SP_QUERY

QUERY()

  Short:
  ------
  QUERY() Popup Interactive query by example condition
  builder

  Returns:
  --------
  <cQuery> => macro expandable logical condition
  expression

  Syntax:
  -------
  QUERY([aFields,aDesc,aTypes],[cQuitTo],[lUseBuildex])

  Description:
  ------------
  A point and shoot condition builder. Complex
  conditions are allowed with multiple .and./.or. Called without
  parameters, all fields in the current dbf are presented for condition
  building.

  [aFields,aDesc,aTypes] give field array, field
  description and field types.These, if passed will be used in
  place of the default of all dbf fields. (pass all or none)

  [cQuitTo] is a 'quit to' phrase. Default exit option
  is 'Quit'. 'Quit to' phrase will be tacked to the end of this .
  i.e. "Quit"+quit_to  [ Quit to Report Writer ]

  [lUseBuildex] determines whether BUILDEX() expression
  builder will be available from QUERY(). Default is not.

  Examples:
  ---------
   USE CUSTOMER

   aFields := {"fname", "lname",  "mi" }
   aFdesc  := {"First", "Last",  "Middle" }
   aTypes  := {"C","C","C"}
   cFilt   := QUERY(aFields,aFdesc,aTypes,nil,.t.)

   count for &cFilt  to nCount

   // or (preferably)
   count for eval( sls_bquery() ) to nCount

  Notes:
  -------
  Query always stores the current query with the
  function SLS_QUERY(). Calling SLS_QUERY() will return the
  currently stored query string. SLS_BQUERY() returns the query as
  a codeblock. Remember to clear sls_query()/sls_bquery() when
  changing DBFs.
