Gets the current caption of a field as a String.
Caption := FieldRef.Caption()
This method can be invoked using property access syntax.
The Caption method returns the caption of a field. Caption first looks for a CaptionML Property. If it does not find one, it will use the Name Property. This means that Caption is enabled for multilanguage functionality.
This method is similar to the FieldCaption Method (Record).
The following example opens table 18 (Customer) as a RecordRef variable that is named CustomerRecref. The code uses the Field Method (RecordRef) to loop through field 1 through 9 and creates a FieldRef variable that is named MyFieldRef. For each field, the Caption method retrieves the caption of the field, stores it in the varCaption variable and displays it in a message box.
var MyFieldRef: FieldRef; CustomerRecref: RecordRef; varCaption: Text; i: Integer; Text000: Label 'The caption for field %1 is "%2"'; begin CustomerRecref.Open(18); for i := 1 to 9 do begin MyFieldRef := CustomerRecRef.Field(i); varCaption := MyFieldRef.Caption; Message(Text000, i, varCaption); end; CustomerRecref.Close; end;
