Data Binding Question from a New User

Startbeitrag von Simon am 09.02.2015 20:41


I am new to WD and wondered how the following scenario is best handled. I have the Customer ID stored on an Invoice. I would like to data-bind a control to this ID but I do not want to see the actual ID displayed in the control instead I want the customer name and account number to show. In Visual FoxPro I built my own data-binding routine that handled this so that only the Customer Name & Account No. showed on the form.

I have been looking through the documentation but have not found what I am looking for nor do I know what this is called in WinDev.



Hi Simon,

This is going to sound boring, but I'd suggest that you consult the WD Tutorial. It'll take you through the process of building windows really quite quickly but it also teaches the whys and wherefores of WD terminology along the way. A couple of hours spent with the tutorial will get you to Lesson 2.4 which starts to answer your questions and as long as you stick with it, you'll understand how it's all arrived at in a logical progression.

Don't know if you have it, but you can find a whole host of documentation here:

I would also suggest that you examine some of the many examples supplied with WD.
