1042 - Can I use EvalAssign in an Icon Title?
by - Joseph Ganci
Can I use EvalAssign in an icon title?
So that you could put, for instance:
lessonNum := 3
as the icon's title and
in the Calc icon.
In the Calc icons in which I use EvalAssign (a practice I don't use often, by the way), I actually will put the following:
if EvalStatus > 0 then MessageBox(WindowHandle, EvalStatus ^ ": " ^ EvalMessage, "Error in Icon " ^ IconTitle, 0)
This puts up useful information, courtesy of the EvalStatus and EvalMessage variables. That way, if the variable lessonNum doesn't exist in the file,for instance, MessageBox would pop up with:
22: Variable 'lessonNum' is not defined.
The box's title bar would show:
Error in Icon lessonNum := 4
This has been useful to me. I hope it is to you.
