Define field value based on last value of a table on a database

QuestionsDefine field value based on last value of a table on a database
Andre asked 7 years ago


I have a table where it has a sequential number used for requests (like 100100, 100101, 100102, 100103 and so forth). That's the field request number. I would like to set the request_number field/column of the grid based on the last entry of the table. Say the last entry is 100103, when the user add a new entry (row) the request_number field/column would be automatically set to 100104.

Default values are set on client side once grid loaded, so you probably need to set this value on server side.
You can use on_insert event and write code to set this seq number when insert is made.

Custom events feature is currently part of licensed version.
