How to add record navigation buttons to a form in FOEX

Record navigation buttons are really helpful when you need to browse between entries, such as orders or inventory, within your FOEX application. 

To achieve this I’ll use a screen from one of our new demos to highlight how it can be easily done. In the image below you see a screen showing the customer order information.

This looks ok, but to browse through different customer orders I first need to close this window and then click on another entry to view that order’s details. There must be a faster way to do this!

With FOEX you can easily add record navigation buttons to your form by following this steps:

1. In the Page Designer go to your form region (in my case Order and Items)

2. Click on Attributes and then go to the Order by section

3. Add a valid clause, such as the one I used for this example order by ID ASC

Now the buttons should be added to your form. The end result will look like the one you see below:

This is an easy to implement solution for when you need to enable record navigation in a form within your application. You don’t need to add any extra code because this is handled by the FOEX Plugin Framework.
