Code Scope of Action:
Code First Added:
^text( item[, N] [, plain])^
The body (text and graphics) of the item or note, i.e. includes any existing mark-up. If a note name is not specified, 'this' is assumed as the focus. If the note only contains an image, the image's tag () is exported.
The first N words of the text of the item or note, where N is a number:
^text( item, N )^
Alternatively, the first N words of the text of the item or note, without added HTML mark-up and where N is a number:
^text( item, N, plain )^
If no HTML text mark-up is required.
^text( plain )^
The text of the current note without any added HTML mark-up codes, or use ^value($Text)^ instead. The code is effectively the same as ^text(this,plain)^.
N.B. The 'plain' option is still subject to the effects of HTMLQuoteHTML and HTMLMarkupText. For instance, if the latter is true, then the phrase "This & that." will get exported as "This & that." which might not be as intended, e.g. if exporting via runCommand().
Alternatively, to get the text of the note, totally untouched by other processes, use ^value($Text)^.
