    Varable object references for global function

    I'm tring to create a global script which uses simular objects under different parents.
    Object with action:
    bcSafetyDetailEdit.bcSafetyDE.hfrmSafetyDetail.hln kSelect.Click()

    Ideally I would like to just change "Safety" a each level. I can get away with one WINDOW data type by type casting The string "bcSafetyDetailEdit" to a WINDOW data type variable:
    STRING sModule = "bcSafetyDetailEdit"
    WINDOW wModule = @sModule
    (wModule).bcSafetyDE.hfrmSafetyDetail.hlnkSelect.C lick()

    ..This seems to work, but how can I get the others to also be variable? A second WINDOW data type doesn't work.
    Thanks

    Re: Varable object references for global function

    Almost there! At least I get it to work using the code below. When I try Module(sModule) instead of @sModule Silk thinks Module is a function.

    This works:
    STRING sModule = "bcSafetySplitLogFrame"
    WINDOW wModule = @sModule

    wModule.@sModule.hlnkSelect.Click()
    //wModule.Module(sModule).hlnkSelect.Click() - Fails


    Thanks for the info concerning this wonderful kingdom.

    Actually Silk sees it as a class definition for a dynamic instance of a class that isn't defined.

    If Module were instead a DialogBox then:

    wModule.DialogBox(sModule).hlnkSelect.Click

    would work just fine.

    This is identical to a literal form:

    wModule.DialogBox("bcSafetyDetailEdit").hlnkSelect .Click

    You'll see this form frequently when using Record/Identifier prior to compiles and for objects that you haven't captured in declarations using Record/Declarations.
