The Mysterious SELF Function


OK, call me crazy, but I can't for the life of me understand WHAT the Self function really does and how to apply it.  The example given in the official FM Help file refers to:



  Exampleself > 10 returns 1 (true) when applied to a layout field object whose value is greater than 10.


This leaves me with the obvious question of "what's a layout field object?" Is this just a field on any layout? If so, what would an example of a SELF function look like when it is "applied" to a field?


Help appreciated.
