-> calls a member tag of a data type. It can be used to call both built-in member tags for the default data types or custom member tags defined for third-party data types.

The tag specified by the right parameter is evaluated on the value specified by the left parameter. The tag must be a valid member tag for the data type of the left parameter.







Required Parameters
Left_Parameter The name of a variable which contains the value whose member tag should be called or a literal value.
Right_Parameter The member tag which is to be called.


To call a member tag:

Use the member symbol -> with the name of the tag that should be called. The following example uses the member symbol twice. The first time it is used to call the [Array->Size] member tag to specify how many times the [Loop] ... [/Loop] tags will loop. The second time it is used to call the [Array->Get] member tag each time through the loop.

[Variable: 'MyArray'=(Array: 1, 'Two', 3.0)]
[Loop: $MyArray->Size]
  [Output: $MyArray->(Get: Loop_Count)]
