Returns the string for a given string identification number. This function is especially useful in multilingual applications.
The identification number of the string
The string previously defined by ADD_STRING with the specified identification number or a string containing the text "String number n not found.".
If your sign-on function used the ADD_STRING() function to define multilingual strings like this based on different language codes:
ADD_STRING(3,"Customer not found");
Then all other scripts that needed to access a multi-lingual string would reference the function STRING(n) in their code in a language independent way. For example this code:
for (i = 0; i <= 4; i++)
alert( STRING(i) );
Would display the strings:
String number 0 not found.
Customer not found
String number 4 not found
Similarly, if your sign-on script had defined two strings like this:
ADD_STRING(1,"Customer number ");
ADD_STRING(2," could not be found or you are not authorized to view them.");
Then you could dynamically build a multi-lingual message in another script like this:
var strMessage = STRING(1) + CustomerNumber.toString() + STRING(2);
