Gets the name of a field as a string.

Name := FieldRef.NAME

Parameters

FieldRef

The FieldRef of the field in the record.

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Text Constant or Code

The name of the field given as input.

Remarks

The CAPTION Function (FieldRef, TestPage Field) function retrieves the Caption Property of a field. To enable your application for multilanguage functionality, you must use the FIELDCAPTION Function (Record) instead.

This function is similar to the FIELDNAME Function (Record) function.

Example

The following example opens the Customer table as a RecordRef variable that is named CustomerRecref. The FIELD Function (RecordRef) creates a reference to the fields in the table and stores the FieldRef in the MyFieldRef variable. The code loops through field 1 through 5. For each field, the NAME function retrieves the name of the field and stores the value in the varName variable. The field number and the value in the varName variable are displayed in a message box. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constant in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType

CustomerRecref

RecordRef

MyFieldRef

FieldRef

varName

Text

i

Integer

Text constant ENU value

Copy Code
FOR i := 1 TO 5 DO BEGIN
CustomerRecref.OPEN(DATABASE::Customer);
MyFieldRef := CustomerRecref.FIELD(i);
varName := MyFieldRef.NAME;
MESSAGE(Text000, i, varName);
CustomerRecref.CLOSE;
END;
