I have a list of string values representing the IPC id's submitted using SKILL.
eg: ipcList = ("ipc:15" "ipc:16" "ipc:20") etc,
I would like to query their status using ipcIsAliveProcess() and ipcReadProcess().
ipcStatus = ipcIsAliveProcess(nth(0 ipcList)),
but, I'm unable to do so as the datatypes do not match. Is there a way I can convert these "string" data values to "o_childId" type. Kindly guide me in solving this prolem.
Thanks in advance,
You can avoid having to have a global variable for this by storing the mapping as a property on the field or the form. For example:
You can add whatever user-defined properties on the form or field objects as you wish. This could be a simple hash table (e.g. association table produced using makeTable()).
