|I was working with integrating PB with VBScript but because there is no
concept of structures in VBScript I could not return a structure of data back from a get
data function call. I toyed with the idea of exposing the datastore object and allowing
the VBScript to access the data directly but this would be too dangerous so I wrapped the
datastores in a custom non visual object and provided a set of functions to allow access
to the datastore. One was the getitem function which is listed below. This function allows
protected calls to the datastore to get any row/column combination, an overloaded version
to allow column number was also provided.
IF al_Row > ids_ds.RowCount() THEN RETURN ""
ll_Col = Long( ids_ds.Describe( as_Column + ".ID" ) )
IF ll_Col > 0 THEN &
la_A = ids_ds.object.data.primary.current[ al_Row, ll_Col ]
This example shows how you could implement a GetItemAny function for your
datawindow/datastore ancestor and shows the PB5 dot notion being used to access the
