ID as Field Name

By David Gyenes, Director of Information Technology

 – ID as Field Name –

I have seen people creating their own ID field in Ninox. They simply create a text or number type field and name it ID. DON’T DO THAT! 🙂

Ninox uses a hidden internal ID that is not visible unless we use a formula type field to call it. If I create a text or number field called “ID” (it is not case sensitive) and somewhere else in my code I try to refer to the internal ID, it won’t be found because of the conflicting ID field I created. If you need to create your own ID field, name it something slightly different like “InvoiceID”.
