Get(LayoutTableName)

Category: Get

Syntax: Get ( LayoutTableName )

Parameters: None

Data type returned: Text

Description:

Returns the name of the table occurrence (not the source table) from which the current layout shows records.

Because there is no way of retrieving the name of the source table with which a layout is associated, consider prefixing the names of table occurrences with an abbreviation that represents the source table. For instance, you might name a table occurrence INV_CustomerInvoices. You can then use text parsing functions to retrieve the source table name from the results returned by the Get (LayoutTableName) function.

Note that when no windows are active or visible, an empty string is returned.

Examples:

Function

Results
