Handle Selected Record on a Button Click

It is often useful to call custom application logic when a row is selected in a table control in your application:

  • Pass the total of two fields in a selected record as a URL parameter.

  • Display totals of multiple fields in another field.

  • Modify fields in a selected record.

This example sets a total of two fields in another field when a button is clicked within a table row. The specific row is determined and the text is concatenated from two field values in the selected record.

This customization will be added in:

..\<Application Name>\App_Code\<Table Name>\Show<Table Name>Table.Controls.cs

For example: C:\MyApp1\App_Code\Orders\ShowOrdersTable.controls.cs


Step 1:  In Layout Editor, select the Buttons region of a table control. Then, drag a Button(Themed) control from the GEN Tab in the Toolbox and place it next to the Export button.

Step 2:  Select Tools, Properties... to display the Properties dialog. Select the newly added button control.

In the Display tab, set these properties:
