While the Pre-Defined buttons are useful, they will not satisfy all your customization needs. You will need more elaborate, multi-step scripts that are executed when a user clicks a button on a form.
This example creates a button that saves the current record, puts the form into Enter mode for entering a new record, sets the Bill_Country field default value to "United States," and then gives focus to the Firstname field, where the user can continue entering data for the new record.

Typically, scripting in Alpha Anywhere would require knowledge of its programming language Xbasic. However, with Action Scripting, you can program using logical steps or actions, rather than by writing code, reducing the need to learn Xbasic.
In this lesson, you learn about creating Action Scripts and using them to automate and customize your database application.
