Indicates whether a C/AL variant contains a Text variable.

Ok := Variant.ISTEXT

Parameters

Variant

Type: Variant

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Boolean

true if the C/AL variant contains a Text variable; otherwise, false.

Example

The following example determines whether a C/AL variant contains a text variable. The code initializes the MyText variable with a text value. The MyText variable is assigned to the variant variable that is named MyVariant. The ISTEXT function determines whether the variant contains a text variable and stores the return value in the varResult variable. In this case, the variant contains a text variable so Yes is returned and displayed in a message box. The ISCODE function determines whether the variant contains a code variable. The return value is No because the variant does not contain a code. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constants in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Length

MyText

Text

50

MyVariant

Variant

Not applicable

varResult

Boolean

Not applicable

Text constant name Enu value

Text000

Does the variant >%1< contain a text variable? %2.

Text001

Does the variant >%1< contain a code variable? %2.

Copy Code
MyText := 'This is some text';
MyVariant :=  MyText;
varResult := MyVariant.ISTEXT;
MESSAGE(Text000,MyVariant,varResult);
varResult := MyVariant.ISCODE;
MESSAGE(Text001,MyVariant,varResult);
