Dear all

i have a form that display the search of the employee according to a parameter

I'm not sure I understood what was the question ... but, if you'd like to know how many records will query retrieve without actually performing EXECUTE QUERY function and scrolling down the block, you might do the following:
- enter the ENTER QUERY mode
- select "Query" from the menu and choose "Count query hits"

If that's not what you are looking for, could you, please, explain it once again?

thank you brother for your cooperation

i mean that my result form is build on a parameter
so when i enter 1 it displayes 10 records
when i enter 2 it displayes 25 records
so i want my form to display the specific records
cause if I enter the number of displayed records =25
when my form displays the result on parameter 1
then 15 records will appear empty
so i want to solve this problem


best regards

Ah, I see ... so you'd like to dynamically change number of displayed records in a block, depending on number of fetched records. You are looking for something like

SET_BLOCK_PROPERTY('block_name', number_of_records, 15)

As far as I can tell, that is not possible.
