Question/Problem Description

* VIEW-AS TOGGLE-BOX works fine with variables and table fields.

Defect/Enhancement NumberOE00213087
The root cause is unknown at the moment but defect OE00213087 has reported to track this issue.
None at the moment.
There are at least 2 possible approaches.


One possible solution is to create a Temp Table that contains the fields that will be shown in the browse, plus a logical value that will hold the result of the function for earch table row. After populating the temp table then a Browse can be defined to show the temp table content.


Another approach is to use ON ROW-DISPLAY and set the value of toggle-box here.

The attached file contains an example using TEMP TABLES and another using ON ROW-DISPLAY.
