Parameters

Variant
Type: Variant

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Boolean

true if the C/AL variant contains an Automation variable; otherwise, false.

Example

The following example determines whether a C/AL variant contains an Automation variable. The MyAutomation variable is assigned to the variant variable that is named MyVariant. The ISAUTOMATION function determines whether the variant contains an Automation variable and stores the return value in the varResult variable. In this case, the variant contains an Automation variable so Yes is returned and displayed in a message box. The ISCODE Function (Variant) determines whether the variant contains a code variable. The return value is No because the variant does not contain a code. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constants in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Subtype
MyAutomation Automation AFormAut 1.0 Type Library
MyVariant Variant Not applicable
varResult Boolean Not applicable
Text constant name ConstValue
Text000 Does the variant contain an Automation variable? %1
Text001 Does the variant contain a code variable? %1
MyVariant := MyAutomation;  
varResult := MyVariant.ISAUTOMATION;  
MESSAGE(Text000,varResult);  
varResult := MyVariant.ISCODE;  
MESSAGE(Text001, varResult);
