Discussion

The CROSSLEVEL_RECORD_LIST() function uses the .RECNO_LIST_GET() method to set the current filter for the current table and retrieve the specified set of records.

Example 

The following script was put under a button on the Customer Information form of AlphaSports. It sets the current filter to all records where the Lastname field has a value greater than "M".

dim frm as P
dim lst as C
frm = form.view("Customer Information")
lst = crosslevel_record_list("Lastname > \"M\"")
? lst
= "2 3 4 6 7 9 11 15 16 17 21 23 25 28 31 35 36 37 40 41 44 46 49 50 53 57 60 "
