9.162 PUT_FUNCTION_ATTR

Note: Built-In Function Rules     Usage Options

Sets an attribute of a function definition that is being edited within an edit session previously started by using the START_FUNCTION_EDIT Built-In Function.

Attributes set or returned by this Built-In Function have the same editing and validation rules as the equivalent online facility provided in a full LANSA development environment.

Special Note: This Built-In Function provides access to very advanced facilities that basically allow RDML functions to construct new RDML functions.

This is a very specialized area that requires very good knowledge of the LANSA product. Use of this Built-In Function in a "commercial" application (e.g. Order Entry) is not normal and should not be attempted.

This is a Specialized Built-In Function for use in a Development Environment only.
