ASSTRING

ASSTRING(bitmap)

bitmapThe value to treat as a string.
Return:ASSTRING returns a single STRING value.

The ASSTRING function returns the bitmap as a string. This is equivalent to TRANSFER(bitmap,STRINGn) where n is the same number of bytes as the data in the bitmap.

Example:

INTEGER1 MyInt := 65; //MyInt is an integer whose value is 65
MyVal1 := ASSTRING(MyInt); //MyVal1 is "A" (ASCII 65)
 // this is directly equivalent to:
 // STRING1 MyVal1 := TRANSFER(MyInt,STRING1);INTEGER1 MyVal3 := (INTEGER)MyVal1; 
 //MyVal3 is 0 (zero) because "A" is not a numeric character
