Accept blanks in a table field

RoelofRoelof Member Posts: 377
Is there a way to accept a blank in a table field?
I have created a setup table and one of the fields is a field what is being used for a filler as a Text(1).
This filler can be anything and needs to include a blank.

Thanks.

    The easyest way to handle this is to use space as a filler if the field is the empty string. If no filler is a valid option too, this solution is not feasible. In that case you need to add code on the form. In the control's triggers add code like this
    Filler - OnAfterInput(VAR Text : Text[1024];)
    IsSpace := Text = ' ';
    
    Filler - OnValidate()
    IF IsSpace THEN
      Filler := ' ';
    
    Filler is the table field, IsSpace is a global variable of type Boolean

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    Yes, this is what I had in mind if it there wasn't some kind of a field option doing this.
    The only concern is how to do it in RTC. But after some testing I noticed that RTC doesn't have that problem.

    Thanks.
