- Open Another Database
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Platform/Xbasic Action Scripting/Database/Open Another Database.xml
The Open Another Database action closes the current database and opens another. You can specify the database to open ahead of time, or prompt the user at run-time.
- Form Open Options
/documentation/pages/Desktop/Reference/Design/View/Form/Form Open Options.xml
There are two ways to specify the name of a form or browse layout. These are:
- a5queueing::queue Open Method
Open a queue given a connection string
- Dial Telephone Open SMS client
Dial a telephone number or open the SMS client application to send a SMS message.
- Object Names
An object name must be alphanumeric, can contain ?_', must start with a letter, and must be unique in its container. For example, if a form has two buttons, the buttons must have different names. But if you have two different forms, the buttons on each form can have the same name. Alpha Anywhere will automatically fix object names that break these rules. For example if you open two copies of the Customer form, the objects will be named Customer and CustomerN (where N is an additional character that makes the name unique, e.g. Customer1).
- Toolbar::open Function
Opens and returns a pointer to a toolbar.
- Object Addresses
Each object has an address that you use to manipulate the object. An object address is much like a real address. Just as "36 Bigelow St., Cambridge, MA02139" uniquely identifies someone's home, an object address uniquely identifies an object.
System objects are top-level objects. They can be addressed directly by just specifying the object name. You can optionally prefix the object name with a colon to avoid any potential ambiguity if a user created object has the same name as a system object.
