Edit Box - DataClass Property

Reference to a repository field or fundamental product data class used to control data entry

Member of Edit Box (PRIM_EDIT)

Data Type - PRIM_DC - Data class base class


The DataClass property allows the default behavior of an edit to be overridden by the behavior of a repository data class.
By specifying a data class the edit will now follow the data entry rules for the field e.g. its type, length, decimal places etc.
Rather than applying a data class to an edit, it is easier to simply use the field directly from the repository.
