New Record Placeholder in table view

Postby pradiptab » Thu Sep 23, 2010 7:41 am

Hello everyone,

If you have marked in FileMaker there is a New Record place holder at the end of List views. It makes ease of adding new records just by tabbing. No need to move the cursor to the New record button and to click it again and again for adding records.

So can we have some property set for the table/List views to append one blank row at the end, which will actually act as a New Record placeholder?
And for current release Servoy 5.2 is there any alternative to achieve this?

you could do that by setting a onfocusLost Method of the last column in the table-view
in that method you could find out, if the index == foundset.getSize() and than do foundset.newRecord()
If you than tab trough the columns, after the last column, a new record is been created automaticly
