If autocommit is on (TRUE), the database commits changes automatically after each SQL command. If autocommit is off (FALSE), then the database commits changes only when you issue a COMMIT command. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter, and Sql.SetParameter functions. You can only use DBP_AUTOCOMMIT with databases which support this feature. Please refer to the appropriate database manuals for more information.

Use this constant to either get or set the status of a database parameter indicating the current status of the FETCHTHROUGH feature. FETCHTHROUGH enables you to retrieve rows directly from the database server instead of from the client's input message buffer, thereby ensuring that you get the most up-to-date data. If FETCHTHROUGH is on (TRUE), the application fetches data one row at a time from the backend. Using this feature increases response time, so you should only use this feature when you need to get the most up-to-date information. If FETCHTHROUGH is off (FALSE), the application fetches data from the client's input message buffer whenever possible. This is the default. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter, and Sql.SetParameter, functions. You can only use this feature against SQLBase.

After the specified time has elapsed, SQLBase rolls back the transaction. The default timeout value is 300 seconds. Valid time out values are: 1-1800 Wait 1 second to 30 minutes -1 Wait forever 0 Never wait; immediately return a time out error. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter and Sql.SetParameter functions. You can only use this constant against databases which support the setting of lock wait timeout values. Please refer to the appropriate database manuals for more information.

DBP_NOPREBUILD

Use this constant to either get or set the value of a database parameter which specifies whether result sets should be pre-built on remote databases when the application is in result set mode and is using the Release Locks isolation level. Pre-building a result set provides the advantages of being able to release shared locks and returning control to the client. The disadvantage of pre-building a result set is that the application must wait while the result set is being built. If NOPREBUILD is on (TRUE), result sets are not pre-built. A shared lock remains on the current page. This is the default setting. If NOPREBUILD is off (FALSE), result sets are pre-built on the remote database. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter and Sql.SetParameter functions. You can only use this feature against SQLBase.

DBP_PRESERVE

Use this constant to get or set the value of the database parameter that specifies whether cursor context preservation is on or off. If cursor-context preservation is on (TRUE), a COMMIT does not destroy an active result set (cursor context). This enables an application to maintain its position after a COMMIT, INSERT, or UPDATE. The cursor context is not preserved after an isolation level change. The context is preserved after a ROLLBACK if both of the following are true: The application is in the Release Locks (RL) isolation level. A DDL operation was not performed. If cursor-context preservation is off (FALSE), a COMMIT does destroy an active result set. Cursor context preservation is lost. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter, and Sql.SetParameter functions.

DBP_ROLLBACKONTIMEOUT

Use this constant to either get or set the value of a database parameter which specifies the rollback status when a lock timeout occurs. If the parameter is TRUE, the entire transaction rolls back when a lock timeout occurs. If it is FALSE, only the current command rolls back on a lock timeout. Use this constant with the Sql.GetParameter, and Sql.SetParameter. The rollbackontimeout feature can only be used against some databases. Please see the appropriate database manuals for more information.

The data field is created. 3. The child table window is created. 4. The child table window's column is created. Once all this is done, sends a SAM_Create message to the top-level window and all of its children. Next, makes the form window and its children visible. Finally, sends a SAM_CreateComplete message to the child table window, and then to the form window (the top-level window). By processing the SAM_CreateComplete message, you can do initialization tasks that depend on the state or contents of child windows.

The parameter for Sal.DDEGetExecuteString is the lParam of the SAM_DDE_ClientExecute message, which points to the command string. After calling Sal.DDEGetExecuteString, the server can parse the command string to determine the action to perform. The server can send data or some other response to the client by calling Sal.DDESendToClient. The wParam for the SAM_DDE_ClientExecute message contains the window handle of the client. The server uses wParam in the third parameter of Sal.DDESendToClient to send the data or response back to the same client.

Ignores SAM_ReportStart's return value. Message Variables hWndForm Unused. hWndItem Unused. wParam Window handle of the window that started the report. IParam Unused.

SAM_RowHeaderClick

SAM_RowHeaderClick is sent to a table window when you click on a row in the row header. This message is not sent unless Sal.TblDefineRowHeader has been used to define a row header. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the table window. hWndItem Window Handle of the table window. wParam Unused. IParam Context row of the table window.

SAM_RowHeaderDoubleClick

SAM_RowHeaderDoubleClick is sent to a table window when you double-click on a row in the row header. Only sends this message when TBL_RowHdr_Visible is TRUE (which is the default). If TBL_RowHdr_Visible is FALSE, you can set it to TRUE by calling Sal.TblDefineRowHeader. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the table window. hWndItem Window Handle of the table window. wParam Unused. lParam Context row of the table window

SAM_RowSetContext

Sends this message to a TableWindow when the user changes its focus row. If you process this message but do not execute a Return statement, performs its default processing. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the top-level window. hWndItem Window handle of the object. wParam Unused. lParam Unused.

SAM_RowValidate

SAM_RowValidate is sent to a table window before the table window's focus row changes, letting the application validate the contents of the row. The SAM_RowValidate message is sent regardless of the current row flags or cell edited flags. It is sent only when you change the focus row, not when you remove the focus from the table window. If the application returns VALIDATE_Cancel, the focus remains on the current row. If the application returns VALIDATE_Ok, the table window behaves as normal and changes the focus row. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the table window. hWndItem Window handle of the table window. wParam Unused. lParam Table window context row (first row is 0, second row is 1, and so on).

SAM_ScrollBar

SAM_ScrollBar is sent to a horizontal or vertical scroll bar when you move within the scroll bar using either the mouse or the keyboard. The application must check SAM_ScrollBar's wParam variable in order to determine which of the following movements occurred: SB_Bottom SB_LineDown SB_LineUp SB_PageDown SB_PageUp SB_ThumbPosition SB_ThumbTrack SB_Top

SAM_SetFocus

SAM_SetFocus is sent to a check box, combo box, data field, list box, multi line text field, push button, radio button, scroll bar, or table window column when it receives the input focus. Process the SAM_SetFocus message and initialize actions to take place when the user enters an object. Avoid calling functions that can change the focus (such as Sal.MessageBox, Sal.ModalDialog, Sal.SendMsg) while processing a SAM_SetFocus message. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the top-level window. hWndItem Window handle of the object receiving the message. wParam Handle of the window losing the focus. lParam Unused.

SAM_SqlError

Sent to the Application Actions section of the outline when a SQL function fails. If you process this message, you can control how the application responds to SQL errors on a global level instead of using the default error processing which displays a dialog box with the error number and error text. Call Sql.ExtractArgs to get the error code, error position, and Sql Handle from the wParam and lParam. You can also use When SqlError in any actions section of the outline to process an error at a local level. Message Variables hWndForm Always hWndNULL. hWndItem Not used. wParam Sql Handle. lParam SQL Error code and position

SAM_TabChange

This message is fired when the user navigates to a different tab page in a tab control. wParam = Index of the formerly active tab page. lParam = Index of the newly activated tab page. Return False to prevent the tab control from switching the active tab.

SAM_TblDoDetails

Sends this message to a table window when the user or code changes its focus row. If you process this message but do not execute a Return statement, performs its default processing. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the top-level window. hWndItem Window handle of the object. wParam Unused. IParam Unused.

SAM_Timer

Sent to the Application Actions, top-level window and its children, MDI window every n milliseconds, as specified by Sal.TimerSet. Check the wParam to find the identifier of the timer that sent the message. This way, one object can process SAM_Timer messages from more than one timer. Important: Timers are a limited resource in Windows, so use them sparingly. Message Variables hWndForm Window handle of the top-level window. hWndItem Window handle of the object receiving the message. wParam Timer ID. IParam Unused.

SAM_User

This constant represents the value at which user-defined messages should start. The next consecutive user-defined message would be SAM_User+1.

SAM_Validate

Sent to a Data field, multi line field, combo box, and column when the user changes the value of the object and then moves the focus away from the object. The user can move the focus by several actions such as tabbing to another object, clicking another object, or using a mnemonic or accelerator to activate another object. When a user changes one of these objects, the object's field edit flag changes to TRUE. You can get and set the field edit flag using Sal.QueryFieldEdit and Sal.SetFieldEdit. SAM_Validate validates the data that the user entered or changed. Whenever the user changes an object, sends SAM_Validate. If an object is valid, return VALIDATE_Ok. The value you return from SAM_Validate processing controls whether the focus changes. Does not send SAM_Validate when the user selects a menu item (a menu selection does not change the focus). You can force to send SAM_Validate by calling Sal.SendValidateMsg by calling Sal.SendValidateMsg in the menu actions of a menu item. This forces field validation before processing a menu selection (without changing the focus). Sal.SendValidateMsg returns the value that the SAM_Validate message processing returns. To Control the action that happens return one of these values: VALIDATE_Cancel, VALIDATE_Ok or VALIDATE_OkClearFlag. Note: Unless you return VALIDATE_Cancel SAM_FieldEdit will also be send to the object.

SAM_XMLRowDone

This message is sent to a table window when a new row of data has just been added to that table window during a call to Sal.TblPopulateFromXML(). hWnForm: Handle of the table window. hWndItem: Handle of the table window. WParam: Unused. lParam: Row number of the populated row.

SB_Bottom

The SAM_ScrollBar message sends this constant (as the wParam variable) to indicate that you have scrolled to the scroll bar's end (maximum).

SB_LineDown

The SAM_ScrollBar message sends this constant (as the wParam variable) to indicate that you have scrolled to the scroll bar's end (maximum).

SB_LineUp

SB_ThumbPosition

The SAM_ScrollBar message sends this constant (as the wParam variable) to indicate that you dragged the scroll box to a new position within the scroll bar. Specify SB_ThumbPosition if you want the client area repainted when you release the Thumb. (Compare to SB_ThumbTrack).

SB_ThumbTrack

The SAM_ScrollBar message sends this constant (as the wParam variable) to indicate that you dragged the scroll box to a new position. Specify SB_ThumbTrack if you want the client area updated every time you click on and drag the thumb of the scroll bar. (Compare to SB_ThumbPosition).

SB_Top

The SAM_ScrollBar message sends this constant (as the wParam variable) to indicate that you scrolled to the beginning (minimum) of the scroll bar.

strArgArray

This is a dynamic array which contains the command line arguments.

STRING_Null

Use this constant to set a String to a null value or to check if a String value is a null.

TBL_Adjust

Sal.TblDeleteRow uses this constant to coordinate the deletion of a table window row with the deletion of a row from the underlying result set. TBL_Adjust ensures automatic correspondence between the lParam (selected row) of the SAM_FetchRow message and the row number in the result set. It automatically re-synchronizes the row number in the result set with the row number in the table window. Using TBL_Adjust prevents blank rows in the table window. When the user deletes with TBL_Adjust the row number is remembered. All actions with the table, fetching, row context, row searching then adjusts the row number to be insync with the sql result set row number hiding those that are deleted. If you were to just delete from the result set, the next time that table row were asked to fetch it's returns would be null (deleted).

TBL_AutoScroll

The Sal.TblScroll function uses this constant to scroll the table window to the specified row and column. TBL_AutoScroll scrolls the table window as needed until the row becomes visible. This is the default and only behavior supported by the Sal.TblScroll function.

TBL_Error

Returns this constant when a table window function is unsuccessful.

TBL_FillAll

The Sal.TblPopulate function uses this constant to populate an entire table window at once.

TBL_FillAllBackground

The Sal.TblPopulate function uses this constant to populate the visible portion of a table window first, then return control to the application and continue fetching rows in the background. Fetches subsequent rows at a rate of one row every 1/4 of a second. Once all rows have been fetched, the table window receives a SAM_FetchDone message.

TBL_FillNormal

The Sal.TblPopulate function uses this constant to populate the visible portion of the table window first, then populates new rows as they are scrolled into view.

TBL_Flag_EditLeftJustify

This flag instructs to left-justify cells while they are being edited. By default, cell editing behavior reflects the column definition. For example, when you edit a right-justified column, right- justifies the text. With center-justified and right-justified columns, this means that you are not able to enter more text than fits in the cell. Use TBL_Flag_EditLeftJustify with the Sal.TblQueryTableFlags and Sal.TblSetTableFlags functions.

TBL_Flag_GrayedHeaders

This flag instructs to paint column headings and row headings with color and shading similar to push buttons. Use TBL_Flag_GrayedHeaders with the Sal.TblQueryTableFlags and Sal.TblSetTableFlags functions.

TBL_Flag_ShowVScroll

Not supported.

TBL_Flag_ShowWaitCursor

Not supported.

TBL_Flag_SingleSelection

This flag ensures that the user can only select one row at a time from a table window. Use TBL_Flag_SingleSelection with the Sal.TblQueryTableFlags and Sal.TblSetTableFlags functions.

TBL_Flag_SizableCols

This flag lets the user drag-size columns. Use TBL_Flag_SizableCols with the Sal.TblQueryTableFlags and Sal.TblSetTableFlags functions.

TBL_MaxRow

This constant represents the maximum or last row in a table window. Use it with the Sal.TblSetRange (to define a dynamic scroll range), Sal.TblFindPrevRow (to find the last row in a table), and Sal.TblInsertRow functions.

TBL_MinRow

This constant represents the minimum or first row in a table window. Use it with the Sal.TblFindNextRow (to find the first row in a table), Sal.TblInsertRow and Sal.TblSetRange functions.

TBL_MinSplitRow

This constant identifies the minimum row number of a row in the lower half of a split window. For example, you can use it with the Sal.TblSetFocusRow function to set the focus to the first row in the lower half of a split window.

TBL_NoAdjust

The Sal.TblDeleteRow function uses this constant to coordinate the deletion of a table window row with the deletion of a row from the underlying result set. TBL_NoAdjust does not re-synchronize the row number of the row in the result set with the row number of the row in the table window. When you delete a row from a table window, a blank row displays in its place. When the user deletes with TBL_NoAdjust it simply deletes that row number, all rows above (higher) the deleted are now one less, that is not adjusted for the result set. The row number is not going to be in sync with a result set now. A side effect of this is that if you get a fetch message for the row number that was deleted your code will get called and null values will be returned (the result set row is deleted).

TBL_NoMoreRows

This constant is returned to the Sal.TblFetchRow function when can not fetch the specified row and there are no more rows to fetch after the specified row.

TBL_RowDeleted

This constant is returned to the Sal.TblFetchRow function when can not fetch the specified row because another transaction deleted it.

TBL_RowFetched

This constant is returned to the Sal.TblFetchRow function when the row is successfully fetched.

TBL_RowHdr_MarkEdits

This flag displays a symbol in the edit indicator column of a row that means the setting of the row flag: A check mark means that the row has been modified (ROW_Edited). An X means that the row is marked for deletion (ROW_MarkDeleted). A right arrow means that this is a new row ( ROW_New). Use TBL_RowHdr_MarkEdits with the Sal.TblDefineRowHeader and Sal.TblQueryRowHeader functions.

TBL_RowHdr_RowsSizable

This flag lets the user drag-size the row height. Use TBL_RowHdr_RowsSizable with the Sal.TblDefineRowHeader and Sal.TblQueryRowHeader functions.

TBL_RowHdr_ShareColor

This flag sets the row header color to the text color of the cells in hWndCol. Otherwise, the row header uses the table window's default text color. Use TBL_RowHdr_ShareColor with the Sal.TblDefineRowHeader and Sal.TblQueryRowHeader functions.

TBL_RowHdr_Sizable

This flag lets the user drag-size the row header. Use TBL_RowHdr_Sizable with the Sal.TblDefineRowHeader and Sal.TblQueryRowHeader functions.

TBL_RowHdr_Visible

This flag makes the row header visible. Use TBL_RowHdr_Visible with the Sal.TblDefineRowHeader and Sal.TblQueryRowHeader functions.

The Sal.TblScroll function uses this constant to describe the position of the row to which you are scrolling. TBL_ScrollBottom scrolls the row to the bottom of the table window.

TBL_ScrollTop

The SalTblScroll function uses this constant to describe the position of the row to which you are scrolling. TBL_ScrollTop scrolls the row to the top of the table window.

TBL_SetFirstRow

This constant is used by Sal.TblSetRow to change the current focus row in a table window to the first row.
