Overview
This page explains how to program Table controls based on a data file. There are multiple WLanguage functions to programmatically handle this type of Table controls.
To learn more on these functions, see the documentation. For more details, see: List of functions specific to Table controls.
Selecting, adding and modifying a row in a Table control based on a data file
A row can be selected with TableSelectPlus.
If no stored item is defined for the Table control, you can use the following syntax:
<Table control> = <Number of row to select>
To add and modify rows in the Table control (or records in the data file), follow these two steps:
  1. Add or modify the record in data the file (via a form window or page, for example).
  2. Display the Table control again:
    • WINDEVAndroidiPhone/iPad refresh the Table control.
    • WEBDEV - Server code refresh the page.
Deleting a row from a Table control based on a data file
To delete a row from the Table control based on a data file, use TableDelete. TableDelete deletes the corresponding record from the data file.
WEBDEV - Server code In WEBDEV, the page must be redisplayed.
Important: To delete a record from the data file, do not use HDelete, otherwise you may lose data.
Managing calculated columns
The calculation formula of a calculated column must be described in the "Display a row" event of a Table control.
Example of code in the "Display a row" event of the Table control:
// COL_AlertMsg: a calculated column
// The COL_AlertMsg column displays "Alert" if COL_Stock<200
IF COL_Stock < 200 THEN
COL_AlertMsg = "Alert"
ELSE
COL_AlertMsg = ""
END

By default, a calculated column is not bound to an item: the value assigned in the display code of a row is lost after scrolling vertically through the rows in a Table control.
For example, a "FOR EACH LINE" statement cannot be used to assign or retrieve the value of a calculated column for all the rows of the Table control.
If the Table control uses an in-memory data source ("Loaded in memory" option checked in the "Content" tab of the control description window), the value in the calculated columns will not be lost at runtime.
Retrieving the content of a row, column or cell

Important

The content of a row in a Table control based on a data file can be retrieved:
  • by retrieving the entire row.
  • cell by cell.

Value of the cell in the current row

The cell is identified by the name of the column. The following syntax must be used:
<Value> = <Column name>
Example:
// COL_QTY is a column of the Table control
IF COL_QTY < 10 THEN
Info("Insufficient quantity")
END

Value of a cell in a specific row

The cell is identified by the name of the column. The following syntax must be used:
<Value> = <Column name>[<Row index>]
Example:
// Adds the price found in the COL_PBT column  
// for all the order lines displayed
TotalPrice = 0
FOR Index = 1 TO TABLE_ORDER.Count
TotalPrice = TotalPrice + COL_PBT[Index]
END

Content of the current row

The following syntax must be used:
<Value> = <Table control>
You can also use the following syntax:
<Value> = <Table control>[<Table control>]

Content of row X

The following syntax must be used:
<Value>=<Table control>[<Row index>]
Remark: The index of the row is returned by TableSelect.
// Retrieves the current row in TABLE_CUSTOMER
CurrentRow = TABLE_CUSTOMER
 
// Name of the selected customer
CustName = COL_NAME[TableSelect(TABLE_CUSTOMER)]

Content of the selected rows for a multiple selection

The following syntax must be used:
<Value>=<Table control>[<Row index>]
Remark: To get the indices of the selected rows, you must use TableSelectCount and TableSelect.
// Traces the content of the selected rows
i is int
NbSelected is int = TableSelectCount(TABLE_Product)
FOR i = 1 TO NbSelected
Trace("Selected row: " + ...
TABLE_Product[TableSelect(TABLE_Product, i)])
END
 
// Equivalent to:
// FOR EACH SELECTED ROW OF TABLE_Product
// Trace("Selected row: " + TABLE_Product[TableSelect(TABLE_Product, i)])
// END

Remark: Multi-selection Table controls based on a data file are not available:
  • If the Table control contains proportional scrollbars.
  • If the Table control is "5.5 compatible".
  • In Table controls displayed by Combo Boxes.
Remark: The Multiselection property allows you to get the selection mode of a Table control.
Minimum version required
  • Version 9
