Hi. Is it possible to replace a system generated message "Do you want to save the changes you have made?" with a customized one in order to force users to press the commit button that we made with customized codes? Pre-commit trigger seems to be a place to identify whether this message pops up and "yes" is selected.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Why? If the user doesn't want to save their changes a stronger message probably won't help.

User wants to save the changes that's why he presses "Yes" on the system generated message. Here is the scenario:
1. user makes some changes on the form.
2. he forgets to press our customized "Commit Record" button.
3. he tries to query for another record.
4. before query is executed, the system message pops up saying "want to save the changes?".
5. he presses "Yes" because he wants to save.
This action 2) skipps all the customized codes written under the "Commit Record" button, which is a MUST step on this form.

Dear Sarah,

I Think,it is not a good way to write codes in a button that should be executed while saving a record. If you are doing so, you have to suppress the shortcut key for save and many more coding should be needed.

There is a better way i think.

Write those essential codes in KEY-COMMIT Trigger and in the button, just write
do_key('commit_form');


I think it will work for you.

Regards
Sasi...
