    Auto-Enter and Validation



      Auto-Enter and Validation


           Using Pro 10 Advanced 

           We have friendly userids such as christopher.robinson that are only used for email and what we require in the field is their login userid such as crobinson but truncated to 8 characters so crobinso. Friendly userids always contain a period; login userids never contain a period.

           So I've got the Auto-Enter as a calculated value to do:

      Let(At = Position ( Self ; "." ; 1 ; 1 );Case(At>0;Self;Left ( Self ; 8 )))

           so the field is only truncated if it doesn't contain a period since I don't want to end up with christop.

      The Auto-Enter truncation seems to work fine whether I tab or click outside the fields.

           I've got Validate data in this field always, don't Allow user to override during data entry, and Validate by Calculation

      Let (
               At = Position ( Self ; "." ; 1 ; 1 );
               At ≤ 0
               // Return boolean F if period was found

           with Display custom message if validation fails

      No friendly userids i.e. no periods allowed.


      The validation doesn't seem to happen if I tab but only if I click outside the fields.

      Is there a way to get it to happen when I tab?
