ADO Recordset Object CursorLocation Property

Sets or returns the location of the cursor engine. This property is read-only on UNIX.

CursorLocation Property Return Values

Sets or returns a Long value that can be set to one of the following constants:

Uses client-side cursors supplied by a local cursor library. Local cursor engines will often allow many features that driver-supplied cursors may not, so using this setting may provide an advantage with respect to features that will be enabled. For backward-compatibility, the synonym adUseClientBatch is also supported.
Default. Uses data-provider or driver-supplied cursors. These cursors are sometimes very flexible and allow for some additional sensitivity to reflecting changes that others make to the actual data source. However, some features of the Microsoft Client Cursor Provider (such as disassociated recordsets) cannot be simulated.

CursorLocation Property Remarks

This property allows you to choose between various cursor libraries accessible to the provider. Usually, you can choose between using a client-side cursor library or one that is located on the server.

This property setting only affects connections established after the property has been set. Changing the CursorLocation property has no effect on existing connections.

This property is read/write on a closed recordset, and read-only on an open recordset.

CursorLocation Property Example

See the AbsolutePosition property example.
