[Link_FirstRecord] ... [/Link_FirstRecord] returns an anchor tag
with a link to the first record in the current found set. This tag
should be used within [Inline] ... [/Inline] tags that perform a
-Search or -FindAll action. This tag sets -MaxRecords to 1 and
-SkipRecords to 1.

If the current action is not -Search or -Findall or the current
found count is 0 then this tag does not return a value. If the
first record is already being shown then this tag does not return a
value. The [Link_CurrentAction] ... [/Link_CurrentAction] tag can be
used to generate a link to the current format file regardless of
action. This tag cannot be used with an inline that performs a -SQL

This tag is usually used with the -NoClassic parameter to generate a
URL that contains only the command tags and parameters necessary to
specify the current search. The response page should include an
[Inline] tag with [Action_Params] followed by the action, -Database,
-Table, and -KeyField required by the tag. By specifying the inline
in this way the action and database/table cannot be overrided by a
Web visitor.

[Inline: (Action_Params),

The base URL of the link is set by default to the path to the
current format file (using [Response_FilePath]). This value can be
overridden by specifying a -Response parameter in the tag itself.

Additional parameters such as command tags or name/value pairs can
be added to the tag using the [Link_SetFormat] tag or by specifying
them within the tag itself. Parameters in [Link_SetFormat] and the
tag itself override those in the current action. Array parameters
are inserted as if all the elements of the array were placed at the
location of the array (similar to how they are interpreted in inline

Parameters can be eliminated from the generated URL using -No...
parameters. These can be specified in [Link_SetFormat] or in the
tag itself. The following -No.. parameters can be used.

-NoName removes every instance of the specified command tag.
(e.g. -NoDatabase, -NoTable, -NoLogicalOperator).

-NoAction removes the action tag (e.g. -Search, -FindAll).

-NoClassic removes all command tags which are usually specified
within inline tags including -Database, -Table, -KeyField, and

-NoParams removes all name/value parameters from the link (including
associated -Required, -Op, -OpBegin, and -OpEnd command tags).

-No.Name removes every instance of the the specified
parameter from the link. (e.g. -No.First_Name or -No.Company).

-NoSort removes all -SortField and -SortOrder tags.

-NoTokens removes all tokens. -NoToken removes the unnamed token.
-NoToken.Name removes the specified token.

The parameters are specified in the following order. First, the
action is specified. Next, the command tags (with the exceptions
listed later) are included in alphabetical order. Each command tag
is only included once. Finally, all of the name/value parameters
and the following command tags are included in the order they were
specified (-SortField, -SortOrder, -Op, -OpBegin, -OpeEnd).

The -Username, -Password, -SQL, and -ReturnField parameters are
never output by this link tag.
