Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the multiply command to multiply a container or a portion of a container by a number, or to multiply two arrays containing numbers.

Parameters:

The chunk is a chunk expression specifying a portion of the container.

The container is a field, button, or variable, or the message box.

The number is any expression that evaluates to a number.

The arrayContainer is an array variable each of whose elements is a number.

Comments:

The contents of the container (or the chunk of the container) must be a number or an expression that evaluates to a number.

If an arrayContainer is multiplied by a number, each element is multiplied by the number. If an arrayContainer is multiplied by an array, both arrays must have the same number of elements and the same dimension, and each element in the arrayContainer is multiplied by the corresponding element of the array.

If the container or an element of the arrayContainer is empty, the multiply command treats its contents as zero.

If container is a field or button, the format of the result is determined by the numberFormat property.

Changes to Revolution:

The multiply arrayContainer form was introduced in version 1.1. In previous versions, only single numbers could be used with the multiply command.
