Record Placeholder

A record placeholder is the representation of a Tulip Table entry inside of the trigger editor. When an entry is loaded into a record, all fields in the record are set as the values in the Tulip Table entry as they were at the time the record was loaded. The record interface allows users to insert, update, or delete entries in a Tulip Table. A record has an associated Tulip Table, and the record can not modify values in other Tulip Tables than its associated Table.


TableThe Tulip Table from which the record can load values and into which the Tulip Table can store values.
PlaceholderThe name of the record as it will appear inside the trigger editor.
Places UsedThe widgets and triggers that reference this Table Record Placeholder. These references must be deleted before the Table Record Placeholder can be deleted
