A pointer variable that contains the result of the operation. Result has the following properties:
- . HasError
.T. = indexes could not be created .F. = indexes were created
- . ErrorText
If .HasError is .T., then contains the error message.
- . Xbasic
Contains the Xbasic code if Show_Xbasic is .T.
The name of the table containing the indexes to be created.
A list of index definitions created by GET_INDEX_DEFINITIONS().
Logical. Optional. Default = .F. .T. = Show Xbasic code generated to create indexes.
Creates indexes for a table based on a CRLF definition string. Definition string is of format: tagname|OrderExpn|FilterExpn|Flags. Tip: The format string can be created using Get_Index_Definitions().
Creates indexes for a table based on a CR-LF delimited list created by GET_INDEX_DEFINITIONS().
The following example retrieves index definitions from a table, then (after they were manually deleted), recreates the indexes.
list = Get_Index_Definitions("index_entries") ? create_indexes("index_entries", list, .t.) = ErrorText = "" HasError = .F. Xbasic = t.index_create_begin("Entry","PADR(LEFT(ENTRY,40),40,\" \") + PADR(LEFT(SUBENTRY,40),40,\" \") + PADR(LEFT(TOPIC,40),40, \" \")","","") t.index_add("Index_Id","INDEX_ID","","U") t.index_create_end()
