View a List of Tables . . .

View a List of Tables . . .

View a List of Tables . . .

I have this in a small method in Paradox 8.


tblname =          "Type the Table Name To Be Queried..."
tblName.view    ("Which Table?")

Is there a way to view a list of tables in a folder and select a table name to insert here?

Thanks . . .  Rick

RE: View a List of Tables . . .


I think the code below should suffice.  I have tried it on version 8.  I have commented the code to show what each line is doing.  Feel free to strip the comments out when you paste into your application.

I hope that this helps.


    tblName             String
    tblView          TableView

fileBrowserEx(tblName) ;calls up the Windows file browser,
                       ;and waits for you to choose a      
                       ;Paradox table. variable tblName
               ;stores the table chosen

if isTable(tblName) then
   tblView.open(tblName) ;open a Table window for the
                         ;table name stored in the variable

RE: View a List of Tables . . .

That looks pretty kewl.

I'll try it and see what I get.

I didn't know about fileBrowserEx

Thanks . . . Rick
