Ask, VIRTUAL

The Ask method initiates the event processing (ACCEPT loop) for the report procedure. This virtual method handles any special processing immediately before or after the report procedure's event processing.

Member of: ReportManager

Implementation:

The Run method calls the Ask method. The Ask method calls the PARENT.Ask method to manage the ACCEPT loop for the report procedure.

Example:

MyReporter.Ask PROCEDURE

CODE

SETCURSOR(CURSOR:Wait)              !special pre event handling code

PARENT.Ask                          !process events (ACCEPT)

SETCURSOR()                         !special post event handling code
