CantUnderstand Message

Syntax

on cantUnderstand
end cantUnderstand Sent to the current card

Description

When Oracle Media Objects receives a message it cannot interpret, it sends a cantUnderstand message to the current card You can write a handler to intercept this message before a standard "Can't understand" alert box (for example, "Syntax error," "Object not found") appears.

Notes

Examples

Imagine that you have a stack of library handlers called "My_Handlers". The following stack script checks whether a command that Oracle Media Objects could not interpret is contained in "My_Handlers" and then reminds you to library that stack. on cantUnderStand aaa aaa is "my_handler3" then else pass cantUnderStand
