Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

This method can be applied to a variable based on a Business Component type of a two-level transaction, in order to get a record that corresponds to a "line" by specifying its key.

First, all the structure must be loaded in memory by using the Load method, and after that, the GetByKey method can be used to get the desired "line" by specifying the second level identifier.

Suppose you define the following two-level transaction as a Business component (by setting its Business component property = True):


If you need to update for the AttractionId = 6 its AttractionTicketId=3 with a different price, you can do so with the following code:

&AttractionTicket = &Attraction.Ticket.GetByKey(3)
&AttractionTicket.AttractionTicketPrice = 100
If &Attraction.Success()
