Cool Input field on Type 3 Form Header
Baan: iBaanERP 5.0b
C/S: None/Unknown

I have created a type-3 form with a form field (input type) in the header, into which I would like users to be able to enter a date, which can then be used to perform table updates via an external function in the session's 4GL program script.

The function has been created and needs the value of the variable, as entered by the user. However, although the input field is declared as an external variable in the script, whatever value is entered into the field is ignored and does not get read into the program - therefore a zero date is passed to the function. Debugging the script shows that the 'when.field.changes' and 'check.input' field sections are not executed.

Any ideas as to a resolution, anyone?
