Another newbie question. This generated code comes from the Browse States section of the Getting Started lesson.
I understand the convention of
Sta:StateName where the table is abbreviated to Sta and then there is a colon and the field name. It makes sense. Similarly I am using
loc:localvariable for local variables.
But what is with the double-colon, and why all the other colons in
Similarly, why the :1 in
I did a search in the help for “:” but as usual came up blank. What is the significance of all these extra colons?
! Browse View & Queue for States BRW1::View:Browse VIEW(States) PROJECT(Sta:State) PROJECT(Sta:StateName) END Queue:Browse:1 QUEUE !Queue declaration for browse/combo box using ?Browse:1 Sta:State LIKE(Sta:State) !List box control field - type derived from field Sta:StateName LIKE(Sta:StateName) !List box control field - type derived from field Mark BYTE !Entrys marked status ViewPosition STRING(1024) !Entrys view position END
Thanks in advance for helping me learn and understand.
