How to get a new record to display in a list

Hi,

 

I am using 8.5 Advanced.

 

I have a list in a Table1 window (not a portal).

I open a new window using the same table.

I create a new record in that window.

I then want to close that window and see the new record in the original list.

 

In v5 I would create the new record in a different layout in the same window and the new record would appear in the list when I returned to the list layout.

 

I could do it with flags and another find - but that would be very messy and slow - I have over 30,000 records.

 

Is there a better simpler way - I have a feeling I am missing something?

Hi Hunter,

 

It is an interface thing - the list window is maximized to the screen, the layout for data entry is about one quater the size.

 

I used to do it that way in older versions and resize the new record entry window, then resize back again, but it always looked clunky - IMHO, the new window approach is much, much better from a UI perspective.

 

From a programing point of view, using the same window is far easier.

Why open a new window, instead of navigating to the other layout and then returning to original layout, if that's the behavior you want?

Button to close new window after record has been created:

 

Commit Records/Requests

Close Window [ current window ]

 

The Commit will make your other layout see the new record. Become close intimate friends with Commit Records/Requests ... you will need it frequently now that you are in 7/8.

Hi LaRetta,

 

I am already doing this - but not getting the desired result smiley-frown

 

Further investigation is required, there is something wrong somewhere :confused:

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Commit Records/Requests

Close Window [ current window ]

Hi,

 

Problem solved - weird but solved! Here is my script for saving the new record:

 

-----

Commit Records...

Go to Layout [OriginalList]

Perform Script [MaximizeHieght] //List layout is larger

Close Window [OriginalListWindow]

Set Window Title [OriginalListWindowTitle]

-----

 

Has some degree of 'klunk' but it does not 'flash' much and keeps the original found set with the new record added.

 

Thanks for you help

 

Greg
