Version: 2.2.1 +
Object Type: Calculation Object
A Range is a series of numbers or dates starting at a given startnumber (or startdate) and ending at a given endnumber (or enddate) using a given stepsize.
DebugLogMode (from version 4.1)
Indicates the level of detail of debug information that is logged when running a Futurama application (website, webservice, console application) to the trace, a logfile, a database etc. The possible values are:
- None: no debug information is logged
- Simple: only basic information is given
- Extended: in addition to the information in the Simple mode the values of all the properties of the object are shown
Possible values are True or False. If the value is False, then the object can only be used within the document where it is created. If the value is True, then also from other Futurama documents can be referred to this object. This means that changes in the object also affect the document in which is referred to this object. If the value is True and you attempt to move or delete the object, a warning will be given. To limit these warnings to a minimum it is recommended to set IsPublic to True only when necessary.
ReturnsTable (until version 5.0)
This is an automatic property indicating whether the result of the Calculation object is a table. For a Range it is always True. From version 5.1.0 the ReturnsTable property is replaced by the Rank property (see property below).
Rank (from version 5.1)
The Rank property is an automatic property indicating the rank of the Calculation Object. Rank=0 implies a scalar. Rank=1 a vector and Rank=2 a matrix. For a Range the Rank=1.
The name of the object as it is shown in the source of the website. By default the XmlName is equal to the name given in the property (Name) with spaces replaced by underscores, but you are free to change it.
The name of the object.
Here a comment can be entered. For example a short description of the object.
The unique identification number of the object. This number is automatically generated by Futurama on the moment of creation. This number can be used when searching for a certain object in the Find Window.
Here the start number/date and end number/date can be defined between which the Range will be created. Also the stepsize and the sign be stated. After the Range has been defined the property shows in x*1 format the number of rows (x) of the Range.
The value of this property determines what kind of values can be entered at the property Text. The following types are available:
- Long (an integer)
- Double (a broken number)
