Subfile - One Combined Screen

Image Modified

  • The Grid column allows you to choose which fields to include in the subfile grid.  
  • The Search column specifies which fields to check when the user enters a search on the screen.  
  • The Detail Screen column controls which fields are viewed/edited.
  • The Description column controls what labels are used for the fields.  JumpStart retrieves these description from the file definition for you, but you can override them by just clicking on the description and editing it.
  • The Unique Key column is used to specify the files unique key.  The product will populate this automatically using the file's primary key if available.  If not, or incomplete, just check the boxes next to the fields needed for a unique compound key.  This step is critical for JumpStart to correctly handle record retrieval and update.
  • The Move Field Up/Down buttons are used to determine the order that the fields will appear on screen.

Subfile - Separate Screens

Image Modified

The options here are the same as the combined with the exception of the Detail Screen column.

  • The View Screen column determines which fields are on the View record format.
  • The Edit Screen column determines which fields are on the edit screen as well as which fields are editable.
  • The Add Screen column determines which fields are available when adding a new record.

Data Entry

Image Modified

The Data Entry application type only requires a screen to add records.  The fields to be entered are chosen in the Add Screen column.


Image Modified

The Lookup application type requires the fields to be displayed on the Detail Screen as well as the Unique Key.

Code Generation


Image Modified

When generating an RPG application, this section is used to specify where to store the generated source and compiled objects for your application.


Image Modified

For PHP applications, this section is used to enter the name and location that should be used when generating the PHP script and the Rich Display.


Once all of your settings are entered, just click the Generate Application button and JumpStart will begin the process of building the application.  While the generation engine runs, you will see status messages to allow you to track the progress.

Once the process is finished, an alert box will display.

At this point, your application has been generated.  In the case of RPG, it has also been compiled.  You will run the application in the same manner as any other Rich Display application.
