If you know the specific page that you want to run when you are designing your application, then you can create a Page variable, set the Subtype of the variable to a specific page, and then use this method or the Run Method (Page).
If you do not know the specific page that you want to run, then use the Run Method (Page) or the RunModal Method (Page) and specify the page in the Number parameter.
After you define the page variable, you can use it before and after you run the page. If you use the Run Method (Page), then you can only use the variable before you run the page.
This example shows how to use this method. Assume that the SomePage variable has been defined as
Clear(SomePage); SomePage.XXX; // Any user-defined method SomePage.SetTableView(MyRecord); SomePage.SetRecord(MyRecord); if SomePage.RunModal = Action::LookupOK then SomePage.GetRecord(MyRecord)...
This code example includes the Clear Method to make sure that the variable has been cleared.
