Hi Everyone...

I have two text items on my data block.When i leave 1st text and entering second one , then i have to check certain condition on second.. & i have global code that if the 2nd field is null then some value is assigned.

I used PRE-TEXT-ITEM .........but getting an error of restricted procedure for go_item(field name).Even i used KEY-NEXT-ITEM on first field but not working....so which trigger i'll use to validate(or to check) the 2nd field

What do you want to do exactly?
Do you want to go to some other item when the condition met?
Try to write your code in when-new-item-instance of second item.

This is a scenario:
- a form is opened, all items are empty
- you enter something into the first item
- then you navigate out of it and want to check something on the second.

How and why? The second item is empty, isn't it? Does it have an initial value? Do you populate it with something in the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger, for example? If not, how can you validate an empty item? It is ... well, empty. Shouldn't you validate the second item after navigating out of it? If so, do that in the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM trigger.

Littlefoot,
If I'm not wrong, OP says there is some code, which initializes the second item.

Right; I translated it as "I have a global variable and may use it if the second item is left empty". It seems that I was wrong.

Why do you need to do a 'go_item' when you are already 'moving' to the field?

Please post your code and use 'code' tags.
