You can now open an application with form and query:
/d - <Name/Query> - Startup Document/Query format as for DG3 and DeServer URL.
Ex. de86developer /1 /u High /p High /d Customers/?CustomerName=\"A*\"
When setting query filter for text fields remember to escape " or it will not be valid. for other fiels you can type the value directly.
You can also write the full command line like this:"C:\Program Files (x86)\DataEase\DataEase 8.6\de86developer.exe " "D:\Documents\My DataEase\86Test\Data" "GT Service 2013" high high Customers/?CustomerName="A*"
Remember the "horrible" Windows rules for "" around paths.
You MUST have "" when it is space in the path, but you CAN'T have it if it isn't.... Yes. Stupid!
If there is space in application names etc, you will also have spaces around them .
