4GL form sections
Only the form.all section is relevant to dynamic forms. For dynamic forms, use the group sections instead.
You use form sections to program actions that you want to be executed when forms are activated or ended. Form sections consist of a main section and a subsection. The main section specifies the particular form(s) for which the actions are to be executed. The subsections specify when the actions must be executed – for example, when the user navigates to a form (before.form), or navigates away from a form (after.form).
The subsections associated with this section are executed for the specified form. The <form number> is only available for static forms and is the sequence number of the form, as defined in the session Forms when started from the session Sessions (ttadv2500m000).
The subsections associated with this section are executed for all forms of the session.
A subsection associated with this section is executed for all forms for which the particular subsection has not been programmed in a form.<form number> section.
The actions programmed in this subsection are executed the first time the specified form becomes current, immediately before the subsection before.form. You use this subsection to program the first action to be performed by the system – a first.set or first.view, for example.
The actions programmed in this subsection are executed each time the user navigates to the form.
The actions programmed in this subsection are executed each time the user navigates away from the form.
