DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for November 2014

Looking Up a Value From Within a Macro

While a macro is running, is it possible to lookup a value from another table? Yes, this can be done, but it is not obvious how. Here's what you have to do:

On your form, create a lookup control that does the lookup. For example, you might create a lookup control that saves the value retrieved into @var(56).

Then, in your macro, when it's time to do the lookup, do an OPTION | RECALC. @var(56) will be set to the lookup value.

Top rated! I needed a solid database application development tool for mobile devices. I chose DroidDB for Android OS because it provided a way to get a strong product to market quickly. DroidDB is relational, gives me control over form layout, handles macros, and supports events. It works on all Android versions I have tried and is a great companion product to SYWARE’s VisualCE.
