Manage included fields (field lists) as in Uniface V7.
If the Field List property
of a component entity is set to
$V7_INCLUDE_FIELDS assignment file setting causes Uniface to manage the fields
as in V7, which is, at run time, to automatically include in the field list the following:
- Foreign key fields
- Fields for which the ‘consecutive rule’
Given two included fields, X and Y (automatically included because they are referenced in ProcScript or painted on the component), if there are fewer than 5 other fields between X and Y that would not normally be included, they are included as well. Otherwise they are excluded, which is the default behavior in Uniface V8.
You must explicitly include the $V7_INCLUDE_FIELDS setting in your assignment file for it to take effect. If you omit it or set it to 0, the default V8 functionality applies.
The $V7_INCLUDE_FIELDS setting is meaningful only in the Uniface Development Environment. It has no effect in the Uniface runtime environment.
