4.15.17 Action EX, F3 or F12 (Exit)

This action is used in both the screen and report design facilities.

When an action code of EX (or function key F3 or F12) is used the following events occur:

                 ........................................

                 :         Exit from Painter            :

                 :  Use cursor to make a selection      :

                 :   Exit and update design             :

                 :   Exit and do NOT update design      :

                 :   Ignore Exit, Continue designing    :

                 :   Restart from initial design        :

                 : Fnn=Help Fnn=Messages Fnn=Cancel     :

                 :......................................:

     Move the screen cursor onto the same line as the option that you wish to use and then press the enter key.

The RDML screen commands DISPLAY and REQUEST and the DEF_XXXXX report definition commands allow the nomination of specific row and column numbers to position fields. Once the screen or report design facility has been used the associated DISPLAY, REQUEST or DEF_XXXXXX commands will be automatically re-written to include the desired row and column numbers.

Subsequently the specific row and column numbers can be amended using the screen or report design facilities again or by direct amendment of the DISPLAY, REQUEST or DEF_XXXXXX commands in the RDML program. Refer to the Technical Reference Guide for more details of the DISPLAY, REQUEST and DEF_XXXXX report commands.

Remember that the RDML program is completely self contained. All program logic and screen/report designs are stored in the RDML program only.
