read event

Hi , which property I can use to tell if there is a record has been read? I mean when I have a databound form, then I type sth in the field which trigger the read event, how do I know whether OI does actually reads a existing record or the key doesn't actually exist in the table? I can tell from other indirect ways but I want to use a formal property to tell.


  • Technically speaking, @RECORD isn't a property but rather a system variable. As Barry notes, this variable will be populated with the content of the record from the table. However, I'm gathering you are looking to trap when the user enters an invalid key so that you can perform some kind of process, such as a search routine. Is that correct? If so, then there are some alternative ways of intercepting the data that might give you a better user experience.
