Example
CharactType("A") // the function returns ctAlpha|ctUppercase

CharactType("é") // the function returns ctAlpha|ctLowercase|ctAccent

// Checks whether a character is a letter
IF BinaryAND(CharactType("c"), ctAlpha) <> 0 THEN
Trace("This character is a letter")
END
Syntax
<Result> = CharactType(<Character>)
<Result>: Integer constant (or combination of constants)
Type of studied character:
ctAccentAccented or diacritical character.
The ctAccent constant is always combined with the ctAlpha constant.
ctSpaceSpace.
ctAlphaLetter.
ctUppercaseUppercase character.
The ctUppercase constant is always combined with the ctAlpha constant.
ctLowercaseLowercase character.
The ctLowercase constant is always combined with the ctAlpha constant.
ctNumericNumeric character.
ctPunctuationPunctuation character.
<Character>: Character string (with quotes)
Character to use.
Remarks
  • The character 0 returns 0.
  • Various character characteristics can be combined: a character can be an accented letter. In this case, the following constants can be combined: ctAccent, ctAlpha, ctUppercase and ctLowercase.
    To check a single characteristic (for example, if the character is a letter): it is recommended to test the corresponding constant with BinaryAND or with the "&" operator. For example:
    // Checks whether a character is a letter
    IF BinaryAND(CharactType("c"), ctAlpha) <> 0 THEN
    Trace("This character is a letter")
    END
