when you add unit 2, in the form list options window you get an option of "Extract Dictionary Override" option. You can change it there.
Even if I add a XDD in "Extract Dictionary Override" option of a Group(unit 2), while executing it looks only for the Primary XDD defined in BDF. Am i missing anything???like any INI changes?
The way the runtime works is that it should look in the group override XDD first and only when it doesn't find it there would it go to the primary XDD.
Now, if you are talking about picking fields while in DMStudio design, that doesn't know what group a particular form or section belongs too. In fact, the same form can belong to multiple groups. So if you want to see fields from your alternate XDDs, right-click in the Extracts tree tab and "Select a new XDD" to load. This will add your fields from that XDD to make them available.
The other thing to remember is that at runtime the XDD rule will only override portions of the field rule section that you have left empty. So if you have filled in part of the field rule properties in your section, the part you have will survive anything that the XDD rule would go load.
Thanks!!!that was really helpful!!!
