View Full Version : Data Control Object
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but since it deals with HTML and RPG programming, I thought I'd try here first. Is there a method of programming a VB type data control object in RPG IV? What I'd like to do is present the user with a method to retreive a specific customer from our AS/400 database either by typing the customer number, name, or select from a drop-down box. Once the customer is selected, the cust number, name, and full address should appear on the form. Thanks for any assistance.

In native AS/400 parlance, you would use the Screen Design Aid (SDA) utility to build screens that displayed the desired fields at the desired times. Your RPG program would then handle the logic. Unless I'm completely misunderstanding your question, the short answer is "Yes", but the terminology and methodology is different. Dave

What I'm attempting to do is develop a web page using the CGI techniques in Bradley Stone's E-RPG book. I see how to recreate most VB type objects such as text boxes and checklists, but nothing refers to the VB type data control. I could probably program the drop down list to present the user with all customers in the master using a loop, but I was wondering if the file could be directly linked with an object(s) on the HTML form. For example, when the user selected a particular customer or typed in the customer number, the customer address and other pertinent info should appear in other text boxes on the form when the box loses focus.
