C/Front: reading without a database connection

It makes sense - I’ve just never given it any thought before: it is possible to read some system tables using C/Front without having an active connection to a database. The code below shows how to read from the License Information table. IF CFront.OpenTable(hTable, 2000000040) THEN BEGIN hRecord := CFront.AllocRec(hTable); CFront.FindRec(hTable, hRecord, '-'); MESSAGE(CFront.FieldToStr(hTable, hRecord, 2)); CFront.FreeRec(hRecord); CFront.CloseTable(hTable); END;
