BE_ArraySetFromValueList

BE_ArraySetFromValueList ( valueList {; retainEmptyBoolean } )

 

Stores the valueList as an array within the plugin memory space and returns an index number that you can use to reference the array via memory.

 

Version : 3.3.0
Version : 4.0 added the retainEmptyBoolean parameter

Parameters : 
valueList : The standard FileMaker return separated list of values to store.  
retainEmptyValues : Defaults to false.  Whether or not to include empty values as array elements.

Result : A number corresponding to the index of the array.  This number is use later when retrieving values from the Array.

 

NOTE : BE plugin value lists have by default a difference when compared to FileMaker FileMaker value lists.  The default option for retainEmptyValues ignores empty values, so "a¶¶b¶" becomes an array of [a,b] - in other words an array of two values.  Be careful if you're assuming that empty values are retained, or set the parameter to True.
