Displaying Symbols and Icons on the ListLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can output certain symbols or icons on a list by using the following syntax:

WRITE symbolname AS SYMBOL.
WRITE ikonenname AS ICON.

The names of symbols and icons symbolname and ikonenname are system-defined constants that are specified in the INCLUDE programs <SYMBOL> and <ICON> (the angle brackets are part of the name). The includes also contain a short description of the symbols and icons. The easiest way to output symbols and icons is to use a statement structure (see the example in Using WRITE via a Statement Structure ).

To make symbols and icons available to your program, you must import the appropriate INCLUDE program or the more comprehensive INCLUDE program <LIST> into your program. For further information about importing INCLUDE programs, see Using Include Programs .

INCLUDE <symbol>.
INCLUDE <icon>.
WRITE: / 'Telefon Symbol:', sym_phone AS SYMBOL.
WRITE: / 'Alarm Ikone: ', icon_alarm AS ICON.

This produces the following output:

You can replace both the above INCLUDE statements with one single INCLUDE statement:

INCLUDE <list>.
