i am starting to fall in love with the idea of custom functions and need to find out how do you "GURUS" do it?
if i want to for example translate this from a script to a custom function:
Set Variable: $curObject; Value: Get( ActiveLayoutObjectName)
Go to Object: ObjectName: $curObject
Set Selection [start Position: Length(Get ( ActiveFieldContents)) + 1
In my starting , i dont even know where to begin.
I hope this was a clear description.
A custom function calculates - it does not perform actions. Committing a record, activating an object and selecting text are all actions. They can be performed manually or by a script - not by a calculation.
