JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version SP24 and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
Event Rules are logic statements that are used to create complex business logic without requiring knowledge of a programming language or its syntax. Event Rules are created using the EnterpriseOne software tools and attached to events. Events are activities that occur in an application, such as entering a form, exiting a field, exiting a row, or initiating a page break on a report. Event rules process when the user or the system initiates an event. Event Rules can be attached to controls, such as a particular field, an entire form, the grid, a report section, or a table. They can also be created within business function event rules (Named Event Rules) to become encapsulated, reusable business logic.
Event Rules can be created to perform the following type of functions:
Perform a mathematical calculation
Pass data from a field on a form to a field on another form
Count grid rows that are populated with data
Interconnect two forms
Hide or display a control using a system function
Evaluate If/While and Else conditions
Assign a value or expression to a field
Create variables or programmer-defined fields at runtime
Perform a batch process upon completion of an interactive application
Process table input and output, data validations, and record retrieval
For additional information on Event Rules, refer to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Development Tools: Event Rules Guide available on the Oracle Technology Network
This document provides an overview of Event Rules and System Functions.
This document is intended for the EnterpriseOne developer who will be using the Design tools and Event Rules to develop and/or modify interactive and batch applications.
