Extra! Check Value?

Extra! Check Value?

Extra! Check Value?


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.


RE: Extra! Check Value?


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).


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