    Here are some basic usage concepts that are important to understand.

    Any of the forms you initially see across the top of a page, in a SynApp2 generated application, are SEARCH forms. They are NOT data entry forms.

    Begin working by leaving ALL OF THE FIELDS BLANK and click the Search icon (the magnifying glass)

    OR

    If you KNOW that the table is empty, or you KNOW that a record is NOT in the table, click the Add icon (the green plus) and an INPUT form will appear. Use THAT form to enter values for a new record.

    Once you've added a record, you can subsequently SELECT it.

    SELECT a record by clicking on the row in the select table (it will highlight) and then click the Select icon (the check mark). This will allow you to advance to the next step. Or, once a record is highlighted, you can click the Edit icon (the pencil), or the Delete icon (the red minus).

    Work forms from the upper left of the page and then downward - not across.

    Once you have some data in your tables, you can enter (partial or complete) values into the search forms, to filter records and reduce the number of records displayed in the corresponding selection table. Any field values entered on search forms are logically AND'ed using the LIKE operator %value% for all fields. If you enter something that does not exist, then the search query becomes over-constrained and no records are returned.

    So, initially, please leave the search form fields blank, until you get some data built up in your tables and you have a better feel for how the forms work.

    The Close icon (the red X), closes a tabular Select form and rolls back to a prior Search form.

    If there is more than one search form across the top of the page, the additional form or forms are only needed when you are about to Add (insert) a record into the 'basis table' - that is, the table that is the primary focus of the page and has the same name as the highlighted navigation tab you selected to get to the page.

    The tabular select form for the basis table will NOT have a Select icon (green check mark). It doesn't need one. After highlighting a row, use the Add, Edit, or Delete icon.

    Also, when the basis table has more than one foreign key, and there are additional Search forms across and down the page, use those forms to find and select a related record, or records. Under these circumstances the Add icon (green plus) will remain inactive (grayed) until you have selected a record for each key.

    Use the Close icon, to roll up, or click a page navigation tab.

    The sequence of table navigation and record selection is imposed by the structure of your database.

  2. That is most informative.
    Thanks Richard.

    There is a step-by step walk through available on the SynApp2 documentation page.
