I am probably still a little lost. I guess I don't know what "hard
Once the above is set, you can get the contents with this:
put LF into bindingChar
put empty into valueAccumulator
repeat for each line f in myVar
put field f after valueAccumulator
Do you want to have all the field values evaluated each time you look
at the variable? I don't know how to do that.
Here are three things that might be close.
Use a function instead of a variable.
put catFields() into ...
Use value on the variable. Set it up like this:
field "Alpha" && field "Beta' && field "Gamma"
Use it like this
put value(autoCatFields) into ...
Use properties. If all those field are in a group, then define a
custom property with a getProp that calculates the concatenation of the
values of all fields within the group.
put the catFields of group "Will Robinson" into ...
Am I getting closer?
