+1 vote

In release Version:, Beta
You have the following new functionality and along wit
•ActionButtons: RunProcedure buttons can now display procedure results as a Message, HTML Dialog or Table.
Does this means that I can return a message from my called SP and have it displayed to the user. If so, is there any specific *OUT Parameter Name I need to define in the SP or just return any length varchar field.
In essence, how does this work.

As indicated Stored Procedures can now return values.

Within the Stored Procedure have a final "SELECT" statement return the result set you are interested in.

In the Procedure tab of the Action Button preferences you can specify the Result type:

  • (Discard Results): This will cause the procedure results to be discarded.
  • Automatic: This will cause dbFront to check the returned value and select HTML as the output format if a single column and row was returned, or TABLE if multiple rows and columns were returned.
  • Message: Return the value from the first column and row as a simple message.
  • HTML: Return the value from the first column and row as HTML that will be shown in a dialog.
  • Table: Build and display an HTML Table using the result set.
