LayoutNames()

Category: Design

Syntax: LayoutNames ( fileName )


Parameters:

fileNameA string or text expression that represents the name of an open file. It can include a file extension, but doesn need one.

Data type returned: Text

Description:

Returns a carriage returndelimited list of layout names for the specified file.

As with the LayoutIDs() function, the order of the layout names is determined by the current order of the layouts, not their creation order.

If you wanted to find out a particular layouts ID (say, the Contact_Detail layout), you can use the LayoutNames() and LayoutIDs() functions together, as follows:

 Let ([
 LNs = LayoutNames (Get(FileName));
 LIs = LayoutIDs (Get(FileName));
 pos = Position (LNs; "Contact_Detail"; 1; 1);
 num = PatternCount (Left(LNs, pos); "¶") + 1 ] ;
 GetAsNumber (MiddleValues (LIs; num; 1))
 )


Examples:
