In Sage X3, screen validation is frequent task which developers often do. We can validate Sage X3 screen through code.

“Setmok” is used to validate or invalidate a screen.
Syntax for Setmok is given in below example:
# forcing validated status
Setmok [STO] with 1

In order to optimize response times, actions on the field are no longer executed when a screen is considered valid.
A screen is valid after the “Actzo” and “Affzo” instructions on the mask class.

Conversely, the Actzo and Affzo instructions on rank(s) or field(s) do not alter the validity status of the mask.

A screen is invalid as soon as a field has been modified, or after the “effzo” instruction.

If in a particular case, this procedure is undesirable, a screen may be validated or invalidated by the instruction “Setmok”.

If the parameter “exp” is equivalent to 0 (example 1), the screen will be considered invalid and the field checks will be performed.

If the parameter “exp” is other than 0 (example 3), the screen will be considered valid and the field checks will not be performed. This will improve performance.
