Show Object(s)

Description

The Show Object(s) action reveals objects previously hidden in a window. This action is contextually useful in order to reveal pertinent objects (as dictated through user interaction). You can see this action in use throughout Alpha Anywhere, including the Script Genie, as Alpha will often reveal entry fields depending on the choices you made previously.

Procedure 

  1. Make a selection in the Show object(s) in which window? field. This field will be grayed out unless this action is based on a Form or Browse. The choices are:

    • "Current Form or Browse Window".

    • "Another Form or Browse Window".

  2. If you selected "Another Form or Browse Window", in the Window Name field select either:

    • "Forms"

    • "Browses"

  3. Select one of the listed forms or browses.

  4. Click Add Object to List to display a list of available object on the form or browse. Select the object and click OK to add it to the list of objects to show.

  5. Select an object in the Object Names list and click Remove Object from List if you do not wish to show it.

  6. Click Next >.

  7. Optionally modify the comment that describes the action.

  8. Click Finish.
