Trapping Events


I am currently reading the contents of a matrix and updating certain cells (sbo 6.5). I am currently doing this by trapping the lost_focus event, this is not very efficient as the system seems to generate lots of lost_focus events. I have tried using the validate event instead, which only occurs once when you leave a field. The problem I have is that if I update another field in the matrix the system seems to get stuck in a loop as it keeps on generating validate events

Can anyone give me any ideas please ?

Regards Andy

    As well as checking the EventType is a validate event, are you also checking that you only run your code when the ColUID matches the one you want to trigger your code from?

      Hi Phil

      Just made a bit of a break though, I am now filling the matrix via a user data source and that seems alot better, SAP doesn't seem to be firing off any events after I update my totals

      Not sure if it will help you

      Regards Andy
