Enabling and Disabling Fields

This method in the Dialog class allows you to disable fields on a form during the interactive statement; the field is still visible, but the user cannot edit the value.

Values for the active state of the field can be:

  • 0 - FALSE, the field is disabled
  • 1 - TRUE, the field is enabled

The reference to the DIALOG object is provided by the runtime system. Provide the name of the field and its state to the method.

The following example disables the store_name field during an INPUT statement:
   INPUT BY NAME customer.*
      CALL DIALOG.setFieldActive("customer.store_name",0)

See the The Dialog class section in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide for a complete list of its methods.
