How Do I Reference a Global Parameter Hidden by Instance Variable?

How Do I Reference a Global Parameter Hidden by Instance Variable?

How Do I Reference a Global Parameter Hidden by Instance Variable?

(OP)
I have a global parm (DivisionId) that I would like to set in the OnRead() method of a data row. The problem is the data row also contains a column/variable named DivisionId.

What syntax can I use to distinguish my global DivisionId from the data row instance's DivisionId?

CODE

Sub OnRead( )
    Super::OnRead( )
    ???.DivisionId = Me.DivisionId
End Sub

RE: How Do I Reference a Global Parameter Hidden by Instance Variable?

Can you not change the name of your parameter so it does not clash with the DataRow variable name?

That would be the easiest way eg: PDivisionId for param name.

RE: How Do I Reference a Global Parameter Hidden by Instance Variable?

(OP)
I could change the parm name as you suggested but I'm just as interested in getting a handle on understanding parameter/variable scope in Actuate's programming environment and would like to know how to qualify these variables properly for any future projects I work on. I'm very new to working with Actuate.
