BE_ArraySetFromValueList ( valueList {; retainEmptyBoolean } )


Stores the valueList as an array within the plugin memory space and returns an index number that you can use to reference the array via memory.


Version : 3.3.0
4.0 : added the retainEmptyBoolean parameter


Parameters : 

  • valueList : The standard FileMaker return separated list of values to store.  
  • retainEmptyValues : Defaults to false.  Whether or not to include empty values as array elements.


Result : A number corresponding to the index of the array.  This number is use later when retrieving values from the Array.


NOTE : BE plugin value lists have by default a difference when compared to FileMaker FileMaker value lists.  The default option for retainEmptyValues ignores empty values, so "a¶¶b¶" becomes an array of [a,b] - in other words an array of two values.  Be careful if you're assuming that empty values are retained, or set the parameter to True.
