Hi,

I'm trying to use the AccuTerm GUI for a program. I've got a grid control and one of the fields has a dropdown list. When I start a new row I want to set a default value to the dropdown list column. Is there any way to do that?

I've looked for a default dropdown property but didn't find one. I thought that maybe I could manually load the property when a new row is added. There doesn't seem to be an event fired when a new row is started.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Well, there is a GPDEFVAL property which sets the default value of the control. What this means in the context of a grid is somewhat uncertain, as the "value" of the control is the whole grid. Maybe you could use this property with the ATSETPROP subroutine, with a non-zero column value to set the default value of drop-down column (cell).

My approach would be to activate the GEACTIVATEROW event. In the event handler, check whether the activated row is a new row, and if so, set default cell values.

HTH,

Brian
