How to get the real value of macro?

Posted on by 1,548


How to get the value macros inside TradeTotals class

    public static Integer  posCurrency()
        return #posCurrency;

I want to call TradeTotals::pocCurrency and get GBP instead of integer number.

    RE: How to get the real value of macro?

    [tag:posCurrency] is an integer and posCurrency method will always return that integer. There's no way how you could call TradeTotals::posCurrency and get the currency code.

    But, if your actual requirement is something else, perhaps we can help you solve it.

    If you look at that class in detail, you will notice that [tag:posCurrency] is used to control the position of the actual currency info in the displayFields container.

    So, if you use [tag:posCurrency] to lookup a value from displayFields (with conPeek function) you will get the actual currency code.

    Please let us know if this helps to solve your actual requirement. Thanks!

    Hi junior AX,

    posCurrency macro has been defined in the class with integer 8 and is being used to identify the position of the currency field in a container.


    You can find the currency code value using conPeek. Please check currencyCodeValue method in PurchTotalsForm class as an example.
