Set the cursor to refer to key, and store the primary key/data pair associated with the given secondary key in Current. In the presence of duplicate key values, the first data item in the set of duplicates is stored in Current. If key, or pkey, or data is partial DatabaseEntry, its PartialLen bytes starting PartialOffset bytes from the beginning of the retrieved data record are returned as if they comprised the entire record. If any or all of the specified bytes do not exist in the record, Move is successful, and any existing bytes are returned.

	bool exact


Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The key at which to position the cursor
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The key of the current matching record in primary db
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The data of the current matching record in primary db
Type: System..::.Boolean
If false and in a database configured for sorted duplicates, position the cursor at the smallest key greater than or equal to the specified key, permitting partial key matches and range searches. Otherwise, require the given key to match the key in the database exactly.

Return Value

True if the cursor was positioned successfully, false otherwise.


If positioning the cursor fails, Current will contain an empty KeyValuePair<(Of <(TKey, TValue>)>).
