[MaxRecords_Value] returns the value for the -MaxRecords command tag for the current database action. The default return value is 50 if no -MaxRecords paramater was specified.

This method can be used within the [Inline] ... [/Inline] methods that perform a database action or in a format file which is the response to an HTML form or URL that performs a database action. This method cannot be used within [Records] ... [/Records] methods that reference a named inline. If -MaxRecords=All was specified in the database action then this method will return -1 as its value.

In L9, this tag returns 'all' when -maxrecords='All' is specified, not -1 as stated. Please make it output -1.
