What is the 'navigator' property?

Postby john1598360627 » Thu Jul 28, 2022 1:35 am

Form > Properties

There's an option for something called 'navigator'.

What is this? What does it do?

Hi,

Originally the navigator property was used to show or hide a default element on a record view form and could be used to step/scroll through the different records in a foundset.
It was extended in a way that you could also assign a form that would serve that same purpose.

Hmm I'm a bit confused about that description, like you would click records in that foundset and it would show another form?

That wiki page doesn't show an example of implementation so I'm still having a hard time visualizing it. Is there some type of video, perhaps a Servoy Webinar, that shows an example?

Nope, it's not that.
It's a table view that would show you the different rows in a foundset, if you click a row in that form, the main form will show you that record.
Anyway, that's the least important part as you can not create table views anymore in NG-client.

To see the behaviour of the default navigator, just set this property to 'DEFAULT'
