Example
// Click code of the Button control [Seek]
nPos is int
nPos = LOOP_Order.SeekAnywhere(EDT_Search, searchContains)
// If found
IF nPos > 0 THEN
// Selects the row
LOOP_Order = nPos
END
Syntax
<Result> = <Looper control>.SeekAnywhere(<Sought value> [, <Type of search> [, <Start>]])
<Result>: Integer
  • Subscript of element found,
  • -1 if the search failed.
<Looper control>: Control name
Name of Looper control where the search will be performed. The search is performed in all the attributes.
<Sought value>: Character string (with quotes)
Value sought in all attributes.
<Type of search>: Optional Integer constant
Type of search to perform:
searchStartsWithGeneric search whose type is "Starts with":
<Result> corresponds to the subscript of the row where elements have a value starting with <Sought value>.
searchContains
(Default value)
Generic search whose type is "Contains":
<Result> corresponds to the subscript of the row where elements have a value containing <Sought value>.
searchExactMatchExact-match search whose type is "Equals to":
<Result> corresponds to the subscript of the rows where elements have a value strictly equal to <Sought value>.
<Start>: Optional integer

Remarks

Use conditions

  • <Looper>.SeekAnywhere can be used on:
    • a browsing Looper control. However, this function is not available for the browsing Table controls with direct access.
    • a memory Looper control.
  • The value is sought among the attributes that are linked to a visible text value (for example, ..Value on an Edit control or ..Caption on a Static control)
  • The search is not performed in the hidden attributes.

Sensitivity to the case

The search is not case sensitive, even if the search is an exact-match search.
