FOCUS Fridays VUG - Intermediate MODIFY, FOCUS Database Server (FDS/SU), MAINTAIN Tasks, Events and Actions

Welcome to November’s FOCUS Friday. This month we will be looking at the MODIFY language and how you can expand its functionality using Case Logic activation and multi-record processing. We will also be reviewing the FOCUS Database Server aka Sink Machine and its use with FOCUS and XFOCUS files. And for those of you looking at MAINTAIN, we will be covering events, tasks and actions.

Intermediate Modify

Following a quick review of basic MODIFY, this session will introduce you to case logic and the wide variety of functionality it adds to your application development. Field and segment activation to fine tune transaction record changes, and multi-record processing using the SPA will also be covered. The MODIFY language is easy to use and as powerful as you need it - join us to see how.

FOCUS Database Server (FDS/SU)

The FOCUS Database Server/Simultaneous Usage machine is used to allow updating of a FOCUS/XFOCUS database by different users at the same time. It prevents updates of the same record at the same time. In this session we will show how to configure your WebFOCUS Server to access files using the FDS/SU.

Maintain Tasks, Events, and Actions

What happens when the user interacts with objects on the form? What happens when the form first displays? This presentation looks at JavaScript events, Maintain tasks, and actions that can combine them. We also discuss Onload functions and Connection tasks.
