This can be done in procedure which is called when user selects some option from the popup (Esc key deactivates the popup and leaves the variable empty):

USE Customer
SET ORDER TO cust_name
SET CONFIRM ON
PRIVATE lcSelectedCust
 
DEFINE POPUP MyPop PROMPT FIELD customer.cust_name RELATIVE SCROLL TITLE "Select Customer"  && you may use more parameters
ON SELECTION POPUP MyPop DO l_custSelection WITH PROMPT()
 
 
*-- Your code
 
 
lcSelectedCust = ""
ACTIVATE POPUP MyPop
*-- Here the lcSelectedCust variable contains selected Cusomer name
 
 
*-- Other commands etc...
 
RELEASE POPUPS MyPop
 
 
PROCEDURE l_custSelection
PARAMETER lcPrompt
 
lcSelectedCust = lcPrompt
DEACTIVATE POPUP MyPop
 
RETURN

Open in new window

When you move up and down the popup, you also move the record pointer of the base table.

So you can have something like

DEFINE POPUP MyPop PROMPT FIELD customer.cust_name RELATIVE SCROLL TITLE "Select Customer"
ON SELECTION POPUP MyPop deactivate popup
activate popup MyPop
if bar()<>0
   ?customer.cust_name
else
   ?'nothing selected'
endif

I've been thinking how to deactivate popup and assign the selected value into variable without procedure call and tusharkanvinde answered it in advance :-)

I would recommend to assign points to tusharkanvinde.
