Pinned topic Changing Field Exit key

‏2007-11-01T15:42:26Z |
I created and converted my WebFacing project only to discover that I forgot
to change the Field Exit Key from Ctrl to 107 (the plus sign on the keypad).
I went into the project properties and made the change. Do I have to
reconvert the entire project so it will use the new key?

Rob

    Hi Rob,

    You should be able to just change it in the project properties and all
    will be fine. There is no need to recompile to pick up the changed
    field exit key code.

      Thanks, Mike. I did a small scale test and it worked great.

        Good.

        BTW, you will find that they field exit code is just an application parm
        in the web.xml :

        <context-param>
        <description>Field exit key code</description>
        <param-name>WFFieldExitKeyCode</param-name>
        <param-value>Ctrl</param-value>
        </context-param>

        PS. when I previously said "recompile" I meant "reconvert" but I'm sure
        you understood :-)
