Subject RE: [IBO] Master/Detail - AfterOpen
Author Alan McDonald
Lester, where can I read more about the implications of RefreshOpen? The
help does not have too much - even up the hierarchy..
FAQ: "raRowNum will reopen the dataset and go to the RowNum that it was on
prior to the refresh. raDataPos uses the Bookmark to make it go to the same
record at which it was positioned before the refresh.
(Jason Wharton)"

which suggests (more than that) that the dataset is, in fact, closed and
"reopend(ed)". This would imply that the events should fire or more to the
point, that the datasets actually close and re-open. What really happens in
the detail dataaset when the masterlink parameter is change via the master
scrolling? I can not see details of this in the GSG or the FAQ...
If the detail dataset, when set to raRowNum, does not close then open what
is IB doing instead?

thanks again

RefreshAction? If the detail is not set to refresh by
closing and reopening, then I would not expect those to fire.
