Subject Edit a field with an alternate format
Author Brian Dunstan
In my BDE application I use calculated fields to present data in a format
that is more easily human readable than the native format. For example
MAX_AGE_DAYS is an age in days, but the user wants to see ages in days,
weeks or years. In my BDE application I defined a calculated field
MAX_AGE_STRING and OnGetText and OnSetText events to allow the user to both
view and edit a string such as '10 Years' instead of 35625!

The problem is, with IB_Grid will not allow editing a calculated field.

No doubt IBO provides a way of doing something like this, but I have not
discovered it yet.

Can someone please tell me?

Many thanks,
