Field Above or Below Child Grid

  • 13 January 2022

I have a custom screen that has a parent/child standard editing form similar to sales orders in how it looks.

Under the child grid or above it, I'd like to put a control that is bound to the same table/field as the child grid.

It works to show the initial record's value from the child grid, but as I select different rows in the child grid it doesn't refresh with the proper values.  It always shows/edits the first value from the grid.


Is there any way to get the control to show the right value from the grid and work like this?

I realize I can put in the edit mode for the grid, but for ease of use this one field (multi-line HTML Editor) really needs to just allow the user to click on the row and edit the value easily.


Edit:  Sorry this somehow posted to distribution.  Should have been in Customizations but I can’t figure out how to move it!

Hi @JEFSMI   I hope that grid field (above/below) is only for display purpose, if yes, you can write RowSelecting event, and fetch the Row current record values and assign it to the above/below grid field.

Also, make sure that in .aspx page, CHILD GRID should have the “SyncPosition = True” property declared.
