cdbCancelSearch (Function)
In French: cdbAnnuleRecherche
Cancels the current search criterion (standard database found on the Mobile Device or ".CDB" database). The file browse can continue from the current record, without using any search criterion. The browsed records will not necessarily correspond to the search condition.
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
// Find the first record for which the customer name is Smith
ResSearch = cdbReadSeek("MyDatabase", "Customer", "Name", "Smith")
// Stop the search
cdbCancelSearch("MyDatabase", "Customer")
// First name of this first customer found
Info("The first name of this customer is: " + cdbCol("MyDatabase", "Customer", "FirstName"))
Syntax
<Result> = cdbCancelSearch(<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 (""), cdbCancelSearch handles the last file used by the last function for managing the Mobile Device databases (starting with the letters cdb).
