View list of data type meanings


Returns an array of all the named aliases currently defined. You can then use GetAlias or GetAliasInfo for more details about each one.

Note - from version 3.40 onwards GetAliasList returns all aliases, even unlabelled ones. The unlabelled aliases will have assigned an "internal" label (like "*alias42") that can be used in GetAliasInfo, and similar routines.

VBscript example
dim alList

alList = world.GetAliasList

If Not IsEmpty (alList) then

  For Each name In alList 
    world.Note name

End If
Jscript example
aliaslist = new VBArray(world.GetAliasList()).toArray();

if (aliaslist)  // if not empty
 for (i = 0; i < aliaslist.length; i++)
   world.note(aliaslist [i]);
PerlScript example
foreach $item (Win32::OLE::in ($world->GetAliasList))
Python example
aliaslist = world.GetAliasList
if (aliaslist ):
  for a in aliaslist : world.Note (a)
Lua example
al = GetAliasList()
if al then
  for k, v in ipairs (al) do 
    Note (v) 
  end  -- for
end -- if we have any aliases
Lua notes
Lua returns nil where applicable instead of an "empty variant".
Returns If there are no aliases (with names) then the return value is empty. Use "IsEmpty" to test for this possibility.

Otherwise, it returns a variant array containing the names of all the aliases. Use "ubound" to find the number of aliases in the list. You can then use "GetAlias" to find details about each alias.
