RE: set field value using LS exiting Andre Guirard 13.Mar.06 06:13 PM Lotus Notes Notes Client 6.0.2 CF2Windows 2000
Yes, as has been discussed in this forum quite recently if you bothered to search, clicking the action bar does not remove focus from the field and therefore the Exiting event doesn't fire.
What's the point of having an editable field that the user can't edit because anything they put in there gets overwritten when they exit the field? Why not just make it a computed field? At least that way they don't waste their time typing something the application will ignore.
And in case you were going to tell me that they weren't going to enter that field unless they wanted to put that value in it, I remind you there are users who can't navigate with a mouse, and have to tab thru all the fields to get from place to place on the form or even to find out what all the fields are.
