bitset()

Function group Execute on client Platform(s)
Binary Field NO All

Syntax

bitset(binary,firstbitnumber,lastbitnumber)

Description

Sets a range of bits (all bits with numbers >=firstBitNumber and <=lastBitNumber) operating directly on binary. Returns a Boolean (true for success).

The function operates directly on the argument, and returns 1 for success and 0 for failure. If the bit numbers identify some bits which are outside the current length of the binary field, Omnis extends the field by appending bytes with value zero, and sets the bits.

Example

Calculate lStatus as bitset(lBinary,lFirstBitNumber,lLastBitNumber)
