Rowbound actions

Set the Row Bound property on a relation between forms to render a contextual action to the current row.

The Row Bound property specifies whether the action set in the Action property will appear as a context menu option on the row. If your form only has one record, BAM automatically uses that record as the Source Record for the Row Bound property. If your form has more than one record, you must set the Row Bound and the Source Record property to specify for which record the Row Bound property is to be applied.

To set an action other than the action being used to open a form to rowbound, customize the action in the code with ATTRIBUTES(ROWBOUND). For example, this custom code adds a user action print and makes it rowbound.
 {<POINT Name="dlg.recOrders.uiDisplay.userControlBlocks" Status="MODIFIED">} 
        DISPLAY "print"

The delete action is always available via swipe left unless you have set the canDelete form functionality property to unchecked (false). See Enable and disable CRUD logic.

For more information on rowbound actions, see the Rowbound topics in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
