_DBRecNo( ) API Library Routine

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Returns the number of the current record in the table open in the specified work area.

long _DBRecNo(int workarea)
int workarea;               /* Work area. */

Remarks

If no table is open in the specified work area, _DBRecNo( ) returns a negative integer whose absolute value is a Visual FoxPro error number. If the record pointer is at the end of file, _DBRecNo( ) returns a number that is 1 greater than that returned by _DBRecCount( ).

For more information on how to create an API library and integrate it with Visual FoxPro, see Accessing the Visual FoxPro API.

Example

The following example provides functionality similar to that of the Visual FoxPro RECNO( ) function.

Visual FoxPro Code

SET LIBRARY TO DBRECNO 
DO CreateTest
GO 3
? DBRECNO()
GO 6
? DBRECNO()
USE
? DBRECNO()  && returns -119

PROCEDURE CreateTest
   CREATE TABLE test (ABC C(20))
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 1"
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 2"
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 3"
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 4"
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 5"
   APPEND BLANK
   REPLACE ABC WITH "This is record 6"
   GO TOP
RETURN

C Code

#include <pro_ext.h>

FAR Example(ParamBlk FAR *parm)
{
   _RetInt(_DBRecNo(-1), 10);
}

FoxInfo myFoxInfo[] = {
   {"DBRECNO", (FPFI) Example, 0, ""},
};
FoxTable _FoxTable = {
   (FoxTable FAR *) 0, sizeof(myFoxInfo)/sizeof(FoxInfo), myFoxInfo
};
