I like to create a very simple grid to add and maintain records in a table.

To make it even more easy for inexperienced users, I like to create an ‘Add’ button in form, with a task without logic.

Result:

 

To let it work I like to make use of a simple process flow.

For some reason, it does not work. The process flow monitor remains blank.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Harm,

Adding records to the grid is a form of default edit mode, which saves the record based on losing focus on the record you are working with. 

Focus lost could be triggered by the click on something else, which could be an action button like a task of a prefilter. We choose to prevent the user from doing two things at once by preventing the process flow to take the user to another action, instead of the action the user clicked on.

That's why your process flow doesn't run.

Regards Erik

Erik,

Ok, I understand more ore less, but is there any way to achieve what I want? Or is it a bad idea?

Best regards,

Currently there is no way to accomplish this behaviour triggered by a process flow.

As a workaround: why not make the “adding row” always visible, so the users can find the spot to add new records by looking at it?
