Syntax

a = supports(dbmeta)
a = supports(dbmeta, 'property')
a.property

Description

a = supports(dbmeta) returns a structure that contains the properties of dbmeta and its property values, 1 or 0. A value of 1 indicates that the property is supported, and 0 indicates that the property is not supported.

a = supports(dbmeta, 'property') returns 1 or 0 for the property field of dbmeta. A value of 1 indicates that the property is supported, and 0 indicates that the property is not supported.

a.property returns the value of property after you have created a using the supports function.

    a = supports(dbmeta, 'GroupBy')
    a =
         1
    
  2. View the value of all properties of dbmeta.

    a = supports(dbmeta)
    

    The returned result is a list of properties and their values.

    a =
         1
