Field is not updated in a second window


#1

Clarion63:
Browse-Form-Window in same thread to enter a field from the form file-back to de form-the field is ok.
Clarion10/11:
Browse-Form-Window in same thread to enter a field from the form file-back to de form-the field is unchanged.
Any idea why and how to sort it ?
Thanks

I have a vague recollection of needing to change the UseType to UseType:Returns when calling Access:YourTable.UseFile() in the called procedure. Not sure if that is what you need.

A standard update form automatically calls UseFile(UseType:Returns) for the forms table.
Perhaps this update form is totally standard?

In standard templates returning from an update usually forces a refresh of the browse, but in non-standard arrangements the browse might not be refreshed, so what is showing may well differ from the file buffer. If you have Tabs on the browse, a easy check for this is just to change tabs and see if the new value shows.
The help has quite a bit on choosing the right method to refresh either the browse or window, if it turns out that is what is needed.
