$occmod reset

Author: juerg.fross@teamspirit.ch (jfro)

Hello all I would like to reset $occmod in an Uniface form. 1) The user updates some values in a multiple occurence 2) I check if he is allowed concerning the data already in the database. Depending the result of my checks I restore the old value. 3) As $occmod is still set I'd like to reset it - but it doesn't work (no error - but no changing of $occmod) Any recommondations? Thanks all! Jürg


  1. Have you tried to discard the occurence and use retrieve/x (after a creocc and entering the PK values) to reset your occurence? Greetings from super-hot Frankfurt/Germany

  2. Hello Uli Seems Uniface doesn't like when I do this in validate-trigger of the Entity. This provokes Uniface to die... Thanks! Jürg

  3. Hi Jörg, the brand new "don't violate the fragile active path" desaster, isn't it? perhaps you can use the macro command to start the userkey trigger and try retrieve/x from there (after the "normal" triggers have been processed)

  4. Hello Uli and all... Seems it works with reload/nolock. At least fist tests have been successful... Thanks a lot! Jürg

  5. Just curious - rather than coding all of this AFTER the event - why not just prevent the user from changing anything in the 1st place (if the user hasn't got the right access code)...
