Stored procedures
Adds the record found in memory into a data file (standard database found on Mobile Device or ".CDB" database). The indexes corresponding to all the keys used in the file are automatically updated.
After the call to cdbAdd, the added record becomes the current record. By default, the current browse is not affected.
Caution: From Windows Mobile 5, the access to a standard database (tasks, contacts, appointments, ...) can no longer be performed from a Windows application (and therefore from a standard WINDEV application).

Example
// Add a record into Customer file
cdbWriteCol("MyDatabase", "Customer", "LastName", "Smith")
cdbWriteCol("MyDatabase", "Customer", "FirstName", "Paul")
cdbWriteCol("MyDatabase", "Customer", "City", "Avignon")
ResAdd = cdbAdd("MyDatabase", "Customer")
// Has a problem occurred?
IF ResAdd = False THEN Error(ErrorInfo())
// Standard "Contacts" database
// Add a record into the Contacts file
cdbContact.Name = "Smith"
cdbContact.FirstName = "Paul"
cdbContact.DisplayedName = "Paul Smith"
cdbContact.HomeCity = "Avignon"
ResAdd = cdbAdd("", cdbContact)
// Has a problem occurred?
IF ResAdd = False THEN Error(ErrorInfo())
Syntax
<Result> = cdbAdd(<Database Name> , <Data File>)
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the function was successful,
  • False otherwise. To find out the error details, use ErrorInfo.
<Database Name>: Character string (with quotes)
  • Name of database that was opened by cdbOpen,
  • Empty string ("") to handle one of the standard databases found on Mobile Device (tasks, contacts, ...).
<Data File>: Character string (with quotes) or constant
Data file to use. This parameter corresponds to:
  • the name of data file to use.
  • the constant corresponding to one of the standard databases:
    cdbContact"Contacts" database
    cdbTask"Tasks" database
    cdbAppointment"Appointments" database
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), cdbAdd handles the last data file used by the last function for managing databases on Mobile Device (starting with cdb).
Remarks

Default values when adding an appointment

If the Status and FullDay items are not filled in the CDB structure before the record is added, the following default values are automatically taken into account:
  • Status = 2 (corresponds to the busy status)
  • FullDay = 2 (corresponds to False)
