Hi Tony, I want to ask your advice.

How do you handle various settings for reports, screens etc. I very often have to determine what is shown in the reports, screens, etc. For example the date or period from until the date or period to. I could make this with hard coding in the controller script or the class file. But this wouldn't be very convenient.

My current solution would be that I create a table with various dummies, where I could insert the needed values.

Example structure for such a table:

description (var 255)
field_label_1 (var 50)
field_var_1 (var 50)
...
field_label_11 (var 50)
field_int_1 (int 10)
...

Would this be practicable or do you have a better solution?

Take a look at A flexible method of storing control data. I use this method quite a lot in my main ERP application, so I know how useful it is.

Thank you. It is exactly what I was looking for. I will try to implement it in my application.
