I want my app to work so that when someone inserts something that matches a record that it draws back all the data so that it can be updated and edited.
That isn't how a form works. It displays a single record. That record is selected from a table of records, shown in a galley, datatable dropdown or combobox control.
I've done it in the past to where I'll put either someones name or id and all the records will fill the page with the datacards I have displayed so that I can go back and edit any mistakes or update anything.
Your terminology is incorrect. Somehow you select a single record from a table for your form. The values in that record then fill the controls in the form's data cards. The form has a datasource and an Item property. The Item property tells the form which record in the datasource is being edited.
Use a galley to show the records in your datasource. Call it Gallery1. Use the same datasource for your form. In the Item property of the form put
The form will then fill up with the values in the selected record. If the name of the form is Form1, put a button outside of the form with the OnSelect property: SubmitForm(Form1).
The user can choose the record to edit in the gallery, make changes in the form, and save them by pressing the button.
Hello, how do I get my form in an edit form when I type in the loan number so that anything associated with that loan number fills up all the other datacardvalue fields?
