CloseCell Message


on closeCell [<row>] [,<col>]
end closeCell Sent to an unlocked dataSheet


A closeCell message is generated when the cursor leaves a previously selected dataSheet cell whose contents have changed. The message includes two optional integer parameters, <row> and <col>, which indicate the region of the dataSheet that the cursor left. The upper left cell of the dataSheet has a <row> of 1 and a <col> of 1. Note that this message is not sent if the data in the cell remains unchanged since it was opened. This message is sent only in Browse mode. Examples: Add the following handler to a dataSheet object: on closeCell closeRow, closeCol answer "The contents of cell (" & closeRow &"," & closeCol & ") have changed" with "OK" end closeCell Whenever the user leaves a cell that has been modified, this handler displays a dialog box informing him or her that the contents have been changed. The following datasheet handler copies the contents of the current cell into a cell of the same row and column number residing on the background: on closeCell rownum, colnum cell rownum, column of bg datasheet 1 end closeCell
