Modifying dialog behavior
Posted 07 December 2002 - 21:44
My question is this. I would like to make an exact copy of
SdShowDlgEdit3. I have 2 different dialogs to create and I'd like to use SdShowDlgEdit3 as the base. I need to make a copy because the behaviors are different in the 2 dialogs that I need to create. Can't I copy the dialog, give it a new name and then modify the behavior as I want?

Would it be easier to set conditions on the behaviour on that dialog so that different controls and text only work for certain conditions?

I've got 2 dialogs boxes and I'd like to use SdShowDlgEdit3 (thru Design User Interface) for both dialogs.
The first is username
Its required that Fields 2 and 3 do not echo back what the user types. This can be achieved by modifying the dialog layout and the behavior or field 2 and three.
The second dialog is DSN
In this instance I only need Field three to not echo back what the user types.
Also, the layout for each of these dialog box need to be slightly different.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by modifying the conditions. Do I do that through Design User Interface feature?

This means that you can have one dialog, and have different functionality for different situations.

I'll give it a try. I think I have a better understanding now.
