PROPERTY_NAME function [System] Next Page

PROPERTY_NUMBER function [System]

Returns the property number of the property with the supplied property-name.


PROPERTY_NUMBER( property-name )


property-name    A property name.


Each property has both a number and a name, but the number is subject to change between releases, and should not be used as a reliable identifier for a given property. In cases where either property number or property name can be used, it is preferable to use the property name. Always use the PROPERTY_NUMBER function to ensure that the property number is current for the server being used.
