I have a subfile that displays sales order records. If the order is a direct ship, the order number is displayed in turquoise. The color is controlled by an indicator that is set on when the records are loaded to the subfile. The subfile record is defined with keyword SFLNXTCHG and the user has options that can be entered for each subfile record.
As the option on each changed record is processed, the subfile record is updated to clear the option. The problem is I lose the color attribute in this update process. In researching this, the most recommended solution is to have a hidden field on the subfile rec that I could use to track the status of the color attribute.
I am wondering if this is still the best way or if there is a newer way to handle this issue.
