These properties are used to describe a grid (or "subfile") item on a rich display.  Grids are described within the "items" array of the format they appear in.

Identification

"id": Sets the ID of the grid.

"record format name": Identifies the record format that is used to access this grid from server code.

"description": Describes the record format.

"field type": Determines the type of control that is used to render the element.

  • Possible choices: "grid"

"value": Sets the initialization value for the current element.

Subfile Settings

"display subfile": This property tells the system when to display grid records. It represents the SFLDSP keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"display control record": This property tells the system when to display the subfile control record. It represents the SFLDSPCTL keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"initialize subfile": This property tells the system to initialize all records within the subfile. It represents the SFLINZ keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"subfile records not active": This property can be used together with the "initialize subfile" property to initialize a subfile with no active records. It represents the SFLRNA keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"delete subfile': This property tells the system when to delete the subfile area. It represents the SFLDLT keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"clear subfile": This property tells the system when to clear all records from the subfile. It represents the SFLCLR keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"subfile size": This property represents the SFLSIZ keyword, which specifies the number of records that can be placed into the subfile.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"subfile end": This property is used to indicate that a subfile with a paging bar has loaded all of its records. It represents the SFLEND keyword.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"subfile next changed": This property is used to forces the user to correct program-detected typing errors in subfile records. The program can cause a record to be changed so that a get-next-changed operation must read the record again.

  • Possible choices: "true", "false"

"cursor record number": This property can be bound to a numeric field, which will return the relative record number of the record on which the cursor is located.

"cursor progression": This property determines the tab order for input elements within the subfile. It represents the SFLCSRPRG keyword.

"subfile return rrn": This property can be bound to a numeric field, which will return the relative record number of the top visible record within a grid. It represents the SFLSCROLL keyword.

"subfile changed": Specifies a response indicator that is set on if the input data within the subfile is modified.

Message Subfile Settings

"subfile message key": This property specifies a field that is used to select messages from a program message queue for display. Your program places a message reference key in this field. The property represents the SFLMSGKEY keyword on a subfile record format.

"subfile program message queue": This property specifies a field that contains the name of the program message queue used to build a message subfile. It represents the SFLPGMQ keyword on a subfile record format.
