4D View Pro auto save object field

If I set an object field in the ‘variable or expression’ property of a 4D View Pro plugin object, shouldn’t the VP contents be stored automatically in the record?
Like a WP object.

Am I missing something?

VP Export to object is your friend :wink:

also see the documentation here no mention of automagical storage…

That is only a feature of 4D Write Pro. To save your contents in a 4D View Pro document, you would need to use something like VP export to object or VP Export Document.

But then what is the ‘variable or expression’ supposed to do?

Nothing, leave it empty… (only the object name is used)
