Description

Function GetField retrieves the text from a text field. This procedure is called when exiting a custom dialog to retrieve user data.
FUNCTION GetField(
fieldID  :INTEGER) : DYNARRAY[] OF CHAR;
def vs.GetField(fieldID):
    return DYNARRAY[] of CHAR

Parameters

fieldID INTEGER Item ID of field from which to retrieve data.

Remarks

Note: deprecated from VW 15+, use GetItemText for STRING values or GetMultilineText for DYNARRAY OF CHAR values.

The example is somewhat incomplete, as written. Only need to show the operation of the VS:GetField call.

Starting with 9.5b5, VS:GetField is supposed to return the string from both editable and static text fields. This has not been fully tested yet.

Example

VectorScript

REPEAT
DialogEvent(Item);

CASE Item OF
{// OK Button //}
1:BEGIN
Done:=TRUE;
targetValue	:= GetField(4);
replaceValue:= GetField(6);

IF ItemSel(9) THEN textMode:=2;
IF ItemSel(10) THEN textMode:=4;
IF ItemSel(11) THEN textMode:=8;
