find()

Set the foundset in find mode. (Start a find request), use the "search" function to perform/exit the find.

Before going into find mode, all unsaved records will be saved in the database.
If this fails (due to validation failures or sql errors) or is not allowed (autosave off), the foundset will not go into find mode.
Make sure the operator and the data (value) are part of the string passed to dataprovider (included inside a pair of quotation marks).
Note: always make sure to check the result of the find() method.

When in find mode, columns can be assigned string expressions (including operators) that are evaluated as:
General:
      c1||c2    (condition1 or condition2)
      c|format  (apply format on condition like 'x|dd-MM-yyyy')
      !c        (not condition)
      #c        (modify condition, depends on column type)
      ^         (is null)
      ^=        (is null or empty)
      <x     (less than value x)
      >x     (greater than value x)
      <=x    (less than or equals value x)
      >=x    (greater than or equals value x)
      x...y     (between values x and y, including values)
      x         (equals value x)

 Number fields:
      =x       (equals value x)
      ^=       (is null or zero)

 Date fields:
      #c       (equals value x, entire day)
      now      (equals now, date and or time)
      //       (equals today)
      today    (equals today)

 Text fields:
      #c	        (case insensitive condition)
      = x      (equals a space and 'x')
      ^=       (is null or empty)
      %x%      (contains 'x')
      %x_y%    (contains 'x' followed by any char and 'y')
      \%      (contains char '%')
      \_      (contains char '_')

Related columns can be assigned, they will result in related searches.
For example, "employees_to_department.location_id = headoffice" finds all employees in the specified location).

Searching on related aggregates is supported.
For example, "orders_to_details.total_amount = '>1000'" finds all orders with total order details amount more than 1000.

Arrays can be used for searching a number of values, this will result in an 'IN' condition that will be used in the search.
The values are not restricted to strings but can be any type that matches the column type.
For example, "record.department_id = [1, 33, 99]"

Returns

Boolean

	columnNumberDataProvider = '>' + utils.numberFormat(anumber, '####.00');
	columnDateDataProvider = '31-12-2010|dd-MM-yyyy'
	foundset.search()
}

focusField(fieldName, skipReadonly)

Sets focus to a field specified by its name.
If the second parameter is set to true, then readonly fields will be skipped

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient

Sample

//to reload all last (related) records again, if for example after a search in related tabpanel
controller.loadRecords();

loadRecords(foundset)

Loads a (related) foundset into the form.
The form will no longer share the default foundset with forms of the same datasource, use loadAllRecords to restore the default foundset.

This will really update the foundset instance itself of the form, so now existing foundset is altered just the new foundset is shown.
This is different then doing foundset.loadRecords(foundset) because that just alters the current foundset and doesn't do anything with the foundset
that is given.

When the form uses a seperate foundset, foundset filter params are copied over from the source foundset and are merged with the existing filters.

Parameters

JSFoundSet
foundset

Returns

Boolean

Supported Clients

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient

UUID
UUIDpk

loadRecords(queryString)

Loads records into form foundset based on a query (also known as 'Form by query'). The query must be a valid sql select.
If the foundset is related this function is not allowed.
Tries to preserve selection based on primary key, otherwise first record is selected.

see foundset.loadRecords(QBSelect).

When possible, the foundset will be loaded with the given query.
This is not always possible because the foundset needs to manipulate the query when adding conditions and joins.
In that case the query will be wrapped: select pk from tab where pk = (queryString)
The result is the same, except for the ordering in the queryString which will be ignored.

The query will be wrapped when one of the following is true:
<ul>
<li>you have no order-by clause</li>
<li>you have no from keyword</li>
<li>your query is not fully qualified on the main table</li>
<li>you have a group-by, having, join or union keyword</li>

Tries to preserve selection based on primary key, otherwise first record is selected.

see foundset.loadRecords(QBSelect).

When possible, the foundset will be loaded with the given query.
This is not always possible because the foundset needs to manipulate the query when adding conditions and joins.
In that case the query will be wrapped: select pk from tab where pk = (queryString)
The result is the same, except for the ordering in the queryString which will be ignored.

The query will be wrapped when one of the following is true:
<ul>
<li>you have no order-by clause</li>
<li>you have no from keyword</li>
<li>your query is not fully qualified on the main table</li>
<li>you have a group-by, having, join or union keyword</li>
</ul>

Parameters

String
queryString
to load
Array
queryArgumentsArray
the arguments to replace the questions marks in the queryString

Boolean
