Creating OpenEdge database triggers
The Create Trigger wizard allows you to create a new trigger.
Note: You cannot create Java triggers using DB Navigator wizards.
You can create a new OpenEdge .p file, or attach an existing .p file to the trigger by performing the following steps:
1. Select the TRIGGERS, the 4GL TRIGGERS, or the REPLICATION TRIGGERS node in the DB Structure view.
2. Right-click, and choose Create Trigger from the context menu.
Note: At least one OpenEdge project must be open. If no project is open, you see an error message.
3. Enter trigger information in the Create Trigger wizard.
4. Click Finish. The new or existing file that you specified opens in the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge ABL Editor.
Note: For more information about triggers, see the ABL manuals in the OpenEdge Product Documentation section of the Progress Communities Web site.
