The version property is used to specify a user version string for the form.

This property specifies a version string to distinguish different versions of a form. You can specify an explicit version string or use the TIMESTAMP keyword to force the form compiler to write a timestamp string into the 42f file.

Typical usage is to specify a version of the form to indicate if the form content has changed. This property is used by the front-end to distinguish different form versions and to avoid reloading window/form settings into a new version of a form.

You should use the TIMESTAMP only during development.

For additional information, see the VERSION attribute topic in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
