Hello

Am perplexed with this, I created a new subsystem, and have everything working.

Then I added a text field to my table, and wanted a field for updating this on the update screens.

the update screen does show me an input box for this, but it is one long line, instead of a multi line text input field.

I compared my detail screen with one in workflow and cant see any difference, yet, the update screen in workflow shows a multiline input field whereas mine does not.

could someone please point where I could be going wrong.

thanks
Hari

A text field will not be displayed as a multi-line text box unless you tell the framework to do so. Take a look at http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/dict_column(u pd).html for the field called CONTROL and the option of "Multi-Line Text Box". You must also specify the number of ROWS and COLUMNS that you want displayed. Don't forget that after changing the entry in the data dictionary you must export the details to your PHP script before the changes will take effect.

I hope this helps.
