Example
// Save the data of the Looper control "LOOP_ProductLooper"
LOOP_ProductLooper.Save()
Syntax
<Looper control>.Save()
<Looper control>: Control name
Name of Looper control to use. The current row of this Looper control will be recorded in the linked data file.
Remarks

Updating the data file linked to the Looper control

<Looper>.Save saves the current row of Looper control in the data file linked to the Looper control. The items are automatically assigned with the values of associated controls in the current row.
When a modification is performed, <Looper>.Save replaces the former values by the new ones. The items not found in the Looper control are not modified.
Caution:
  • <Looper>.Save only supports the data file associated with the Looper control. If some attributes/controls are linked to items found in other data files, these data files are not automatically managed.
  • The "Image" attributes/controls are not saved by <Looper>.Save. To modify the content of the memo associated with the image (rare case), use HLinkMemo.

Cascading input and update of linked data file

If the cascading input is enabled, the data file linked to the browsing Looper control is automatically modified when the user goes to the next row <Looper>.Add, <Looper>.AddLine, <Looper>.Insert, <Looper>.InsertLine, <Looper>.Modify and <Looper>.ModifyLine). <Looper>.Save is useless.
If the cascading input is not enabled, the data file linked to the browsing Looper control is not modified. To write the added row or the modified row into the linked data file, <Looper>.Save must be called after the function used to perform the addition or the modification.
Remarks:

Re-displaying the saved row

After the call to <Looper>.Save, the saved row may "disappear". This "disappearance" is due to the value of the search key for the added or modified record.
To avoid this problem, redisplay the Looper control with <Looper>.Display.

Locking and updating the data file

If the data file is locked in the current process, <Looper>.Save saves the current row and unlocks the data file.

Duplicates and referential integrity

  • If the management of duplicates is enabled (HSetDuplicates), HErrorDuplicates must be checked after the execution of <Looper>.Save to check the key uniqueness.
  • If the management of referential integrity is enabled (HSetIntegrity), HErrorIntegrity must be checked after the execution of <Looper>.Save to check the referential integrity.

Use <Looper>.Save to reduce the number of lines of code

<Looper>.Save reduces several lines of code. This single line allows you to avoid assigning the item variables one by one.
For example, the following code:
Customer.Name = ATT_Name
Customer.FirstName = ATT_FirstName
Customer.Address = ATT_Address
Customer.ZC = ATT_ZC
Customer.City = ATT_City
HAdd(Customer)
is replaced by the following line:
LOOP_LooperCustomer.Save()
