Related Forms

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
Related Forms functionality utilizes Data Dictionary information to automatically position child or parent forms based on the Initial Selected Alias of each form. Thus, if a Customer form is the currently active form, and the Customer Invoices form is made the currently active form, and Customer has Invoices, the invoices showing on the customer form will be automatically selected (in the case of views) or filtered (in the case of tables).

-- Hank Fay

A data dictionary is not a necessary component of this feature. If a framework can display related records as described above, it should be indicated in the Framework Feature Chart. -- Mike Yearwood
