LOCAL_VARIABLES Function

Syntax

as P = LOCAL_VARIABLES()

Description

Gets the local variable frame, used to pass local script variables down to other functions.

Discussion

The LOCAL_VARIABLES() function returns a pointer to the collection of variables local to the layout or function.

Example 

The following example shows the variables local to the Interactive window.

dim a as C
dim b as N
a = "alpha"
b = 12
? local_variables()
= a = "alpha"
b = 12.000000

This example responds to the OnPush event of a button and reports on the local variables for the form.

dim vars as P
dim varnames as C
vars = local_variables()
varnames = properties_enum(vars)
ui_msg_box("Local Variables", varnames)
