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!
FOEX Form without record navigation buttons
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:
