How to apply the original override when host application has changed a screen?

Product: Newlook Type: How to

A screen on the host application have changed and now newlook recognized it as a new form. How do I apply the previous override for this screen?


For an override to apply to the current screen, the following condition must exist: the current screen must have exactly the same characters in exactly the same position as the characters specified as the override’s Screen ID.

If the underlying host screen has changed and the characters for the screen ID have moved positions then the override will not apply.

To re-apply the override to the new screen, you can try the following steps:

- Close runtime window

- Go to the Host Form list and find the original override for the screen.
You can filter the list for the name of the original override

- Open the override and switch to Identify and note the screen ID fields

- Adjust the screen ID of the original override so that it can apply to both the new and old versions, save the changes and close the override.

- Start runtime window and navigate to the new screen

- Open the screen in Identify and it should be recognized as the original override 

- Now you can re-adjust the screenID for the new screen if necessary
