Defining the action for a row choice

The row choice in a TABLE can be associated with a dedicated action.

When using a DISPLAY ARRAY dialog to control a list view like a TABLE or TREE, the physical event to choose a row has the following results, depending on the type of front-end:
  • With the desktop / web browser front-end, by default, a mouse double-click changes the current row, and fires the "accept" action, if available. If the default accept action is fired, the dialog will end, except if the accept action has been disabled or was overwritten by an ON ACTION accept handler. This default behavior applies to most record lists of desktop applications, where the main purpose is to let the user choose a row from the list. The DOUBLECLICK option of DISPLAY ARRAY can be used to define a different action to be fired for a double-click with the mouse. If needed, the physical event (single or double click) to trigger this action can be defined with the rowActionTrigger style attribute.
  • With a mobile device, a single tap and double tap on a row only changes the current row. If a single or double tap on a row must fire an action, define the action to be triggered with the DOUBLECLICK option of the DISPLAY ARRAY dialog, and configure the physical event to fire this action with the rowActionTrigger style attribute.
