GetMVGBusComp Method

The GetMVGBusComp method returns the MVG business component associated with the business component field specified by FieldName. This business component can be used to operate on the multi-value group using the normal business component mechanisms.





Name of the field with a multi-value group attached, used to obtain the multi-value group business component


The multi-value group business component of the current business component and identified field


A multi-value group is a set of detail records attached to the current record in the business component that holds the corresponding multi-value field.

The GetMVGBusComp should be set to Nothing after use.

NOTE:  In the context of a many-to-many relationship, you can use Siebel VB to either add a new record, that is, associate a new child record, or insert a record, that is, create a new record in the child business component. To add a record, use GetAssocBusComp and the Associate method. To insert a record, use GetMVGBusComp and the NewRecord method.

Used With

COM Data Control, COM Data Server, Java Data Bean, Mobile Web Client Automation Server, Server Script
