IntroductionThis covers the three main mailing lists for the GNU Enterprise (http://www.gnuenterprise.org) project, plus the #gnuenterprise IRC channel.

People: James Thompson
It was asked how to make a master-detail report, that has to have a sequence in a PRE-INSERT trigger (how to fill a field of a block with a sequence). James Thompson (jamest) offered using "field level function: <trigger name="trig2" type="PRE-INSERT"><![CDATA[ntryschool_contact_id.autofillBySequence('seq_school_contact_id')]]></trigger>" - to attach it to a <block>. That worked.
2. Dropdown triggers
14 Jan 2004 Archive Link: "[IRC] 14 Jan 2004"
People: James Thompson, Jason Cater
It was asked what trigger was activated, when user selected something from dropdown list, but still haven't left the entry (so that changes could be made on the form according to the value he/she selected). The problem was that although a field did have post-change trigger, an entry did not. James Thompson (jamest) thought "its due to the internal edit mode in the input handlers" . Jason Cater (jcater) thought "it has more to do w/wx's funky handling of combos but the internal edit mode may not allow it either" . James offered adding "self._field.setValue(event.text) in the replaceText() of the dropdown handler" . It worked. The possible problem here could be adding an event to the <entry> "if you have > 1 entry on a form, you're changing the value of the field but tying the value change to the entry. So if you forget to add that trigger to every entry pointing to that field then you have a "bad thing", so I really thing the value change trigger should fire on the field and dropdowns should change their field values upon new selection" .
On the following day, James commited a code, but another problem appeared - seemed like the dropdown was getting a "draw yourself please" command from the form with each focus change.
