TakeKey (process an alerted keystroke:StepLocatorClass)

Top  Previous  Next



The TakeKey method processes an alerted keystroke for the LIST control and returns a value indicating whether the browse list display must change.


By default, all alphanumeric keys are alerted for LIST controls.


The TakeKey method primes the FreeElement property with the appropriate search value, then returns one (1) if a new search is required or returns zero (0) if no new search is required. A search is required only if the keystroke is a valid search character.

Return Data Type:     BYTE
