The MultiSelect Command


The InterviewTheme Command


The ChooseFromDataset Command

The ChooseFromDataset Command

We have a ChooseFromRepeatingData command (which is the same as ChooseFromData, but is a more descriptive name), and a ChooseFromDataElements command. The ChooseFromDataset command combines the functionality of the other two, and adds some more flexibility. The first argument is the name of the data element to be chosen. This is as per convention. The […]


The YearsMonthsDaysBetween Function


The RepeaterPosition Function

The RepeaterPosition Function

Consider the commands OnExitSet and OnEnterSet. These commands are only executed during the lifetime of the interview, and also contain conditions which need to be evaluated when the user navigates through the interview. Also consider the case where you would like certain actions to take place depending on the position of the current repeater. For […]


The Value Function

The Value Function

This function is usually used inside Scripts, when you want to use a script as a function inside another command.

The Execute Function

The Execute Function

The Paragraph Command


The Mod Function

The Mod Function

Mod is used to get the remainder when dividing one number by another. It is typically used to divide sets of items into odd and even, or in a Rule. For example: «ForEach(Parent)» «Name» «End()» «Rule(Parent,hard,(count(Parent) mod 2) = 0,’Please enter an even number of parents.’)»


The HideFromPreview Command

The HideFromPreview Command

By default, when the user selects to preview the results of an assembly (during the Interview process), the system will display the document generated by the template itself, and any document generated by the MergeTemplate function. Sometimes, the template author may want to restrict the preview functionality to specific templates. In this case, including the […]
