Initial value (type)

Allows setting an initial value for the field when the application is in inclusion. You can choose between two options:

Pre-set value: When you select this option, the Initial Value attribute will be made available in the place where we inform the initial value of the field.
For example, my initial value is Arlindo when inserting a new record the seller_name field will start with Arlindo.

System date: When you select this option, the initial value will be the current system date of your computer.

If you select the type system date, it will be not necessary to fill in the initial value attribute.

Initial Value setting interface.

Amount of characters

It allows you to set the width of the input text field according to the amount of characters. However, if the quantity entered is greater than the set for the characters, the text will be pushed to the left, in order to ensure the maximum amount of characters set in the option of Values formatting.

Validation Image

When you enable this option, an image will be shown next to the field informing whether the field is in accordance with the settings of minimum size and Maximum size (as you can see in the images below) defined in the Formatting value option.

In the example below, the field was set to receive at least 5 characters, see what happens with the image when it receives only 4 characters:
Validation image 1

However, if the value inserted has 5 or more characters the the image will change according to example bellow:
Validation image 2

Use slider:

It displays a slider component in the field. So you can increase or decrease the value sliding the cursor. You can also customize the increment value, if it incremends the value 1 by 1, 2, 5, 10… N.

Field Mask Input:

It sets the mask input for the field. There are two types of mask as described in the table below:

Character Description
X It is overridden by any characters returned by the database. Filled is required and the value will be completed with leading zeros when there are fewer characters than the size of the mask.
Z It is overridden by any characters returned by the database. Its filling is optional and when there are fewer characters than the mask size, nothing will be done about the characters that are missing. In addition the leading zeros will be suppressed. When used in conjunction with the X necessarily the use of this character is to the left of the mask.
9 It represents any numeric character (from 0-9)
A It represents an alpha numeric character (A-Z,a-z)
* It represents any alpha-numeric character (A-Z,a-z,0-9)entered by the user.

By enabling this option you will be able to enter data according to the mask that was configured in the option Field Mask and Scriptcase will validate it.

Record Variable

Allows you to record a session variable with the value of the field ([global variable] [var_glob]), to be used in other applications.

Example, no formulário de login o nome do usuário pode ser salvo em sessão e exibido no cabeçalho de outras aplicações.

Variable Name

In this option you must set the session variable name, enabled in the previous item, which will receive the value of the field.

You need to inform only the variable name, for example: var_seller.

Set the variable name

The recovery of the value is made as [Global Variable][var_glob]{:target=’blank’}.

Field size in Database

This option sets the size of the field relative to the size that is configured in the database. By default this value is already configured automatically when the application is generated.

Hidden Field

This option when enabled will hide the field inside the application at the time of execution.

Label Field

By enabling this option, the field will be changed to only one label where the information will be displayed, so it is not possible to make changes or inserts in the field configured as label. Label Execucao

Pre-set value configuration interface

Auto increment (automatic):

It allows you to use the increase generated automatically by the database to fill the field. It is used only when the database field is of type AUTO INCREMENT or similar. For the databases that use string, such as Oracle, PostGres and Firebird, you must inform the name of the string.

Auto increment configuration interface

Auto increment (mannual):

The application itself will simulate an auto increment in the field. So the value of the field will be calculated automatically by the application.

Date of inclusion:

The field will be populated automatically with server date during the inclusion.

Date of update:

The field will be populated automatically with server date during the update.

Lookup Settings

The Lookup is a way used to provide the end user a list of values description/name where the items can be selected and used in the application. For example, for a field sex that in the database is represented with M or F values can be presented as male or female dynamically with the lookup. So you will be able to retrieve these values from a database table or manually, if the reference table does not exist.

Example:

Grid field lookup settings.

Lookup Methods

There are two lookup methods available:

Mannual: To use this method it is necessary to inform the selection conditions manually to the Lookup.

Automatic: To use this method it is necessary to use a lookup query from the database to access the reference table.

Selecting the lookup method

Editing-automatic lookup:

Grid automatic lookup interface

Select Command:

It sets the SQL command that will retrieve the value to display inside the Grid field. The command must have the following format ‘SELECT field_to_be_diplayed FROM table WHERE key_field = {grid_field} ‘.

The Grid field must be always referenced between curly braces {}, So at run time, the field braces will be replaced by its value in the table.

Multiple Options:

When the Select command informed return multiple values, the option must be selected.

Delimiter:

It sets the tab of values returned by the Select command, this option should be filled when the “Yes” option is checked in the multiple attribute options.

Use the lookup in:

Grid: It applies the lookup in all Grid modules (HTML, PDF, XML, CSV, and RTF).

Summary: It applies the lookup only to the Summary (HTML and PDF).

Both This is equivalent to check Grud and Summary options.

Default Value:

Defines a default value, used in cases where the stored value does not match any value from the list.

Display original value and lookup:

When selected No, is only displayed the value returned by the Select command. Otherwise, it returns the original value of the field and the value that is returned by the Select command separated by character set in separated by.

Separated By:

Sets the character(s) that will be used to separate the orignal value of the field and the value that is returned by the Select command. This option should be filled when is checked Yes in the Show’s original value and lookup.

Use a specific connection:

This option allows you to select another existing connection in the project, other than the current connection, to select the values for the lookup.

Edit Lookup - Mannual:

Lookup used to modify the display of the field with predefined values.

Grid mannual lookup interface.

Lookup Types

It sets the operating mode of the lookup can be: single value, multiple values (delimiter), multiple values (position) and multiple values (binary).

Single value: it will be displayed only one value for the field. There is a direct replacement of the value stored in the Bank for a label defined in a list.

Single lookup configuration

Label: Text that will be displayed in the Grid.

Value: Attribute that matches the value stored in the table. For example, the value of “M” will be replaced by “Male”.

Multiple Values (Delimiter):

By using this option it will be displayed multiple values for the selected field. The values must be separated by a delimiter to be informed. A replacement of parts from a string stored in the field, separated by a delimiter for values contained in a list.

Multivalue lookup configuration (delimiter)

Label: Text that will be displayed in the Grid.

Value: Attribute that matches the value stored in the table. For example, the value S;M will be replaced by Sports and Movies.

Delimiter: Character used to separate the values within the same string.

Multiple Values (Position)

Allows you to recover information stored in a single string of the selected field. In order for this information to be retrieved must be informed, in addition to the label, the starting position and the number of bytes that each information occupies within the string.

As an example we will use a string to store Sex, Marital status and Hobby respectively. Sex occupies one byte, Status one byte and Hobby two bytes .

For this purpose we define the list as:

Label Value Start Size
Male M 1 1
Female F 1 1
Married M 2 1
Single S 2 1
Study ST 3 2
Sportes SP 3 2
Reading LE 3 2

Example: the string MMST would be presented in the query as: Male Married Study

Multivalue lookup configuration (position)

Label: Text that will be displayed in the Grid.
Value: Attribute that matches the value stored in the table. For example, the value M will be replaced by Male.
Start: : Starting position in the string where the information is recorded. The first position is always 1.
Size : Number of bytes that the information occupies in the string.

Multiple values (binary):

It allows you to retrieve several information stored in decimal form of the selected field.

As examples we will use the following list (although not informed in the interface of inclusion of values in the list, each item has a value assigned automatically according to the order):

Assigned value Description in Lookup
1 Sports
2 Culture
4 Leisure
8 Reading
16 Music

To display the data, a decomposition of the decimal number stored in the bank is performed. For example, numbers 11 and 12 (written in the database) would be decomposed as follows:

11 = 1 + 2 + 8 = (Sports - Culture - Reading)

Assigned value Description in Lookup
1 Sports
2 Culture
4 Leisure
8 Reading
16 Music

12 = 4 + 8 = ( Leisure - Reading)

Assigned value Description in Lookup
1 Sports
2 Culture
4 Leisure
8 Reading
16 Music

Multiple value lookup configuration (binary).

Label:

Text that will be displayed in the Grid.

Include Button:

Includes in the list the values populated in the Label and value fields.

Alter Button:

It changes the attributes of the selected item.

Delete Button:

Deletes the selected item.

Clean Button:

It cleans the fiels

Save Button:

Allows the user to save the entire list, for later use using the Load Lookup definition option.

Load Lookup definition:

Allows you to load a predefined value list for use as a lookup.

Use the lookup in:

Grid: It applies the lookup in all Grid modules (HTML, PDF, XML, CSV, and RTF).

Summary: It applies the lookup only to the Summary (HTML and PDF).

Both This is equivalent to check Grud and Summary options.

Default Value:

Defines a default value, used in cases where the stored value does not match any value from the list.

Display original value and lookup:

When selected No, is only displayed the value returned by the Select command. Otherwise, it returns the original value of the field and the value that is returned by the Select command separated by character set in separated by.

Separated By:

Sets the character(s) that will be used to separate the orignal value of the field and the value that is returned by the Select command. This option should be filled when is checked Yes in the Show’s original value and lookup.
