Hi,

It would be nice if the system could automatically create the correct column settings for those columns with special meaning within in the system.

For example if a table has created_date, created_user, revised_date, or revised_user, the defaults would be applied to the column. Particularily the nosearch, noedit, and auto update options.

This would save a bunch of click when setting up new tables.

Cheers,


Kyle Brost

I cannot guarantee that you will use exactly the same field names as those, so I don't default any properties based on field names.

When I create new tables containing those fields I use my database admin tool (usually phpMyAdmin) to run script radicore\dict\sql\update_created_date.sql which sets these properties automatically.

That's a helpful script!

But... Don't you have the name the fields exactly as you for the framework to do the work? I can't change created_user to created_uid.

You can call the fields whatever you like. It's the properties that you give the field that tells the framework what to do with it, not the name.
