Retreive values from Business One screen


Hey All,

Can any experts give me some feedback on the best methods for retreiving from values from the Business One client screen through the UI? I am looking for best practices and methods when getting this information in your code.

I am have tried a few different ways and when we are dealing with large numbers of line items they all seem slow. I normally just get the com object and retrieve the property for the value.

I do not always freeze the screen when doing this. Should I? I have seen some postings where people have said this is faster which doesn't make sense to me.

Also I have seen examples where people use the datasources to retreive info. How does this work if the user has changed the value on the screen? Does the dbdatasource still contain the most recent value?

Any feedback or examples would be greatly appreciated.
