A modal form is a window which the user must dismiss in some way before returning control to the calling application.

Creation of a modal form in X++

If you are using the FormRun class to create a form, simply add this code. The last line will ensure that it is opened in a modal state.

<xpp> formRun.init(); formRun.run(); formRun.wait(true); </xpp>

You will get a completely modal form on your client. To open any other forms you need to dismiss the form, or open a new client.

Even better, you can call the wait method from the form itself!

<xpp> public void run() {

   super();
   element.wait(true);

} </xpp>
