Function Browse() Foundation
Displays data records from a work area in a window.
Browse( [<nTop>], [<nLeft>], [<nBottom>], [<nRight>] ) --> lSuccess
The return value of Browse() is .T. (true) if a file is open in the indicated work area, otherwise it is .F. (false).
The function Browse() is purely a compatibility function which makes a DBF file browser and editor available. Instead of Browse() the capabilities of a TBrowse object should be utilized (see function TBrowseNew() or TBrowseDb()).
The dialog function Browse() provides a mechanism to display and edit DBF files. When the function is used without the alias operator it displays the data in the current work area. All fields of a DBF file are displayed. Pressing the return key switches to editing mode and the current field can be edited. The function Browse() is terminated with the Esc key. If a user is at the last data record and attempts to move to the next data record, Browse() automatically appends a new data record into the file.
Cursor navigation is performed with the same keys as DbEdit() (see DbEdit()). Browse() displays a status line with the current record number, the deleted status of the record, whether at the beginning of the file and whether a new data record has just been added.
