Pinned topic Actions - ActionList

‏2011-12-21T07:21:16Z |
Hi All,

I am new to wpf, in most of the examples/articles, ActionList is widely used, in the Actions under Arguments I can see some action like shown below, how to get used to this kind of syntax, please suggest.

.Assignment!Variables/employeeUIDSSelectedRow/MyDBRow/EMPNO=${Variables/employeeNumber}

The above action is from

    Hi,

    You actually can just type that in. You've probably tried this and it didn't work. I'm afraid you're running afoul of an Eclipse bug that we were unable to work around: That leading dot is NOT part of the data, it's put there by Eclipse which is trying to show something under the text we put there.

    Also, you can have the picker generate these for you. Click the ... button on the right, choose Special / Assignment and you will get a box that lets you pick the lvalue and the rvalue.

    Sorry about the misleading dot. :-)

    Thank you Steve, but I am worried about the syntax, how to learn it.

    Thank you Steve, but I am worried about the syntax, how to learn it.
    The easiest way to get this syntax is by using the ... chooser button and choose the values using the picker. It is possible to just type the values in but the picker will automatically add the corect syntax.
