The name of the table or set to display.
Optional. Default = .T. (all records). A character filter expression that evaluates to a logical value. Selects records from the table.
Optional. Default = record order. A character order expression that sorts selected records.
The description that you assign to the query that Alpha Anywhere creates when the form is opened.
Optional. Default = Record order, ascending, not unique. Controls whether Alpha Anywhere uses an index, a new query list, or an existing query list to satisfy a query. This string can contain one or more of the following codes:
Builds a query list even if an index matches the query definition.
The descending order option puts the records in descending alphabetical order or, for a numeric field, from highest to lowest value.
Temporary query. Alpha Anywhere will automatically delete this query if necessary if building a new query would cause it to run out of query slots. there are a maximum of 16 query slots.
The unique option includes only unique records in the query list.
Builds a new query list even though a) an existing query list exists, and b) an existing Index exists (both of which, Alpha Anywhere could have used rather than running a new query).
Use an index even if an existing query exists (which Alpha Anywhere would otherwise have used in preference to the index).
The I flag is obsolete. It was used by Alpha Five V1 to indicate that the index should be case-insensitive. However since V2, Alpha Anywhere automatically builds all indexes as Case-insensitive. It is documented because in some situations, the Script Recorder will show Xbasic code that includes the "I" flag.
Logical. Optional. Default = .F. Specifies whether the Show All icon that appears on the toolbar is enabled. .T. = Icon enabled. .F. = Icon not enabled.
The A5_OPEN_DEFAULT_FORM() function displays the default form for the table or set.
a5_open_default_form("customer", "lastname > " + quote("M"), "lastname")
