Hi,

1. How can we edit data in a datawindow of any type(tabular, gird,freeform etc.)?

I have taken one datawindow as tabular and i am displaying empolyee info in it. I want to perform add/edit/delete operation in the grid itself like:

when i click add it should enable all the grid columns and allow to add new record in the grid. When i click on edit it should enable all the columns and to edit any value. when i click delete it should delete current record.

How can i implement this in PB 8.0.1 datawindow?

2. Also i have taken one field in the dw as checkbox. but when i click on the checkbox runtime. It is not changing the value as checked or unchecked. like the checkbox is not activating.

how i can activate the checkbox in dw?

please tell me what are the various ways to design editable datawindows?

i searched a lot on net but i didn't get sufficient info abt. this.

please reply ASAP

Thanks

Check the Tab Order of the fields.
All the fields that you want to be editable should have a Tab Order value of > 1.
There is a button in the datawindow painter toolbar, for setting tab order.

hi,

first check if all ur columns are in the detail band...
in case ur columns are in the header band u cannot edit them....

next check the tab sequence of all the columns...
i guess all are zero.. thats the reason u cannot edit the columns...

go to the design view of ur datawindow and in the main menu u will find
Format----> Tab Order

click on tab order and u will find red color higlighted numbers over each of ur columns ....

give them numbers like 10,20,30,40.... in the sequence u want them to move...

do ask for more assistance...

Cheers,
Rosh
