- Loading the query in memory
- Partial Fetch
In french: SQLPremier
Positions on the first row of the query result. This row becomes the current row.
If controls or variables are associated with the columns of query result (SQLAssociate
), the values found in the current row are automatically assigned to these elements.
In most cases, SQLFirst
is used in a read loop with SQLNext
: This function must be used during an SQLFirst/SQLCol browse of query result. For more details, see Types of SQL browse
The partial fetch is automatically performed by the Java framework.
// Initialize the scrollbar parameters at the end of query
ResSQL = SQLExec("SELECT CUSTLASTNAME, FIRSTNAME, ADDR1, ADDR2, CITY, ZIP FROM CUSTOMER", ...
IF ResSQL = True THEN
// Displays the first row
// Initializes the upper bound of the scrollbar
SCROLL_SCROLL1..MaxValue = SQL.NbLine
// Positions the scrollbar at the beginning
SCROLL_SCROLL1 = 1
// Processes the error
SQLFirst([<Number of rows>, ] <Query name>)
<Number of rows>: Optional integer
Number of rows that will be loaded in memory every second. This number of rows will constitute a block for the partial Fetch.
Parameter required to perform a read by partial Fetch.
This parameter is ignored. Indeed, the partial Fetch is automatically performed by the Java framework.
<Query name>: Character string
The queries created in the query editor must be specified in the format of a character string.
Loading the query in memory
is called immediately after SQLExec
, the query result is loaded in memory. Two methods are available:
- Entirely load the query in memory if <Number of rows> is not specified. The number of records corresponding to the query result is automatically calculated. The SQL.NbLine variable is updated.
- Partially load the query in memory (also called partial fetch) if <Number of rows> is specified.
Only the first block of rows is loaded in memory. The following blocks are automatically loaded in background task (mechanism of partial fetch). The SQL.Retrieving variable (updated by SQLInfo) is used to find out whether the result was entirely retrieved.
Remark: Depending on the process performed, the partial fetch is used to reduce the network bandwidth.
The partial fetch is automatically performed by the Java framework. The SQL.Retrieving
variable is never initialized and it always returns False
- If the pointer is positioned outside the query result, the SQL.Out variable is set to True.
- The SQL.Current variable contains the number of the current row.
- SQLTable must not be used after SQLFirst. A fatal error is generated.
