how to start moving with arrows in a browser

#1 Post by alepap »

Hi

How to start moving with the arrows in a browser without having to click on a cell first?

Here is a sample. When the browser opens, I cant use the arrows. But if I click on a cell, than I can use the arrows to move around the bowser cells.


Code: Select all

FUNCTION XSample_46

/*
Cut and Paste

This sample demonstrates cutting a value from a row/column in
an array browse and pasting it to another row/column.  The value
in the cell that is cut is swapped with the value in the cell
pasted.  Use the right mouse button.
*/

LOCAL GetList := {}, oBrowse, aSchedule, i, j, oMenuBrow

aSchedule := Array(24)
FOR i := 1 TO 24
  aSchedule[i] := Array(8)
  aSchedule[i,1] := Str(i,2) + ':00'
  FOR j := 2 TO 8
     aSchedule[i,j] := Space(25)
  NEXT
NEXT

aSchedule[6,2] := Pad('John Smith',25)
aSchedule[8,3] := Pad('Laurie Jones',25)
aSchedule[9,4] := Pad('Tom Walker',25)
aSchedule[7,5] := Pad('Nancy Buffet',25)

@ 3,1 DCBROWSE oBrowse DATA aSchedule ;
      SIZE 80,14.5 FREEZELEFT {1} ;
      EDIT xbeBRW_ItemSelected MODE DCGUI_BROWSE_EDITDOWN ;
      DELETE xbeK_DEL ;
      INSERT xbeK_INS ;
      RBSELECT

RETURN nil

/* -------------------------- */

STATIC FUNCTION _XSample_46 ( oBrowse, nMode, oMenuBrow )

IF nMode = 1
   aChildList := oBrowse:ChildList()
   FOR i := 2 TO 8
      oXbp := oBrowse:getColumn(i)
      oCellGroup := oXbp:dataArea

      /* -- Attach menu to each cellgroup -- */
      oCellGroup:RbDown  := DC_MergeBlocks(oCellGroup:RbDown,;
              { |x,y,z| oMenuBrow:PopUp ( nil, x, 1 , ;
                XBPMENU_PU_DEFAULT + XBPMENU_PU_MOUSE_RBDOWN  ) })
   NEXT
ELSEIF nMode = 2  // Cut
  nRow := oBrowse:cargo[4]

  cClipData := oBrowse:cargo[5,nRow,nCol]
  oBrowse:cargo[5,nRow,nCol] := Space(25)
  oBrowse:refreshCurrent()

  oBrowse:refreshCurrent()
ENDIF

RETURN nil

DCREAD GUI SETFOCUS @oBrowse

OR

DCREAD GUI EVAL {||SetAppFocus(oBrowse)}
