7.91.2 MTHROUTINE Examples

You can define a user-defined method that instructs a form to fetch details from a file:

MTHROUTINE Name(GetInfo) Help('This method gets the details of the employee.')

    FETCH Fields(#detflds) From_File(pslmst) With_Key(#empno)


An owner form can now instruct the form to perform this action by invoking the method:

INVOKE #frmDetail.GetInfo

For an example of how to pass values to a method routine, see 7.33.3 DEFINE_MAP in MTHROUTINE.
