Add New Entry/Exit/Validate Method

Use this dialog to create a new declaration for a column Entry, Exit, or Validation message.

If you were editing the column's Entry Message attribute when this dialog was activated, then it will create a new procedure declaration in the data dictionary class with the entered method name. The procedure will have the correct declaration prototype for an Entry Message and a reference to the new message will be assigned to the column's Entry Message attribute.

If you were editing an Exit Message or a Validation Message attribute, then the dialog will likewise create a new procedure (or function) declaration of the correct prototype and assign it to the column's Exit Message or Validation Message attribute.

The new message declaration will appear in Code Explorer as a new data dictionary class method. Double-click the tree item in Code Explorer to begin editing the method declaration.
