LIST DATABASE Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Continuously displays information about the current database.

LIST DATABASE   [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName]   [NOCONSOLE]

Parameters

TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
Directs output from LIST DATABASE to a printer.

In Visual FoxPro, you can include the optional PROMPT clause to display a Print dialog box before printing starts. Place PROMPT immediately after TO PRINTER.

TO FILE FileName
Directs output from LIST DATABASE to the file specified with FileName. If the file already exists and SET SAFETY is ON, Visual FoxPro displays a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file.
NOCONSOLE
Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.

Remarks

Use DBGETPROP( ) to return additional information about the current database.

Example

This example creates a database named people. A table named friends is created and is automatically added to the database. DISPLAY TABLES is used to display the tables in the database, and LIST DATABASES is used to list information about the tables in the database.

CREATE DATABASE people
CREATE TABLE friends (FirstName C(20), LastName C(20))
CLEAR
DISPLAY TABLES  && Displays tables in the database
LIST DATABASE  && Lists table information
