Put Command


For bitmaps:
put {<bitmap> | empty} into <bitmap> For text containers (variables, fields, pickLists, dataSheets, dataSheets, charts): put <source> [into| before | after [<chunk> of] <container>] Description: The put command places a value into a container. When working with bitmap objects, you can use the put command to perform copy and clear operations on the images in a bitmap.


If no destination container is specified, the put command places the value in the Message Box. If Oracle Media Objects doesn't recognize the destination container, it creates a new local variable with that name. You can delete the value in a container by putting the constant empty or "" into it. This does not delete the container itself. You can also specify a chunk expression to insert, replace, or delete a portion of the contents.


Create a text field and named it "test". Type the following lines in the Message Box and press Enter after each: put "Access your data" into field "test" put "from the desktop" after word 3 of field "test" put "Oracle Media Objects:" into myvariable
