A new right-click feature in win forms has been implemented.


A pop-up menu will be displayed when the user presses the right-click button on a data field.

Common options displayed for the differents data type fields are:
Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete and Select All

Particular options displayed for the differents data type fields are:
  • Character type fields: Right to left Reading order, Show unicode controls characters, Insert unicode control character (these last two options will be added by Windows if applicable).
  • Numeric type fields: Calculator (allows the final user to calculate 'x' number and return it to the respective field)

  • Foreign key fields: Browse data (calls the prompt defined program to select a possible value for the attribute)
