Move a Global List to a client

To move a global list into client side memory, you call a routine called

This routine accepts two parameters:

  • An array containing the name of the lists that you want.
  • A keyword, either create or refresh.

When is invoked with the refresh parameter, it collects the newest version of its list from the server, whether that list already exists in the client’s memory space. If invoked with the create parameter, it collects a list from the server only if a copy does not already exist.

If you are programming in RAD, you can invoke directly from your code. If you are using the Global Initer to fill combo boxes for display on a form, you can invoke the Global Initer as a subroutine using Format Control for the format in question.
