    Default Design advice

    I have designed/built my first fully operational project, which is in final testing before going live. This is all based on dbf tables because of its close integration with the desktop systems in use & no sql experience.
    The main dbf has a number of field rules/record events set for conditionally populating of fields & other table lookups.
    Should I try to move the field rules/record events to xbasic functions on the UX's where possible?
    What is good practise.
    Thanks
    Terry

    I like everything in one place. I try to put all validation in the dialogValidate event.

    If you use the same code in several places, then consider using Xbasic Modules. Much more friendly when the app is live and you want a quick add or change.

    Probably because your question doesn't seem to be, nor necessarily need it be, version specific. I read it as a general design concept question.
    There can be only one.
