Specifies the index tag for the record source of the Grid control or Relation object. Available at design time and read-only at run time.

Object.ChildOrder[ = cTagName]

Return Value


Specifies an existing index tag name.


Applies To: Grid Control | Relation Object

If the ChildOrder property is set, the Order property of the Cursor for the child table is ignored.

Use this property to link two tables that have a one-to-many relationship. For example, a customer table containing one record per customer links to an order table containing multiple orders per customer. For this one-to-many relationship, set the ChildOrder property to the customer ID index tag field.

The ChildOrder property mimics the behavior of SET ORDER.
