Field Descriptions
Browse
Cancel transaction on drill change
Specifies the behavior of a child maintenance screen when the selected row in the parent browse is changed. Set to True or False. If this option is set to True, then a child screen always moves to the data selected in the parent browse (although a message is presented allowing you to cancel this if you have modified data in that screen). If this option is set to False, then the child screen moves to the data selected in the parent browse only if you have not modified data in the child screen. Default is True. If you change this setting, you must restart the QAD .NET UI for the change to take effect.

Alternatively, you can click the plus icon next to the Cell Font attribute to expand the values associated with it and specify them one at a time.
Specifying the underline font attribute has no effect. This attribute is used by the system to indicate a link that can be clicked to drill down in a cell.
