Starting in 2004, a new command called EDIT ITEM is created to give 4D a programmatic enabling of "Enter in List" action to several type of list objects. The command changes the object state into enterable state to allow the user to make a change to the data in the object.

The command applies to the following enterable objects:

• Hierarchical lists

• List boxes

• Subforms (in this case, only an object name — the subform — can be passed in object),

• List forms displayed using the MODIFY SELECTION or DISPLAY SELECTION commands.
