Hi Experts,

As you all know NAV 2009 won't update the Flowfields on Pages until you refresh the screen (Manually).

I was very exicted to see the Page Property "RefreshOnActivate" in NAV 2009 SP1, but it's not working for me. Does anybody checked this property? Is not working because NAV2009 SP1 is a CTP?

Does anybody know whether Microsoft is going to fix this?

    It does work - also on the CTP build

    Please look at examples in e.g. Customer and Item card

    Note that RefreshOnActivate does NOT trigger a refresh if you open a modal page and close it again, as you actually haven't left the first page.
    (I don't know whether this is the issue - just guessing)

    Hi Freddy,Troelsh:

    Thanks for your reply and sorry to respond you late.

    I am talking about the Flow Fields on Sales Documents / Purchase Documents. In Classic Version if you have a flowfield on Header (Ex: "Total Quantity" - To Display Total Quantity, "No. of Lines"-To Display Total No. of Lines), after adding the Sales Lines/Purchase Lines if you click on Header Form, system will update the flow fields but it's not happening in the RTC Version.

    Please let me know if i am missing any thing here..

    If you have not already found a solution for this issue, there is a work around solution for this. Hope this helps you:

    Write this code in onValidate() Trigger on a field you want to change its value.

    TESTFIELD("No.");// Where "No." is primary field or any field that always has a value

    I hope this helps you.
