HOW TO: Refresh records updated by external systems

Postby pbakker » Fri Nov 21, 2003 11:49 am

Hi,

One of the new features not documented in the RC10 release topic is the ability to requery a record. This might be handy if you have other applications besides Servoy updating your database and you want to be sure your user is looking at the correct info.

I've created a method that you can store as a Global Method and then, for example, attach to a button of ANY form, or use in other methods. It refreshes the data directly displayed on your form (not portals or tabpanels).

for ( var i = 0 ; i <= eval("forms."+currentcontroller.getName(
+".controller.getMaxRecordIndex()") ; i++ )
{
databaseManager.refreshRecordFromDatabase(eval
("forms."+currentcontroller.getName()+".foundset"),i)
}

Basically, this method loops through all records in the foundset and by using the currentcontroller.getName() function, it can be used on any form.

Hope this inspires people to do cool stuff....
