Move to a record specified by record number.

Namespace:  XSharp.RT
Assembly:  XSharp.RT (in XSharp.RT.dll) Version: 2.4a
Syntax
 FUNCTION DbGoto(
	uRecID AS USUAL,
	uArea AS USUAL
) AS LOGIC
View Source

Parameters

uRecID
Type: Usual
The record number to go to.
If <uRecID> does not exist, the work area is positioned to LastRec() + 1, and both EOF() and BOF() return TRUE.
uArea
Type: Usual
Specifies the work area name or number for a table on which the operation must be performed.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
TRUE if successful; otherwise, FALSE.
Remarks
By default, this function operates on the currently selected work area.   It can be made to operate on an unselected work area by specifying it within an aliased expression or by calling the that accepts a workarea parameter (a workarea number or alias ). DbGoTo() performs the same function as the GO command.
For more information, refer to the GO command.
Tip Tip
Logical records: DBGoTo() does not respect logical visibility.  That is, if the specified record exists, it will become the current record regardless of any order or filter condition. Shared mode: For a shared file, moving to a different record can cause updates to the current record to become visible to other processes.  
Examples
The following example uses DbGoTo() to iteratively process every fourth record:
X#
1DBUseArea(TRUE, "DBFNTX", "sales", "Sales", TRUE)
2// Toggle every fourth record
3DO WHILE !EOF()
4    DBGoTo(RecNo() + 4)
5    Sales->Group := "Bear"
6ENDDO
