I have a function which is meant to do the following.

It checks thoses columns of datawindow whoose required property is checked.

If data is note entered in that column then it throws message like this

'Value required for column +[column in question]'

It is working for one column.

For example, if the datawindow has more than one required columns and it would
throw message for the first column. ok.

But when I click the save button again , it does not do anything.

Calling method:
IF f_checkrequired (dw_master) = 0 THEN RETURN  



$PBExportHeader$f_checkrequired.srf

$PBExportComments$Checks that all required columns in a DataWindow control are filled in

global type f_checkrequired from function_object

end type
 

forward prototypes

global function integer f_checkrequired (datawindow adw_control)

end prototypes
 

global function integer f_checkrequired (datawindow adw_control);integer li_colnbr = 1

long ll_row = 1

string ls_colname, ls_textname 
 

IF adw_control.AcceptText() = -1 THEN

	adw_control.SetFocus()

	RETURN 0

END IF
 

IF adw_control.FindRequired( primary!, ll_row, li_colnbr, ls_colname, true ) < 1 THEN

	RETURN 0

END IF
 

IF ll_row <> 0 THEN

	// Get the text of that column's label.

	ls_textname = ls_colname + "_t.Text"

	ls_colname = adw_control.Describe(ls_textname)

	// Tell the user which column to fill in.

	MessageBox("Required Value Missing","Please enter a value for '" + ls_colname , exclamation!)

	// Make the problem column current.

	adw_control.SetColumn(li_colnbr)

	adw_control.ScrollToRow(ll_row)

	adw_control.SetFocus()

	RETURN 0

END IF

RETURN 1

end function

Open in new window

did you check the 'empty string is null' check box for all columns? Because find required will report only if column value is NULL.

Actually you can debug your code and see from where it is retruning without message.
