Example Brick setq 029




These examples show the setq function set the values of a Brick using the field name and the field index.



Create a new Brick, named X, and give it 5 rows each containing three fields. The name field contains 2 repeats, the age field contains 2 repeats, the address field contains 2 repeats.

The brick X will look like this table:

row1name1 row1name2 row1age1row1age2row1address1row1address2
row2name1 row2name2 row2age1row2age2row2address1row2address2
row3name1 row3name2 row3age1row3age2row3address1row3address2

(setq X (new Brick: 3 name:Object:2 age:Integer:2 address:Object:2)) Returns: #<Record 123456>

You can set values using indices. The first index is the field or field index, the second index is the rowNumber, and the third index is the repeatNumber of the specific field.

(setq X[name: 0 0] #("Anna") ) Returns: #<Record 123456>

The field index 2 refers to the address field.

(setq X[2 0 0] #("California") ) Returns: #<Record 123456>

We are writing on the second row.

(setq X[name: 1 0] #("Beth")) Returns: #<Record 123456>

We are writing on the second row.

(setq X[1 1 0] 18) Returns: #<Record 123456>
