listdictionarykeys(
DICTIONARY
)

The listdictionarykeys( function returns a list of the keys in a dictionary collection.


Parameters

This function has one parameter:

dictionary – is the name of the field or variable that contains the dictionary (must contain binary data).


Description

The listdictionarykeys( function returns a list of the keys in a dictionary collection. For example, suppose you created a dictionary and stored it in variable named mailto.

fileglobal mailto
mailto=initializedictionary("Address","3987 Olive","City","Tustin","State","CA","Zip","92841")

Later, you could use the listdictionarykeys( function to find out what values had been stored in this dictionary:

listdictionarykeys(mailto)

The result would be a carriage return delimited list of the keys.

Address
City
State
Zip

Note: In previous version of Panorama (6.0 and earlier) this was called the listdictionarynames( function, which will still work for compatibility with existing databases.
