MySelf (Reserved word)
In french: MoiMême
MySelf is used to handle the current control. When the project is run, MySelf is replaced with the control (and not by the name of the control). Therefore, MySelf is used as a control.
Benefit: MySelf is used to make a local code (control, item, and so on) or a global code (global procedure, class, and so on) independent of the current control.
Example
// - Whenever a Combo Box control is modified
// Call the UpperMask procedure
UpperMask()
// --UpperMask procedure
// Capitalize the 1st letter for an editable Combo Box control
PROCEDURE UpperMask()
Value = MySelf
IF Length(Value) > 1 THEN
CursorPosition = MySelf.Cursor
MySelf = Upper(Value[[1]]) + ...
Lower(Value[[2 TO Length(Value)]])
MySelf.Cursor = CursorPosition
END
Syntax
MySelf
Remarks

Handling the current control

  • MySelf is always replaced with the current control. For example:
    • Retrieving the value of the current control:
      ControlValue = MySelf

      Modifying the value of the current control:
      MySelf = "Smith"
    • Using a property (Caption for example):
      MySelf.Caption = "Name of customers"
      ControlCaption = MySelf.Caption
    • Passing a parameter:
      CallProcedure(MySelf)
  • A WLanguage error occurs if there is no current control.

Using MySelf in a procedure

  • MySelf can be used in a local procedure or in a global procedure only if the procedure is called in a process associated with a control. In this case, MySelf refers to the current control.
  • MySelf is used to make a procedure "generic": the name of the control is not spelled out. This procedure can be called by several controls.

WLanguage functions and current control

To specify the current control in the WLanguage functions that accept a control name as parameter, use:
  • an empty string,
  • Myself directly.
