Init( column, listbox, editedfield ), VIRTUAL

Init

Initializes the EditClass object.

column

An integer constant, variable, EQUATE, or expression that contains the edited column number of the listbox.

listbox

An integer constant, variable, EQUATE, or expression that contains the control number of the edited LIST control--typically a BrowseClass object's LIST.

editedfield

The fully qualified label of the edited field--typically a field in the BrowseClass object's QUEUE.

The Init method initializes the EditClass object.

Implementation:

The BrowseClass.AskRecord method calls the Init method. The Init method creates the edit-in-place control, loads it with the selected list item's data, and alerts the appropriate edit-in-place navigation keys.

Example:

MyEditClass.Init(1,?MyList,StateQ:StateCode)    !initialize EditClass object

!program code here

MyEditClass.Kill                                !shut down EditClass object
