Tip of the week!

July 11th, 2009 by Venkat

Hi folks,

Have you ever faced any situation where you have to hide 20+ fileds on a forms on user action.?

The thing with Change Field action is you can’t group fields like Push or set fields, so most of us start a AL with adding 20+ Change filed actions.  This is tiresome and time taking.

Next time you have to do this, try to edit the def file directly and import it back.

It’s simple and easy. Try it, you will love it.

Till next post, Njoy



1. you need to know what you are doing with def file :)

2. Its easy for me because, I use a range of fields for development and remember what each field ID is.

3. I have encountered many errors in the start but not anymore.
