DECLARE Command

JavaScript Editor js editor     Web development 



Main Page

Creates a one- or two-dimensional array.

Note:
DECLARE is identical in operation and similar in syntax to the DIMENSION command. For more information, see DIMENSION Command.

DECLARE ArrayName1 (nRows1 [, nColumns1]) 
   [, ArrayName2 (nRows2 [, nColumns2])] ...

Remarks

You can use either brackets or parentheses to enclose the expressions in DECLARE. For example, the following two commands create identical arrays:

В Copy Code
DIMENSION gaArrayOne(10), gaArrayTwo[2,4], gaArrayThree(3,3)
DIMENSION gaArrayOne[10], gaArrayTwo(2,4), gaArrayThree[3,3]

When the size of an array is increased or decreased when SET COMPATIBLE is set to ON or DB4, the value of each element in the array is reinitialized to .F.

Note:
Visual FoxPro arrays are one-based - the first element, row, or column of an array is specified with the number 1. (Arrays in other programming languages may be zero-based; the first element, row, or column of an array is specified with the number 0.)
