As I promissed in the webex session - I'm attaching a sample of using the LinkedBtn object.

Please notice that this object isn't available inside a matrix column (cell) for version 6.2-6.5

While creating your new form - you can add a linked button item.

'Adding link button code sample

Set Itm = Frm.Items.Add("Link1", it_LINKED_BUTTON)

        'Allocating the new item in reference to other items on the form

Itm.Top = Frm.Items("EditTxt1").Top

Itm.Left = Frm.Items("EditTxt1").Left + Frm.Items("EditTxt1").Width + 5

        'Connecting the linked button to the relevant field on the form

Itm.LinkTo = "EditTxt1"

Please tell me if you need more help.

Hi Miki,

I tried the above, but does not work. I am using 6.5 and VB. Any idea why?

The yellow arrow does not appear in my form.

Luan,

the above example seems to be incomplete.

You to also need set the Object you want to link to by using the LinkedObject property.

The sample below should work properly.

Answer: Use Link Button Item (orange arrow).

  Set Itm = Frm.Items.Add("Link1", it_LINKED_BUTTON)

Itm.LinkTo = "EditTxt1"

        Set linkBtn = Itm.Specific

        linkBtn.LinkedObject = lf_BusinessPartner

Hi Jorge,

You can only create LinkedBtns linked with B1 objects, no way to link them with a UDO or a simple UserTable.
