They are working on it. A new update is expected within 2 weeks.

It is not prepared for VS. SD is working with managed code whereas VS is following more a COM model. Hence their choice for SD.

It is there already. So your wish is granted.

LOCAL oCodeBlock, bInfo(1)

DIMENSION aInfo(3)
aInfo(1) = 1
aInfo(2) = 2
aInfo(3) = 3

oCodeBlock = { ;
             |exVal as double| RETURN exVAl^3 
             }

bInfo = AApply(aInfo, oCodeBlock)

? bInfo(1) && 1
? Binfo(2) && 8
? bInfo(3) && 27


FUNCTION AApply
LPARAMETERS aInfo, oDelegate
FOR i = 1 TO ALEN(aInfo)
	aInfo(m.i) = oDelegate(aInfo(m.i))
ENDFOR
RETURN aInfo

Nice? well, it can speed up your code like a 100 times! That is more than nice in my book.

No problem, you can still use the existing code.
Function overload OTOH makes for an easier and more transparent way of coding.
Then there is the "XXX() ..." parameter, creating an (zero based) array on the fly in the called function that can be read with alen().

Absolutely

Indeed, and it blows the other tools (in VS) out of the water if it comes to datahandling

Just as it should have been to start with. Something MS overlooked.

Nice, and a huge time saver, but remember, this is not fully implemented yet.
