Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : SELECT-PREV-ROW( ) method


Deselects a currently selected row in a browse and selects the row before the deselected row.
Return type: LOGICAL
Applies to: BROWSE widget


This method also repositions the query to the new row and copies the record into the database buffer. The browse automatically scrolls to the selected row if it is out of view.
This method is intended for use with a browse that supports the selection of a single row at a time (MULTIPLE attribute is set to FALSE). If more than one row is selected when you execute this method, all of the selected rows are deselected and the record before the last selected row becomes the selected row.
