Creating a type defined control refnum cluster?

Go to solution

Frighteningly, I'm understanding this now.



It's not frightening at all, once you treat them as nothing special.  And the only thing special about references is that their indicators don't show any values.


It's important that you realize that a reference to an I32 indicator is not the same as a reference to an I16 indicator or a reference to a switch.  They are not interchangeable, in spite of the fact that underneath it all, they're probably all just 32-bit numbers.

That's why the indicators for a reference will show a DBL or switch or whatever icon - they are distinct data types.


If you need to, you can convert them to generic control references and deal with them that way, but that is rarely needed, IMO.
