i want to use the auto increment in the database for a code field.
It is the primary key in the table.

How can I create this auto increment ? it is a property for the field ?
I have to do it in code ?

Thank you for your help

    You can link it to a Number Series... however, you have to anyways write some code to generate the new number.

    Autoincrement property can be used only for numeric type fields (integer, biginteger)
    If you use code type field then you have to do some development (using no. series or not)
    Do you really require an alphanumeric pk? Why do you use code type?

    you're right. I will use an integer primary key.
    What is the property to be used for autoincrement?

    Can you explain please?
