Use the abbreviated keyword to obtain a date, time, name, or ID with a moderate amount of detail.

Comments:

In general, an abbreviated form is longer than the short form, but shorter than the long form.

If the useSystemDate property is set to false, an abbreviated date looks like this:

Thu, Jan 27, 2000

If the useSystemDate is true, the abbreviated date is formatted according to the system settings.

If the useSystemDate property is set to false, an abbreviated time looks like this:

11:22 AM

If the useSystemDate is true, the abbreviated time is formatted according to the system settings.

An abbreviated object name consists of the object type, followed by the name in quotes. For example, an abbreviated card name looks like this: card "This Card"

An abbreviated object ID looks like this: field ID 2238

Note: The abbreviated keyword is implemented internally as a property, and appears in the propertyNames. However, it cannot be used as a property in an expression, nor with the set command.

Changes to Revolution:

The form the abbreviated owner was introduced in version 2.0. In previous versions, the form of the owner property could not be specified and reported only the abbreviated owner.
