Syntax

Set reference field-name to notation-or-calculation-for-an-item

Description

This command sets up and stores a reference to an item in a variable of type Item reference. It assigns an alias for an item of notation that you do not want to type each time the item is referenced in the code.

Note - for JavaScript client-executed methods this command is equivalent to Calculate.

Example

; declare local variable lRef of type Item reference in a window class
; set the local item reference variable lRef to a Balance field on a Page Pane
Set reference lRef to $cinst.$objs.PagePane.$objs.Balance
; now you can set the text color of the Balance field to red using lRef
Do lRef.$textcolor.$assign(kRed)
