Handling a formatted display control by programming
Overview
WEBDEV allows you to handle a formatted display control by programming. To do so, use the variable of the formatted display control in the code.
The variable of the formatted display control corresponds to the name of the formatted display control. The type of the variable depends on the control type (numeric, text, currency, ...).
Initializing a formatted display control (server code)
To initialize a formatted display control, a simple assignment of the control variable is sufficient. This initialization must be done in server code. For example:
// Initialize the formatted display control named "FSTC_Date"
FSTC_Date = 19990506
// Other possibility: Date..Value = "19990506"
Note: you also have the ability to use ..Value or ..Caption.
Retrieving the value of a formatted display control (server code)
To retrieve the content of a formatted display control (static or dynamic) in a server code:
  • perform a simple assignment. For example:
    CurrentDispContent = FSTC_FORMATTED1
  • handle the formatted display control directly. For example:
    Info(FSTC_FORMATTED1)
  • use ..Value or ..Caption.
Use example

How do I display the following text in a page: "date of last update: dd/mm/yyyy":

  1. Creating a formatted display control.
  2. In the initialization code of the control, enter the following code:
    MySelf = fDate(CompleteDir(fExeDir()) + "MySite.WDL", "", fModification)
    Where "MySite.WDL" corresponds to the WDL for your site.
