Hello to everybody!

Anyone knows how to give a name to a Logical Paging Screen in Native without opening the function in VIP? I need to change some properties from the logical screen and I can't reference it because it has no name...

Thank you very much.

Hi,

@MOD does not let you maintain the LS tag name.

You could edit the record manually in LSDEF

Or you could use ProIV IDE, as this allows you to change the tag name, and is a Native editor that I have written.

Hi Ivan

Rob is quite correct.

If you have the bootstrap files AND VIP, then in VIP use the New tab of the General Object Open window and click on the file browser icon. Follow the prompts to create a browser screen for the file (LSDEF). And as Rob indicated, you can then edit the record that you need to add a tag name to. This way you're creating a VIP screen that allows you to edit the data on the file that you want to change without pulling the function itself into VIP.

Just be very careful about what you change - it's a bootstrap file. If you're not sure - then use Rob's IDE tool.

Half of what he said meant something else, and the other half didn't mean anytthing at all

Hi Rob and Donald.

First of all, thank you for your answer, but I have checked out the file: LSDEF, and I have not seen any reference to the LS Tag. Also I have looked for a function that had LS Tags (made in VIP), and I can't see the LS Tags in this file... Is there any other file where PROIV save information relative to the LS????

Hi,

I would not try to change the VIP files, the tag name is used in quite a few VIPBM??.pro files, as they now use this as a key, instread of the LS number.
