For editing a field in a datagrid form, you need a little more code
than the fillindata and layoutcontrol handlers.
First of all the LayoutControl handler have one parameter you can use
for getting the rect of me:
on LayoutControl pControlRect
In the LayoutControl handler, you are placing controls relatively to
their own rects instead of using the rect of the datagrid cell. I have
not tested the result of your code, but the result should be a bit
different than the result you are expecting.
This could maybe explain why the strategy field is not visible:
because it is maybe not include in the rect of the cell row.
Comment the layoutcontrol code and try again.
About editing a field in a datagrid form:
Most common usage is to edit a field by double clicking on it.
So you need a mouseDoubleUp handler in your behavior script:
on mouseDoubleUp pMouseBtnNum
if pMouseBtnNum is 1 then
if (word 1 of the target is "field") then
if the dgProps["allow editing"] of the dgControl of me then
EditFieldText the long id of the target, the dgIndex of me,"freq"
1. The field is editable only if the datagrid is editable (the
dgProps["allow editing"] of the dgControl of me)
2. With the EditFieldText handler we are assuming you have a key named
"freq" in your datagrid data.
3. the dgIndex of me is the index of the edited row.
For more information about the EditFieldText handler, have a look to
