Description

Creates a new field in a specified record format. If the record does not exist, a new one is created using the specified record name.

Please refer to the VectorScript Appendix for specific field data types and formatting.

PROCEDURE NewField(
recName  :STRING;
fieldName  :STRING;
fieldValue  :DYNARRAY[] OF CHAR;
fType  :INTEGER;
fFlag  :INTEGER);
def vs.NewField(recName, fieldName, fieldValue, fType, fFlag):
    return None

Parameters

recName STRING Name of record to which field will be added.
fieldName STRING Name of new field.
fieldValue DYNARRAY[] of CHAR Default value for new field.
fType INTEGER Data type of new field.
fFlag INTEGER Display style of field.

Remarks

If the fieldName argument is longer than 20 characters, it will be truncated to 20 characters, without warning. The recName argument can be up to something like 60 characters (I think).

Example

VectorScript

NewField('Part Info','Serial No.','A-0000',4,0);
