Description

In BBj 4.0 and higher, a BBjRecordSet represents the set of records from a data file or SQL SELECT command. The BBjRecordSet maintains a pointer to the current record (BBjRecordData) with methods to insert, update, delete, and move between records. A record set is often bound to one or more data-aware GUI controls. See Interface RecordSetBindable::bindRecordSet for more information.

Creation

The BBjRecordSet object is created through the following BBjAPI object methods:

Example

REM ' BBjRecordSet sample

REM ' First, create a data file
FILENAME$="BBjRecordSet.dat"
MODES$=""
TEMPLATE$="STATE:C(2),NAME:C(16*=)"
erase FILENAME$,err=*next
mkeyed FILENAME$,2,0,32
channel=unt
open (channel)FILENAME$
dim REC$:TEMPLATE$

REM ' Load the file with state codes and names
while 1
dread rec.state$,rec.name$,END=*break
write record (channel,KEY=rec.state$)rec$
wend
close (channel)

REM ' Create the RecordSet
RecordSet! = BBJAPI().createFileRecordSet(FILENAME$,MODES$,TEMPLATE$)

REM ' Go to the first record
RecordSet!.first()

REM ' Retrieve the RecordData for the current record
RecordData! = RecordSet!.getCurrentRecordData()

REM ' Print the RecordData
print "The first record is:",'LF',RecordData!,
