[icf-dev] Problem with tab-order and dynamic combos and lookups

  • I have run into a situation that I hope someone here can help me with.

    I need to be able to identify where an item in a viewer is within the

    tab-order of that viewer. I am able to use the TAB-POSITION attribute when

    I'm working with standard field-level widgets.

    However, I am not having any success using TAB-POSITION with dynamic combos

    and dynamic lookups. They are all returning 1 (indicating that they should

    be the first entry in the tab-order). Progress is obviously doing

    something to determine their position within the tab-order, but I haven't

    been able to figure what I'm missing.

    Any suggestions??

    Thanks--

  • If I recall correctly, TAB-POSITION is related to position within a

    frame. Dynamic combos and lookups are within their own frame, so they

    would be 1 within that frame. I'm not sure how you could determine its

    position in the overall scheme.

  • Hi

    If they are frames then they are part of a frame family. Hence you

    should be able to do something like the following where is

    the lookups frame.

    FRAME :FRAME:TAB-POSITION

  • On terminal server, the Ok, Cancel, Apply, Clear, Help do not appear after

    permanet.

    I have already placed a call with Tech Support on this issue. Can anyone

    point out what is the issue here. It does appear to be

    with Metaframe as the same application works fine in pure NT or W2K

    environments.

    TIA,
