A developer recently asked on the Works forum if it was possible to use the table browser from within a program. Well the simple answer is "Yes". The slightly more complex answer is that since so many of the OI tools are now written in OI itself it is frequently possible to use these tools from within programs. The first thing we need to know is what the table browser window is called. It may come as a surprise to those more familiar with obscure naming conventions to find out that it is called "TABLE_BROWSER". So to call it programmatically we'd simply


atWindow = Start_Window("TABLE_BROWSER", @Window)


Of course launching it might not be enough - we might also want to populate it with the contents of a table. To do this we need to know the control names. To save you the investigative work we've included a table below :-

TABLE_BROWSER The window
TABLE_BROWSER.BTN_CANCEL The cancel button
TABLE_BROWSER.BTN_LOAD The load button
TABLE_BROWSER.BTN_OK The Ok button
TABLE_BROWSER.BTN_OPTIONS The options button
TABLE_BROWSER.DATA_TABLE The results edit table
TABLE_BROWSER.NUM_RECORDS The number of records to display
TABLE_BROWSER.SELECTION_BTN The selection button
TABLE_BROWSER.TABLENAME The table name edit field
TABLE_BROWSER.TEXT_1 The Tablename static
TABLE_BROWSER.TEXT_2 The Number of Records static



So to launch the browser and load the AVERY_LABELS table we could


 Declare Function set_Property, start_Window        

 atWindow = Start_Window("TABLE_BROWSER", @Window)
 objxArray =  atWindow : ".TABLENAME" 
 propArray = "DEFPROP"
 dataArray = "AVERY_LABELS"     

 dataArray = set_Property( objxArray, propArray, dataArray )     

 Call send_Event(atWindow : ".BTN_LOAD", "CLICK")
