Filter without modification

EccEcc Member Posts: 3
I've built a tabular type form that has a table in its source and shows its contents. Than I added a textbox, set its sourceexpr to a global variable und added
    record.SETRANGE(Column, Filter);
to the OnValidate-Event of that textbox. Filtering works, but when the tablebox looses its focus, I get a message telling me that I cannot modify the forms source table. But i didn't change anything in the tablebox. When i put the same C/AL-Code in the OnPush-Event of a button, everything works _without_ that messagebox. How can i get rid of that message?

Thanks in advance!

    Put your code in the OnAfterValidate trigger, also call CurrForm.Update(FALSE) instead of FINDFIRST (it will fail if no records are found). E.g. if you have a form with sourcetable Customer, with variable NameFilter, you can use something like this:
    IF NameFilter = '' THEN
      SETFILTER(Name, NameFilter);
    You can also check the standard forms like 7002, to get an idea.
