Stored procedures
Inserts a row into:
  • a Table control,
  • a TreeView Table control,
// Insertion des éléments "Paul" et "Dubois"
// dans la cinquième ligne de la champ Table "TABLE_TableClient"
ResInsertion = TableInsert(TABLE_TableClient, "Paul" + TAB + "Dubois", 5)
<Result> = TableInsert(<Table control> [, <Row> [, <Subscript>]])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the element was inserted,
  • False otherwise.
<Table control>: Control name
Name of the control to be used. This control can correspond to:
  • a Table control.
  • a TreeView Table control.
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the control used will be the control to which the current event belongs.
<Row>: Optional character string
Row to insert. This row has the following format:
<Elément de la colonne1> + TAB + <Elément de la colonne2> + 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 the 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.
TableInsert can be used on:
  • a browsing or memory control,
  • a single-selection or multi-selection 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_TableClient, "Dubois" + TAB + "Pierre" + 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_TableCalcul, (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 with the TableSort function, the inserted row is positioned in the control according to the current sort and not 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.

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).


To add rows to the end of an Table control or hierarchical table, use the TableAddLine function.

Inserting images

To insert an image into a Table control:
    Remark: The column must be an Image column otherwise the added image will not be displayed properly.
