoclink]);
@SetField("MAIL_SEND"; "Y");
FIELD regHis :=  "On " + @Text(@Now) + ", " + @Name([CN];@UserName);
FIELD regStatus :=  "On " + @Text(@Now) +",  " + @Name([CN];@UserName);
@Command([FileSave]);
@PostedCommand([OpenFrameset];"Sales")

Are these fields computed or computed for display type? That may be the case.

Hi,
They are all editable fields.

I have tried something different and noted that
if I add a text field A beside the button

the button will set the content of field B to be that of field A
If i fill in field A then in addition to the mail being sent out
field B is also set to the value of field A.
If I delete field A and the button set
the content of B to some hardcoded string then
only the mail is sent out but the content of field B remains its original value.

The document has been saved already, before sending the mail ?

I've pasted this code in a test appl.  and for me, it works fine (except that I can't open the frameset, of course)
I do have some problems getting the mail delivered : this only works if I save the document first ....

If you use R6, you can detect an error in the mailsend command like this :
@iferror(@MailSend(user;ITuser;"";"Your PPCR is approved" ;"";"Your PPCR is approved.";[IncludeDoclink]);@return( @prompt([ok];"error";"Error sending mail"));

Maybe change @command([filesave]) to @postedcommand([filesave]) ?

cheers,

Tom

I still encounter the same problem even if I create a new
button and paste the code to the new button.
is there any possible causes?
Thanks!

Yes, there are possible causes :

- the value of the fields is changed somewhere else (querysave event, field translation, computed fields)
- the user can't edit the document (rights ?)
- the document is not in Edit mode

cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,
How can I set a form in edit mode when I open it from a document link in mail
or from a view?
Basically i want to open it in edit mode based on the user role.

Thanks.

Is it on web or client?

In client,use PostOpen event to execute a UIDOC.EditMode = True

Further, to cause a document to automatically open in edit mode unconditionally, you can set it form property "Automatically enable edit mode" on the second tab of form properties. But be warned that will not perform any role testing. To test for the role you can consider writing a function.

If it is for web, you can use the EditDocument URL command. The syntax is: http://Host/Database/View/Document?EditDocument
