Example

The following example retrieves the record that has a primary key value of ‘30000’ from the Customer table. If the record is found, it is stored in the MyRecord variable. The SETRECORD function uses the retrieved record as the current record and sets record for MyPage, which is a Customer Card page. When the code unit is run, the record is displayed on the MyPage page. If the record is not found, a message box displays a message that indicates that the record was not found. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constant in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Subtype
MyPage Page Customer Card
MyRecord Record Customer
Text constant name ENU value
Text 000 The record was not found.
IF  
  MyRecord.GET('30000') THEN BEGIN  
  MyPage.SETRECORD(MyRecord);  
  MyPage.RUN;  
   END  
ELSE BEGIN  
  MESSAGE(Text000);  
  END;
