Dim

Declares variables.

Synopsis

Dim varname[, varname] . . .

Arguments

The Dim statement syntax has these parts:

varname Name of the variable; follows standard variable naming conventions.

Description

Variables declared with Dim at the script level are available to all procedures within the script. At the procedure level, variables are available only within the procedure.

All uninitialized variables are treated as zero-length strings ("").

Examples

The following examples illustrate the use of the Dim statement:

Dim MyStr        ' Declare one variable
Dim MyVar, MyNum ' Declare two variables

Notes

Caché Basic does not require the dimension of arrays to be specified, and therefore does not implement the ReDim Statement.
