Type: System..::.Boolean
If true, the newly created cursor is initialized to refer to the same position in the database as the original cursor (if any) and hold the same locks (if any). If false, or the original cursor does not hold a database position and locks, the created cursor is uninitialized and will behave like a cursor newly created by Cursor()()().

Return Value

A newly created cursor


This is useful when an application is using locking and requires two or more cursors in the same thread of control.
