General Expression Positions

General expression positions are read positions in which suitable data objects, calculation expressions, predefined functions, or functional methods and method chainings can be specified. The following general expression positions exist:

  • Right side of statement COMPUTE without the addition EXACT,

The type restrictions defined by the operand type apply in the operand positions. For example, no numerical functions can be specified in a bit expression.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


Specifying functional methods as actual parameters of methods enables the nesting of method calls in an operand position.

  • The three types of calculation expression can be executed as operands of logical expressions, but they cannot be mixed in one calculation expression.
