Purpose With Default you can assign a default value for an input field. In other words, if the field is blank when the screen is displayed, this default value will be assigned to it.
Example Default F[Order type] "CS"

If the field Order type is blank, the value "CS" is assigned to it.

Format Default F[Input field] "Value"
& Tricks
  • You can assign a Default even for fields which are not displayed using del.
  • When you represent a field by means of a series of radiobuttons using the Radiobutton command, the assigned default value leads to the activation of the corresponding radiobutton.
  • You cannot overrule the system default logon-client with the Default command, since there is already a default client shown on screen. But you can use Set, e.g.
    Set F[Client] "800"
