Sets the current row in the specified list.


   name STRING,
   row INTEGER )
  1. name is the name of the screen record, see Identifying screen-arrays in dialog methods.
  2. row is the new row in the array.


Use the setCurrentRow() method to change the current row in an INPUT ARRAY or DISPLAY ARRAY list. You must pass the name of the screen array to identify the list, and the new row number.
  DISPLAY ARRAY custlist TO sa_custlist.*
  ON ACTION goto_x 
    CALL DIALOG.setCurrentRow("sa_custlist", x)

Moving to a different row with setCurrentRow() will not trigger control blocks such as BEFORE ROW / AFTER ROW, as the fgl_set_arr_curr() built-in function does.

The setCurrentRow() method will not set the focus; you need to use NEXT FIELD to set the focus to a list. (This works with DISPLAY ARRAY as well as with INPUT ARRAY.)

If the passed row index is lower than 1, the first row will be selected. If the row index is greater than the total number of rows, the last row will be selected.

If the new current row is not in the current view, the dialog will adapt the list offset to make the new current row visible.

If multi-row selection is enabled, all selection flags of rows are cleared, and the new current row gets automatically selected.

A setCurrentRow(screen-array,row-index) in a paged mode DISPLAY ARRAY will subsequently trigger the ON FILL BUFFER code, if the requested row is not in the current page of visible rows.

If DISPLAY ARRAY using ON FILL BUFFER was started with COUNT=-1, and the row-index provided by setCurrentRow() is greater as the actual number of rows already fetched through ON FILL BUFFER, setCurrentRow() will have no effect. The actual number of rows must be provided with DIALOG.setArrayLength(screen-array,count) where count >= row-index, before calling setCurrentRow():

ON ACTION goto_last_row
   SELECT COUNT(*) INTO cnt FROM ... -- Count total rows
   CALL DIALOG.setArrayLength("sr", cnt)
   CALL DIALOG.setCurrentRow("sr", cnt)
