DevOutPict()

DEVOUTPICT()

Displays a value to a device using a picture template

Syntax

      DEVOUTPICT( <xExp>, <cPicture>, [<cColorString>] )

Arguments

<xExp> is any valid expression.

<cPicture> is any picture transformation that TRANSFORM() can use.

<cColorString> is an optional string that specifies a screen color to use in place of the default color when the output goes to the screen.

Description

Outputs any expression using a picture transformation instead of using the default transformation for the type of expression.

Examples

      // Output a negative dollar amount using debit notation.
      DEVOUTPICT( -1.25, "@D$ 99,999.99 )

Tests

      @ 3, 1 SAY -1.25 PICTURE "@D$ 99,999.99"
      will display "$(     1.25)" starting on row four, column two of the
      current device (without the double quotation marks, of course).

Compliance

DEVOUTPICT() is mostly CA-Cl*pper compliant. Any differences are due to enhancements in the Harbour TRANSFORM() over CA-Cl*pper.
