Extra! Check Value?

Extra! Check Value?

(OP)
Hello,

I am fairly new to programming. I've had a couple classes in college about C+ and C++ so I've been trying to adjust to Attachmate Extra Macros. Basically I need to write an IF statement based on whether or not a value at a coordinate is blank or not. I need to check if coordinates (10, 74) are blank. I need to go off of the "blank" because there are too many other variables that it could be to base the IF statement off of.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

RE: Extra! Check Value?

Hi,

Coordinates (row and column) give you a point in the screen. That might be, for instance the beginning of a field. Check out GetString(row, col, len).

CODE

If Trim(Screen.GetString(10, 74, 5)) = “” Then
   ‘Nothing in this 5 character field
End If 

Skip,
