Export Form: Browsing with focus in Model Name should not replace Entities entry

Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

Assume we want to export all entities for a datamodel. We enter the All-Wildcard in the entities field and TAB to the Model Name field. There we use the browse feature to determine which Model wewant to download. Leaving the selection will set the selected Model Name, but unfortunately the Entities field as well. Think this is a bit counterintuitive.

  1. Your observation is correct: the Export form is not in sync with the fact that model as concept has been deprecated in the IDE; there’s only modeled entities in the Uniface 10 IDE (still requiring a syntax of string.string). Workaround: type the (deprecated) model name (or a profile) in the Model Name field rather than selecting it from the list.
