The Chr Function


The Chr Function

This function can be used to return a character based on its numeric (Unicode) value.

It will probably only be used in the context of building up a string where the character can’t be typed directly.  One such application is the building of a set of address lines into a block which can be displayed using the InsertFormattedText command.

Example: the command below assumes that values have been captured into AddressLine1 and AddressLine2, and the concat will join the two together, separated by a carriage-return character Chr(13). The concat is executed when the focus in the interview leaves the field for capturing AddressLine2 (see the OnExitSet article for an explanation of that command)

«OnExitSet(AddressLine2,AddressBlock,Value,,concat(AddressLine1,Chr(13),AddressLine2),,EvenWhenNotEmpty)»

For more examples, see the article Use Chr to make an apostrophe.

Note that this function is available only in version 4.2 and later of XpressDox.
