Programming by preset action
Overview
The programming by preset action allows you to describe the code of an event in a single click, by selecting an action from a list, without having to write one single line of code.
For example:
Running the click code of Button control and opening the window
Running the click code of Button control and opening the window
Initializing a component, the parameters are specified in the interface
The preset actions are proposed:
  • on Button controls (in the event "Click").
  • WINDEV on menu options.
  • WEBDEV - Server code on Link controls (in the event "Click (server)").
How to?

Defining a preset action
