TYPE Function (FieldRef)
Gets the data type of the field that is currently selected.
Type := FieldRef.TYPE
Refers to the current field.
Property Value/Return Value
Type: The data type of the field.
The following example opens the Customer table as a RecordRef variable that is named CustomerRecref. The code loops through fields 1 to 5 and creates a FieldRef that is named MyFieldRef for each field that is selected.
MyFieldRef.TYPE retrieves the data of each field and displays it in a message box. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constant in the C/AL Globals windows.
|Text constant||ENU value|
|Text000||Field %1 is a %2 data type.|
CustomerRecref.OPEN(DATABASE::Customer); FOR i := 1 TO 5 DO BEGIN MyFieldRef := CustomerRecref.FIELD(i); MESSAGE(Text000, i, MyFieldRef.TYPE); END;
