Using the Professional Services Library: Edit
The Edit function in the Professional Services Library allows the user, using the built-in OpenURI MetaScript function, to easily navigate within Virtual Ticket without the need to remember OpenURI syntax, and opens the selected record in the editing mode.
Note: This solution is optimized for Virtual Ticket Developer.
If you are using Workgroups DaVinci and are planning to use a Toolbox snippet not marked as DaVinci-compatible, please check with Support for possible compatibility issues before using.
The following script demonstrates the usage of Edit in the Professional Services Library:
//@version "2.0" //@include "database:PS.js" // Place inside a button's "Click Action" MetaScript // Options include id, type, new_window, form, group, parameters // Simple example - This will open the chosen Request in edit mode in a new Virtual Ticket browser PS.Edit( Field( 'Request_Number' ), "Requests" ); // More complex example - This will open the chosen Request in edit mode in the same Virtual Ticket browser, and will use the "Request Entry" form PS.Edit( Field( 'Request_Number' ), "Requests", "no", "Request Entry" );
