History-List method

Use the History-List method to obtain a list of History- instances for a class.

This method is similar to the Obj-List method, which creates embedded pages corresponding to a list of instances of a class.


This method has five parameters:

Parameter Description
ToPage Identify the name of the destination clipboard page to contain the results of this method. This can be an existing or new page.
ClearToPage Select if the system is to clear the current contents of the page identified in the ToPage parameter before adding history detail.

Select this box to cause HTML <A > anchors from the history instances to be included on the destination page.
MaxReturn Optional. Enter an integer value that is the maximum number of history instances to search and return.
Descending Select this box to cause the embedded pages to correspond to the history instances with oldest first, corresponding to index value (1).


This method retrieves history instances up to the count identified in the MaxReturn parameter and creates an embedded page for each instance, sorted in accord with the Descending check box.
