Specifies that an error will not be caused if you attempt to insert a record that has the same key as a record that already exists.
'Inserts an existing row in the test table
CF1.OpenTable hTable, CLng(frmCfrontTest.Text1(cf.TableNoCreate).Text)
hRecord = CF1.AllocRec(hTable)
CF1.FindRec hTable, hRecord, "-"
tmpVar2 = CF1.InsertRec(hTable, hRecord)
If tmpVar2 = False Then
logWr "AllowRecordExists OK"
logWr "AllowRecordExists failed"
This function only allows the error to occur for one function call. It must be set each time you want to use it (as opposed to disabling the error for your application as a whole).
This function works as if HideError had been set to TRUE before a function that tries to insert a record is called, and HideError is reset to FALSE afterwards. This means that it is shorthand for a construction like the following (where Cf is a C/FRONT OCX object):
Cf.HideError = TRUE
Cf.HideError = FALSE
Using this function also means that LastError cannot be used to retrieve an error code. You have to use the return value of the function, as follows:
Ret = Cf.FunctionThatInsertsRecord
If Ret <> TRUE Then
' handle error
AllowRecordExists affects the InsertRec function.
