Sets or gets the value of the field that is currently selected. This method returns an error if no field is selected.
[Value := ] FieldRef.Value([NewValue: Any])
This method can be invoked using property access syntax.
If you omit NewValue, the method returns the current value of the field.
If you want to format the value of a FieldRef you must use
forMAT(FieldRef) instead of
The following example opens table 18, the Customer table, a RecordRef variable that is named CustomerRecref. The FIELD Method (RecordRef) creates a FieldRef for the first field (No.). The reference to the field is stored in the MyFieldRef variable. The ACTIVE Method (FieldRef) method determines whether the field is enabled. If the field is enabled, then the record that is identified by the number in the CustomerNo variable is selected. The MyFieldRef variable is updated to refer to the second field (Name). Then the value in the second field is changed to Contoso. The MODIFY Method (RecordRef) modifies the record in the table to reflect the change.
MyFieldRef.VALUE retrieves the new name and displays it in message box.
var MyFieldRef: FieldRef; CustomerRecref: RecordRef; CustomerNo: Code; Text000: Label 'Customer name has changed to %1.'; begin CustomerNo := '50000'; CustomerRecref.OPEN(18); MyFieldRef := CustomerRecref.FIELD(1); if MyFieldRef.ACTIVE then begin MyFieldRef.VALUE(CustomerNo); MyFieldRef := CustomerRecref.FIELD(2); MyFieldRef.VALUE('Contoso'); CustomerRecref.MODIFY; MESSAGE(Text000, MyFieldRef.VALUE); end; end;
