call()

Description:

Call a script file and return the first result set.

Syntax:

call(spl,arg1,…)

Note:

The function calls script file .dfx/.splx while passing in the parameter arg1,…, returns the first value that dfx returns, and ends the invocation. It is a non-cellset function and so can be used outside the cellset. The function will automatically use the @s option to search for the .dfx/.splx among the file names with non-absolute paths in a specified order: Class path -> Search path -> Main path. The default main path is the current path.

When calling the call function, parameters arg1,... will be assigned to .dfx/.splx’s parameters in order, which is irrelevant to the parameter names in .dfx/.splx’s parameter list.

Parameters:

spl

Script file .dfx/.splx

arg1,

Parameters

Options:

@r

Disable the default buffer call

Example:

Below are the contents of script file C:\\test.dfx where arg1 is the cellset parameter:

 

A

1

=connect("demo").query("select * from Students1 where Age>?",arg1)

2

return A1

 

 

A

 

1

=call("C:\\test.dfx",15)

Call the script file, and return the first returned value. Query the data of students who are above 15 years old

 

Note:

Use the comma to separate the multiple results returned. E.g. return A1,B2.
