Item-form refresh event

Hi there

I?m looking for an easy way to find out when the Item form will be refreshed with a different Item.

I worked out a solution trapping the menu keys NextRecord,PreviousRecord and so on. This works but it does not work when the user goes for find functionality like * in the item textbox to select an item. I tried to catch the Item-Textbox events but this does not lead to a solution.

Does anyone have a tip how I can get easely to be informed by SDK when the item form is refreshed with a different item?

    what about catching the Lost_Focus event of ItemCode (edittext)?

    You could remember the old ItemCode on the GotFocus event and compare it to the Itemcode you read out when you loose focus.

    • Hi Lutz

      Thank you for your advise. I realised then a solution using the Lost_Focus display of ItemCode-EditText-Control in combination with the Next/Previous/First/Last-MenuKeys.

      But anyhow, it would be nice to have a FormEvent telling us when a Form is completely refreshed with new data. Perhaps in 8.0
