Populates a Table control programmatically with the records from a data file, HFSQL view or query (query created in the query editor or with HExecuteSQLQuery
The Table control populated programmatically must contain the columns to be bound to the items. FileToMemoryTable will:
- clear the Table control.
- bind the columns of the Table control to the items of a data file, HFSQL view or query. The items will be bound according to the logical order defined in the file.
- populate the Table control with the data from a data file or query.
CAUTION: This operation may take quite a long time and it may overflow the memory if the data file is very large.
