If I open a terminal and type the following commands, sc is an error:

set validator = "sc = ##class(%Library.Numeric).IsValid(""BLAH"")"
set @validator
write sc

At the end, when I write sc I get:


However, if I call the following class method using the arguments "%Library.Numeric" and "BLAH", sc is undefined

I am trying to figure out the best ObjectScript analog to mimic, more or less, the %RCOPY functionality. What would be ObjectScript  method(s) if any to copy a routine from the current namespace to another one and compile it there?

I have a %Stream that I want to insert some text into the middle of.  I create a new stream called pNewContentStream from the original stream, then I do a MoveTo in pNewContentStream to get to the byte position I want to insert into but when I do my Write, my pNewContentStream gets obliterated with only the text that I wrote, the original content goes away and all I'm left with is my Write text.

Portal's category.


I’m looking for a way to find out which category of portal a connector belongs to.
I looked at the class ‘Ens.Config.Production’ and ‘Ens.Config.Item’ but without success.

An idea about the ‘ObjectScript’ code to design?

Best Regards.

I am executing the command:

      set fileComp = ##Class(SYS.Database).FileCompact(obj.Directory, freeSpace, .actualFree)

      where obj.Directory contains the location of the current database

This executes correctly. However, the resultant OREF object does not contain any displayable properties but rather is of the value:

       "0 "_$lb($lb(380,,,,,,,,,$lb(,"%SYS",$lb("e^zFileCompact+38^SYS.Database.1^1","e^^^0"))))/* ERROR #380: Completed but skipped some blocks, details recorded in the console log. */

I have a terminal script that queries sys.process' and then parses the results writing to a logfile. As part of the processing of the results, each row of the result set includes an element from the static string.  But I am not clear on the scoping of the static string. The write statement sees the static string as undefined. What I want is something to the affect:

     set statStr = "aa|bb|.."

   set sqlStatement = xxx

   set tState  = ##class(%SQL.Statement).%New()

   set qStat   = tState.%Prepare(< sql statement> )

When overwriting the Read method (that has a %CacheString return type) on a new class that inherits %Stream.FileCharacter class, returns an error about incorrect return type, must be Binary, even if it matched the real signature.

Looking at the compile global information we can see:


After further investigation we realise that there is a generator method looking at the OdbcType class definition.

Setting LONGVARCHAR results in:
