Skip To Form

The Skip To Form task will jump to the given form during specification.

DriveWorks moves to the selected form by fast forwarding or re-winding through the navigation that has been applied.

Therefore any form that is included in this task must be part of the main form navigation (i.e. It must lie between the Start and Finish flags in the Form Navigation stage and cannot be a dialog form).


Property NameDescription
DeferTRUE to defer the execution of the macro until after the Specification has been saved. FALSE to run immediately.

When a Specification is created a copy of the Project file (.driveprojx file) is stored alongside it in a hidden folder. This file is saved when a Specification is transitioned to a non-running state. The Defer property ensures the Task runs after everything else has happened in that Transition, Operation or change in State.

When transitioning a Specification to a paused state, and set a Task to be deferred, it will run after all the changed values have been saved to the Project file.

When a Task is set to be deferred in an Operation then all other Specification Tasks on that Operation would be run first before the Deferred Task is run.

Form NameThe name of the form to skip to.
TitleChanges the Title (not the name) of the task.


When this task is added the properties are static by default.
See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
