I need to set lock on DBF (dBase) table via BDE API in Visual Basic 2010. Similar like Delphi procedure:
My questions are:
1. Should I open the table before locking and get its handle? If yes, how can I open the table via BDE API?
2. What happens on HDD, when lock is set? (the attribute od file DBF is set to read only, or BDE creates some temporary file as lock, or BDE writes somewhere the information, that this table is locked)
