  • The button is not in "table 1", but in a given record of that table. The field to be modified is not in "table 2", but also in a specific record of that table. It is very difficult to suggest anything without knowing what kind of relation exists between those two records. Please add some more information...

    I am making a application for an agency showing how much to pay the artists. 

    I have 3 tables, Artists, Clients and Events. 

    Within the individual artists profile i have a link to the events table which shows the artists individual events. 

    The information needed under events is;

    a "before today" formula which gives me a yes if the individual event was before today or a no if it after. 

    a "before today hours" showing the hours done if "before today" = yes

    a "hours to be paid" showing "before today hours" if a yes or no field called "artist paid" = no

    if "artist paid" = yes the hours to be paid = 0

    going back into the artists profile i have a formula called "total to be paid" showing the sum of "hours to be paid"

    next to this i have a button which when i press it i want it to change the values of the all the "artist paid" = yes if the "before today" value is = yes

  • for t in select Artists do
      if t.'before today' = true then
        t.('artist paid' := true)
      end
    end

     

    If the "artist paid" and "before today" fields are of type "Yes / No" then the above may work. I have not tested it.

    this coding doesnt seem  to be working, i am not that advanced with ninox so it may be with me. For some reason it doesnt even alow me to use the button to switch the no to a yes 

    events.'artist paid'= true

  • I just tested it and it works. As I mentioned above, the 'before today' and 'artist paid' fields must be of type "Yes / No" in order for the code to work. Go to the Actions tools pulldown menu and select "Edit fields". There you will see the various field types listed. Drag the "Yes / No" type fields from right to left. Hope this helps.

  • From what I understand of the structure of your database, in the "Artists" table, there should be a field called (by default) "Events", which is a "Reference from Artists to Events 1:n". This field was created automatically when, in the "Events" table, you created the reference to the "Artists" table.

    If this is correct, the following script should do what you need:

    for e in Events do
    if e.'before today' then
    e.('artist paid' := true)
    end
    end

    Add a button in the "Artists" table, and paste the above code in the "On click" field. Set the name of the button to, of course, "Artist paid".

  • Just for the record, an even simpler  script:

    for e in Events['before today'] do
    e.('artist paid' := true)
    end

  • Ockam's razor is still sharp. Would you believe that this single-liner does the job:

    Events['before today'].('artist paid' := true)

  • Alain, this one line of code is very powerful. Thank you for sharing it.
