Version 2.0 Released July 19, 2001
This extension is designed to give Satellite Forms developers more
functionality and control of their variables. There are three main uses for
- Memory Control
Using this extension developers can minimise the number of 'variables' in
memory at any one time. Developers have the ability to add and remove array
entries, that act like variables, from memory as the program runs. There is
also the ability to clear all array entries from memory at any time.
- Standard/Associative Array(s)
Developers can also use this extension as basic, multidimensional or
associative arrays. Only one number based array can be used at a time as a
variable with a key of 0 can only have one variable associated with it.
- Run Time Variables
Probably the most powerful feature of the extension is that it allows the
creation of dynamic "variables", where the variable name is created at run
time. This ability means that your variables can be as dynamic as your data.
Really this is just a type of "Associative" array, where the key does not
need to be defined until run time and can therefore be based off tables,
controls or other variables.
