Problems with jumping to a specific record

Hi!!
I have some problems finding a procedure with wich you can jump to a specific record-number in a table, like this:

DM1.Table1.XXXX[5];
(Where I want to jump to record number five..)

I looked at GotoKey, Find and the rest of them, however they all need information other than just the record-number.

I use Delphi Developer 2.0 and the table is a Paradox-base.

Thanx!

What you mean with Jump ?
You need read data of this record, delete or any other ?

Hi Erik N,

There exists a procedure MoveBy(Distance: integer) :

The MoveBy method moves the dataset cursor by Distance records. If Distance is negative, the move is backward. If Distance is positive, the movement is forward. If Distance is zero, no move is done. MoveBy returns the number of records that were traversed.

You can use this procedure to go to the fifth record in a table.
Do it like this :

DM1.Table1.First; { Go to the first record }
DM1.Table1.MoveBy(+5); { Go to the fifth record }

So, make a function :

function MoveTo(RecordPos: Integer):Integer;
begin
 with DM1.Table1 do begin
  First;
  Result := MoveBy(RecordPos);
 end;
end;

If you need it to work on different tables :

function MoveTo(OnTable:TTable;RecordPos:integer):integer;
begin
 with OnTable do begin
  First;
  Result := MoveBy(RecordPos);
 end;
end;
 
OffCourse you better improve these functions with error checking!

Have fun,

Glad I could help you,

Does it works like you wanted it?
Sad that you always have to go to the first record isn't it?

Have fun,
