Abstract

Would you like to turn on or off the Enter key for new row functionality?

Body

Whe you press Enter after specifying data in a table row in Maximo, a new line is created in applications.  (For example, when adding new rows in a Work Order Tracking plans tab, Services subtab , or,  when adding tasks to a workorder, etc...).  You just press the ENTER key on the Description field from a line and then a second line appeared, and so on...  third line as well..

 

This is caused by a system property which is called webclient.defaultbutton.

 

This property applies to users who press Enter after they specify data in a table row.

 

When you set this property to 1 in System Properties, you can specify data in a table row, and by pressing Enter key, Maximo will create a new table row, having the Enter key to perform the default button action. (Considering that in Application Designer, the New Row button for that particular application section is set as 'Default Button')

 

When you set this property to 0, specify data in a table row, and press Enter, Maximo no longer creates a table row by pressing ENTER key

 

Have a nice day ;-)
