Example
// Insert the "Vince" and "Moore" elements
// into the 5th row of "TABLE_CustomerTable" control
ResInsert = TableInsert(TABLE_CustomerTable, "Vince" + TAB + "Moore", 5)
Syntax
<Result> = TableInsert(<Table Control> [, <Row> [, <Subscript>]])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the element was inserted,
  • False otherwise.
<Table Control>: Control name
Name of control to use. This control can correspond to:
  • a Table control.
  • a TreeView Table control.
  • WINDEVWindows Mobile a Combo Box control with table.
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the control to which the current process belongs will be used.
<Row>: Optional character string
Row to insert. This row has the following format:
<Element Column1> + TAB + <Element Column2> + TAB + ...

If this parameter is not specified, an empty row is inserted into the control. For a browsing control, the default values defined in the linked data file are taken into account.
<Subscript>: Optional integer
Subscript of the row to insert. The subscript of first row is set to 1.
Subscript not specifiedThe row is inserted before the current row. If no row is selected, the row is inserted at the end of control.
Subscript greater than the number of control rows.The row is inserted at the end of control.
Subscript equal to 0The row is inserted at the beginning of control.
Subscript equal to -1The row is inserted before the current row.
Remarks
TableInsert can be used on:
  • a browsing or memory control,
  • a single-selection or multi-selection control.
    WEBDEV - Server codePHP Reminder: The multi-selection controls are available in Ajax only. WEBDEV - Server codePHP Reminder: The multi-selection is not available for the Classic Table controls.
WEBDEV - Server codePHP This function is available for the Ajax Table controls, the Classic Table controls and the TreeView Table controls.
WEBDEV - Browser code This function is available for the browser Table controls only.
WEBDEV - Browser codeAndroidiPhone/iPad The TreeView Table control is not available.
AndroidiPhone/iPad The browsing Table controls are not available in edit. TableInsert cannot be used on a browsing Table control.

Characteristics of inserted row

  • Each inserted element is converted into the type of relevant column.
  • To specify no value for an element, use an empty string ("") or 0 (according to the type of column). For example:
    TableInsert(TABLE_CustomerTable, "Moore" + TAB + "Vince" ...
    TAB + "" + TAB + "21/06/72")
  • If an element corresponds to the calculation result, the numeric expression must be enclosed in brackets. For example:
    TableInsert(TABLE_CalcTable, (53+29) + TAB + (83-21))

Position of inserted row

By default, the row is inserted at the specified position.
Special cases:
  • If the control is sorted by TableSort, the inserted row is positioned in the control according to the current sort (and not according to the specified subscript).
  • If the control is sorted by the user, the sort is ignored when inserting the row. The row is inserted at the specified position.
AndroidiPhone/iPad Special cases:
  • If the control is sorted by TableSort, the inserted row is positioned in the control according to the current sort (and not according to the specified subscript).
  • If the control is sorted by the user, the inserted row is positioned in the control according to the current sort (and not according to the specified subscript).

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).

Various

To add rows at the end of Table or TreeView Table control, use TableAddLine.
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeWindows MobileJavaPHP

Adding rows

..NewLine is used to find out whether the current row was just created by TableInsert (..NewLine = True).
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeWindows MobileJavaPHP

Cascading input

To perform cascading input, TableInsert must be used in the exit process of a row of Table control:
IF TABLE_CustomerTable..NewLine = True THEN
TableInsert(TABLE_CustomerTable)
END
WEBDEV - Server codePHP This operating mode is available for the Ajax Table controls only.
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeWindows MobileJavaPHP

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

If the cascading input is enabled, the content of 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 content of data file linked to the control is not modified. To write the content of inserted row into the data file, TableSave must be called after TableInsert.
Notes:
  • The "Cascading input" option can be selected in the "Details" tab of control description.
  • Java The cascading input is not available for the browsing Table controls with direct access. This option is available for the memory Table controls and for the browsing Table controls loaded in memory.
  • Versions 19 and later
    WEBDEV - Server code The cascading input is available for the Ajax browsing Table controls only.
    New in version 19
    WEBDEV - Server code The cascading input is available for the Ajax browsing Table controls only.
    WEBDEV - Server code The cascading input is available for the Ajax browsing Table controls only.
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeWindows MobileJavaPHP

Browsing Table or TreeView Table control: Inserting several rows

A virtual row is created in the control whenever TableInsert is called in a browsing Table or TreeView Table control. The information will be saved in the data file during the call to TableSave.
If TableInsert 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 browsing Table or TreeView Table control.
WEBDEV - Server codePHP This operating mode is available for the browsing Ajax Table controls only.
WINDEVWindows MobileJavaUser code (UMC)

Editable Table or TreeView Table control

If TableInsert is called:
  • In a process of the control, the cursor is automatically positioned on the first column to edit in the inserted row.
  • In a process that does not belong to the control, ReturnToCapture must be used to resume the input in the Table or TreeView Table control.

Inserting images

To insert an image into a Table control:
  • WINDEV specify the name and full path of image to insert. For example:
    TableInsert(TABLE_MyTable, "C:\MyDocuments\MyImage.BMP")
  • WEBDEV - Server codePHP specify the path and name of image to insert. The path is relative to the "<Project_Name>_WEB" directory. For example:
    // Adds the image found in the "WB_MyApp_WEB" directory
    TableInsert(TABLE_MyTable, "MyImage.BMP")
Note: The column must be an Image column otherwise the added image will not be displayed properly.
