Keep a dataset in dsInsert/dsEdit mode after validation fails (Views: 100)


Problem/Question/Abstract:

Keep a dataset in dsInsert/dsEdit mode after validation fails

Answer:

If you want to keep a dataset in dsInsert/dsEdit mode after a validation fails, but do not want to loose your input, use Abort in the BeforePost() event.

(If you would use Dataset.Cancel, you'd loose the input and return to browse mode.)

procedure TForm1.Table1BeforePost(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
  if Table1ID.Value <= 0 then
  begin
    // the data is invalid!!
    Showmessage('Error! Invalid value!');
    Abort
  end
  else
    Table1.Post;
end;
