move cursor to a previous item [message #411592] Sun, 05 July 2009 19:36 Go to next message

How can I move a cursor without a go_item? I have a when-validate item condition for a field. If the user must go back to an earlier sequence item to change it if conditions are not met in following items based on the when-validate-item, how can I get the cursor to go back to the earlier sequence item within the when-validate item code?

Ex:[in the when-validate-item of a field]
IF :block.field2 NOT IN ('A','B','C')
AND :block.field_date IS NOT NULL
AND :block.field1 IS NULL THEN
MESSAGE('Must update field1 when field_date is not blank');

many thanks

Populate a 'control' block item with the name of the item to which you wish to navigate. Create a timer, and in that timer display your message and then do a 'go_item' to the item whose name you have stored in the 'control block item.
