Modifing data


what is the recommended way to modify data in a form. I know two ways:

- modifing the data in the form object

- modifing the data in the datasource

it looks like modifing data in the datasource is the prefered way.

Hi Christian,

You can't modify system fields/matrixes by their datasources, SBO protects this (You'll get an exception: Operation not permitted)

You can modify them by the Form.Items collection, but this is kind of slow.

Preferred chaning

- All SBO items (BusinessPartners, Items etc) by there objects

- Documents (Invoices etc) by there objects

- All <i>user</i> fields (buttons, textfields, matrixes etc) by user datasources...

Note that by changing data by objects, the data is instantly modified

Hope it helps,
