The FGLStringVariable Class

For every CHAR, VARCHAR, STRING, TEXT, DATE, DATETIME and INTERVAL Genero variable of report data, an object is created that is an instance of an FGLStringVariable. These objects hold the value of the Genero variable.

Member Objects

Defined fields for the FGLStringVariable class.

Table 1. Member Objects (Member Variables)
Name Description
value A String containing the value of the field; this is the same as the value of the Genero variable. See Class Usage.
name A String specifying the name of the field.
caption A String specifying the title of the field.
type A String specifying the RTL type of the field.
isoValue The locale and formatting-independent representation of the value of the variable.

For the FGLStringVariable, isoValue is the same as value. It does not have any impact and is included for consistency only.

Class Methods

This subclass inherits the public methods of the String class.

Class Usage

In addition to the value of the Genero variable, these objects contain a member variable "value" which also contains the value. For this reason, it is legal to write "order_line.billState" in your expression as a shortcut for "order_line.billState.value".
