Tip #24 – The RunFormMode Property

This Blog Article was brought forward from my old blog

When you are on a Role Center you often see the New This and New That option…

Today I wanted to make one of my own and discovered a new property with a weird name.

Let’s create a New Vendor property on this page.

Let’s attach the Vendor Card page to this action…

And test…

You’ll see that it will just open on the first Vendor Record.

This is not the intended behavior, so how do we implement that? Yes, with the RunFormMode property.

I have no idea why this is called RunFormMode… dear Microsoft, it is a Page property…

But let’s change it to Create.

And retest,

And YES, it opens on a new, blank record.

Enjoy…
