Stored procedures
Adds a row into a Table control or into a TreeView Table control with an animation. The duration of this animation can be configured:
  • in the "Style" tab of Table control:
    • In the "Style" tab, select the "Control animation" element.
    • In the list of animations, select "Modification by TableXXXWithAnimation()" and click the "Parameters" button.
  • in the project description:
    • In the "Advanced" tab, click the "Animation of controls" button.
    • In the "Table and Looper control" area, select "Modification by TableXXXWithAnimation()" and click the "Parameters" button.
If the added row is the first row of the control, the added row becomes the current row.
Note:
Example
// Adds the "Moore" and "Vince" elements
// into the last row of "TABLE_ProductTable" control
TableAddLineWithAnimation(TABLE_ProductTable, "Moore", "Vince")
Syntax
<Result> = TableAddLineWithAnimation(<Table Name> [, <Element Column 1> [ ... [, <Element Column N>]])
<Result>: Integer
  • Subscript of added row,
  • -1 if an error occurred.
<Table Control>: Control name
Name of control to use. This control can correspond to:
  • a Table control.
  • a TreeView Table control.
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the control to which the current process belongs will be used.
<Element Column 1>: Type of associated column (optional)
Elements of the row that will be added into the specified control. Each element corresponds to a control column. The type of the added element must be compatible with the type of the relevant column.
If none of these parameters is specified, an empty row is added into the control. For a browsing control, the default values defined in the linked data file are taken into account.
<Element Column N>: Type of associated column (optional)
Elements of the row that will be added into the specified control. Each element corresponds to a control column. The type of the added element must be compatible with the type of the relevant column.
If none of these parameters is specified, an empty row is added into the control. For a browsing control, the default values defined in the linked data file are taken into account.
Remarks

Use conditions

TableAddLineWithAnimation can be used on:
  • a browsing or memory control,
  • a single-selection or multi-selection control.
The animation is not played in the following cases:
  • if the animations are disabled (AnimationEnabled).
  • if the function is used in the following window processes: "Global declarations", "End of initialization" or "Closing".
  • if the application is in TSE mode.
  • if the addition is performed outside the visible area (below or above). In this case, the addition is performed and the function gives control back immediately.
The function gives control back at the end of animation only.

Characteristics of row elements

  • To specify no value for an element, use an empty string ("") or 0 (according to the type of column).
  • If an element corresponds to the calculation result, the numeric expression must be enclosed in brackets.
    For example:
    TableAddLineWithAnimation(TABLE_CalculationTable, (53+29), (83-21))

Position of added row

By default, the row is added at the end of control.
Special case:
  • If the control is sorted by TableSort, the added row is positioned in the control according to the current sort.
  • If the control is sorted by the user, the sort is ignored when inserting the row. The row is added at the end of control.

Limits: Maximum number of rows displayed

The maximum number of rows that can be displayed in a Table or TreeView Table control is limited by the amount of available memory (theoretical maximum: 2 billion rows).
However, we do not advise you to use large Table or TreeView Table controls for performance and user-friendliness reasons (time required to fill the control for example).

Browsing Table or TreeView Table control: Modifications in the linked data file

  • If the cascading input is enabled, the data file linked to the control is automatically modified when the user goes to the next row.
  • If the cascading input is not enabled, the data file linked to the browsing Table control is not modified. To write the content of added row into the linked data file, TableSave must be used after TableAddLineWithAnimation.
Note: The "Cascading input" option can be selected in the "Details" tab of control description.

Browsing Table or TreeView Table control: Adding several rows

A virtual row is created in the control whenever TableAddLineWithAnimation is called in a browsing Table or TreeView Table control. The information will be saved in the linked data file during the call to TableSave.
If TableAddLineWithAnimation is successively called in the same process without being followed by TableSave, only the FIRST call is effective (the following calls are ignored). A single row is added into the control.

Addition into a browsing Table control and trigger

You have the ability to release a trigger when a record is added into a browsing Table control. See the documentation about HDescribeTrigger for more details.

Editable Table or TreeView Table control

If TableAddLineWithAnimation is called:
  • In a control process, the cursor is automatically positioned on the first column to edit in the added row.
  • In a process not belonging to the control, ReturnToCapture must be used to resume the input in the control.

Adding images

To add an image into a Table or TreeView Table control, specify the name and full path of the image to add. For example:
TableAddLineWithAnimation(TABLE_MyTable, "C:\MyDocuments\MyImage.BMP")
Note: The column must be an Image column otherwise the added image will not be displayed properly.
