- Objects That Do Table Lookups
/documentation/pages/Ref/Desktop_Api/Layout/Object/Objects That Do Table Lookups.xml
It is quite common in database application design to present the user with a list of choices. Occasionally, a list is static and hard coded, but often the list is table driven. Sometimes, a list needs to change dynamically, depending on the value of another form object, selection text, or variable. Often the developer will make the list selections more user friendly by presenting an "alias" for an encoded field. This document explores how to develop these types of lists in Alpha Anywhere.
- Creating Conditional Table Lookups
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/DBF/Creating Conditional Table Lookups.xml
When one of several tables might supply the field's value, use a Conditional table lookup. Instead of choosing one lookup table, you complete the Table Conditions table, filling in the names of two or more tables along with a Conditional expression for each that determines which table is used for the lookup. The tables you use must have the same field names and types since there is only one field mapping.
