Focus on wrong Page

Postby BRobinsonS » Mon Jul 27, 2015 5:57 pm

I have got caught a couple of time with this.
I have started typing on the visible screen only to realize that the changes are not taking place.
When I have checked another page, I have found I have overwritten a different field.

Is there a way of avoiding this ?

The last time I was working with my Membership application on the payments page and started to enter the year paid for and I noticed it wasn't taking the change.
When I switched to the main enter screen (name, etc) I had wiped out the member's last name.

Any suggestions?

I've never heard of anything like that happening before. Does this occur in NeoBook itself or in your running pub?

I need to clarify.
It 'appeared' that the field on the payments page I was trying to enter text in (year of membership) was 'highlighted' in a grid, but apparently it wasn't ready for entry.

I have tried to set focus on an object when I 'Goto' the payments page.
But if I go to the next record while on the payments page focus on the object would not be in effect.

I guess what I am asking if there is a way of keeping focus on the page I am on?

I'm still not exactly clear on what's going on in your pub. You should be able to control focus when using Text Entry Fields pretty well using FocusObject. The grid is more difficult because it requires the user to click on a cell. Maybe you can provide a small sample pub that shows the problem?

I just need to caution my users to make sure they click on the cell in the grid when making changes.
Of course, that goes for me too.

I can't see another way at this time.
