DateTime - ShowPrompter Property

Show or hide the prompter

Member of DateTime (PRIM_EVDT)

Data Type - Boolean


The ShowPrompter property controls the appearance of the prompter button for the field.
The prompters button can be used in 2 ways.
The first is to define a Prompter Visualization within the repository field definition. This links a user defined prompter form to the field definition making it available whenever the field is used on a component.
The second is to show the prompter button and then respond to the the PrompterXxx events as required. This is a more flexible alternative allowing the prompt button to be used as en embedded button.
ShowPrompter requires that the ComponentVersion property of the field definition be set to 1.


In this example, the prompter button in a Search field is used as the trigger to filter the contents of a list.
Define_Com Class(#Search.Visual) Name(#Search) ... ShowPrompter(True) ComponentVersion(1) ...
Evtroutine Handling(#Search.PrompterActivate)
   Selectlist Named(#List)
      #List.CurrentItem.Visible := (#CustomerName.Contains(#Search) *or (#Search = ""))
