object notation is something like
the key Firstname is not set in doublequotes. Hmh, that means Firstname is tokenized, or is it?
Will keys in OB SET($o;Firstname;“Vorname“) be tokenized too?
Will be tokenized into something like this:
So if it was your question „1“, yes first name in this case will be a separate token. In fact so is a quoted 4D string, which is a 4D [constante] token of type string…
Regarding your question 2. Lets take a detour.
Dot syntax should really be understood as a shortcut for
This shortcut is available only when one can resolve any lexical (understand tokenization) ambiguity. Indeed, an object is only a key-value dictionary. The key is a string with very few constraints. Taking an extreme example:
$o[„value+[Table_1]Num“]:=2//This is an absolutely valid object key!
Alert(String($o.value+[Table_1]Num))//Am I actually performing an addition or just requesting a key?
this is why, when using ob set/get or bracket syntax, you’ll still have to use a string.
I hope I helped.
