any(group, value)

A Boolean operator examines a group of notes and determines whether any note in the group meets a criterion.

group describes the notes to be examined and may be any group designator including a find() query.

value may be any valid expression, but will usually be a reference to an attribute; short form Boolean attribute expressions are acceptable.

value must not be enclosed in quotes.

For example:

any(children,$Status=="Important") 

any(children,$Overdue==true) 

any(children,$Overdue) (using short from test)

any(children,$Overdue==false) 

any(children,!$Overdue) (using short from test)

If trying to resolve contains() for multiple matches, use any(children,$Name=="string"). Thus of it is desired for an agent to list the parent containers of all notes titled 'foo', the agent query would be:

any(children,$Name=="foo") 

If agents are present, it may be sensible to filter for aliases:

any(children,$Name=="foo") & !$IsAlias
