refresh form with new db contents

Hi all,

Sorry to bother you all once more...

I'm updating some user defined fields of the currently displayed form as a response to a button-click and I would like the screen to reflect those changes.

According to the help file, this should be possible using form.update, but nothing happens.

When I query the form, the old data is still there and the old data is displayed as well. When I query the di-object the new data is there (after I did an oSboQuotation.update). when I close the form and re-open it, the new data is displayed

btw: I'm accessing the udf-form through

getFormBytypeandCount(-masterform.type, masterform.typecount) and I really appear to get the right form, so that is not the problem

Any ideas?

Thanks once more,

    Form.Update updates the UI Items properties on the form and <b>not the data</b> (works for item Enabled/Visible/location).

    Data requery is not exposed until SAP Business One version 2004(6.7).

    until then - data requery should be done in your code(retrieving the data from DB and load it to the UI)

      Thanks Yaniv,

      So form.update is more of a repaint than a requery. Not exactly what I hoped for, but okay that's the way it is...
