Method Trigger Action Description
Save The Save Action. The Save Action’s SimpleAction.Execute event handler. Does nothing. Overridden in the Controller’s descendants.
SaveAndClose The Save and Close Action. The Save and Close Action’s SimpleAction.Execute event handler. Does nothing. Overridden in the Controller’s descendants.
SaveAndNew The Save and New Action. The Save and New Action’s SimpleAction.Execute event handler. Commits changes made to the current View’s object and executes the New Action, if it is available (see NewObjectViewController.NewObjectAction).
Cancel The Cancel Action. The Cancel Action’s SimpleAction.Execute event handler. Does nothing. Overridden in the Controller’s descendants.
UpdateActionState A change in environment (for example, the current object was changed). Checks whether the active or enabled state of the Save, Save and Close, Save and New and Cancel Actions should be changed after changes in the environment.

This Controller is activated for Object Views only. To check whether the Controller is active, use the Controller.Active property. If you need to know the reason for its deactivation or activation at runtime, use the DiagnosticInfo Action.

Information about ModificationsController and its Cancel, Save, SaveAndClose, and SaveAndNew Actions is available in the Application Model‘s ActionDesign node. To access it, use the Model Editor.
