Syntax
<Control to use>.Add([<Element>])
<Control to use>: Control name
Name of the control to be used.
<Element>: Optional character string
Element that will be added into the specified control. If this parameter is not specified, an empty row is added into the List Box or Combo Box control.
This parameter can contain:
  • Carriage Return characters (CR) to add several elements.
  • tabs (TAB) to obtain a multi-element List Box control (see Notes).
  • the gStoredValue function to indicate the value to be returned when the element is selected.
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser codePHP The Carriage Return characters (CR) are supported while the tabulations (TAB) are not supported.
WEBDEV - Server code To add several consecutive spaces, non-breakable space characters must be used: Charact(160).
Remarks

List Boxes containing more than 10 000 elements

The maximum number of elements found in a List Box control is limited by the available memory (theoretical maximum: 2 billion rows). Nevertheless, filling a List Box control with an important number of elements (more than 10 000) affects performance
To add many elements to a List Box control, it is recommended to use a browsing List Box control (i.e., a list directly linked to an HFSQL data file).

Visibility/Invisibility of elements in a List Box or Combo Box control

To make an element invisible in a List Box or Combo Box control, use gStoredValue.

Equivalence

The two following syntaxes are equivalent:
<Nom du champ>.Ajoute([<Élément>])
and
<Nom du champ>[Indice] = <Élément>

Sorted/Unsorted List Box control

  • If the List Box control is sorted, the new element is inserted according to the sort order.
  • If the List Box control is not sorted, the new element is added at the end of the list.
The control type (sorted or not) is chosen during the control description ("Details" tab).

Use <List Box>.Add rather than <List Box>.Insert to add an element to a sorted List Box control.
WEBDEV - Browser code The element is added at the end of control, no matter whether the List Box control is sorted or not.
WEBDEV - Browser code

Adding an element onto the browser

When adding an element in browser code, this element is added to the page displayed in the browser only. In order for this element to be added onto the server, <List Box>.Add must be run on the server.
Calling <List Box>.Add in browser code is useful when using AJAX technology, in "Programmed AJAX" mode (via AJAXExecute or AJAXExecuteAsynchronous).
Reminder: In "Automatic and immediate AJAX" mode, all you have to do is switch the server process containing <List Box>.Add to automatic AJAX mode. That's it! No additional programming is required. For more details, see AJAX.

Miscellaneous

  • To add elements into a Table control, use TableAdd.
  • <List Box>.Add can be used on:
    • a column of type"Combo Box" in a Table control.
    • a "Table" Combo Box control.
