Languages Focus: Edit Record

This common syntax name documents editing a record as a whole: add/insert, edit, post data, and delete.

ObjectPAL Edit Record

In ObjectPAL, you use Cursor.InsertRecord to add a new record, Cursor.postRecord to post the record, and Cursor.deleteRecord() to delete it. To edit a record, you must put the cursor into edit mode, Cursor.Edit(). (A cursor applies to both a TCursor and UIObject.)

ObjectPAL gives you tremendous flexibility with editing data and includes many additional commands such as insertAfterRecord and isEdit. For dBASE tables, you can also use unDeleteRecord() to un-delete a record. See the ObjectPAL help for more commands.

Syntax Example:

The following code snippet adds a record to a given TCursor with FullName and Created fields:

tc.FullName = "Barack Obama"
tc.Created  = today()
