How to find if a field in the screen is enabled or disabled?

By | September 23, 2014

A developer in sage ERP X3 may come across a requirement where he/she wants to do validation depending on whether the field is enabled or disabled. Sage ERP X3 offers a Numeric function “varmode” from which, we can identify whether the field is enabled or disabled.

“Varmode” is used to determine if a mask variable can be entered or displayed.

Varmode contains one or two arguments (the second one being equal to zero by default). In the case of a sized field, a second argument will be given.


The varmode function returns,

0: for an enterable field (without diszo or grizo)
1: for a displayed or invisible field.

Moreover, in an enterable field, the varmode function returns,

1: following a Grizo on an enterable field.
2: following a Diszo on an enterable field.
