Accessing Properties

objectName->propertySpec

or

@objectModifier(objectIdentifier)->propertySpec

Object Identifiers

The object modifiers and their arguments are described in the table below. Values for the object identifiers are either integers or strings, and can be in the form of variables, expressions, or quoted text for string values.

Table 1-4 Object Identifiers

Object modifier Object identifier

@app

None. The current program object identifier is always specified as @app().

@field_num

Widget's field number on a screen (on the window stack or in an active LDB), specified as an integer value.

@id

Integer handle of any application object; obtained via the object's id proper ty, or by calling sm_prop_id.

@ldb

Name (string value) of an LDB screen.

@screen

Name (string value) of a Panther screen on the window stack. Use @current to specify the current window.

@screen_num

Number of a screen on the window stack. An integer value as follows:

0: active screen; n<0: nth screen below active screen; n>0: nth screen above base (n=1) window.

@tp_req

String identifier (callid) associated with a service request. The identifier is stored in the tp_return application property immediately after a service call is initiated. To specify the current service, use @current as a string.

@widget

Name (string value) of widget or group on a screen that is on the window stack or in an active LDB. To specify the current widget, supply @current as a string.

Subscripts to widgets can refer to the occurrence (single brackets) or the array element (double brackets).

Property Specification

JPL

In JPL, access the properties via:

objectSpec->propertySpec

where propertySpec is specified as either:

Arrays

If the property is an array, specify the occurrence:

pkey2 = tapes->primary_key[2]

In widget arrays, subscripted references return the value of the specified occurrence [n] or array element [[n]]; non-subscripted references return the first element. Thus, these two statements put the same data into variable cust

cust = @widget("customer")[[1]]
cust = @widget("customer")

To get portions of an object's value, append substring specifiers to the object's reference. For example, this statement gets the first eight characters from customer's second occurrence:

cust = @widget("customer")[2](1, 8)

C Functions

In C, access the properties via:

sm_prop_id is not needed for the application or for the current screen. Use PR_APPLICATION as the object ID for the application; PR_CURSCREEN for the current screen.

The property constants used in the C functions are derived by converting the property name to upper case and prepending PR_. For example, the equivalent constant for max_occurrences is PR_MAX_OCCURRENCES. There are a few exceptions; those properties are marked with a § in the property categories.

The following example returns the value of the hidden property for the cust_id widget on the custlist screen:

int objid, val;
objid = sm_prop_id ("@screen('custlist')!@widget('cust_id')");
val = sm_prop_get_int(objid, PR_HIDDEN);

For more information on accessing properties, refer to "Setting Properties Using the Property API," in Application Development Guide.

Properties marked with §, as in poll_frequency§, have a different C constant. See the main section.
