count() operator

Tinderbox Icon

A v4.0.0 function count() counts the number of discrete items in the specified attribute (of set data type).


The attribute argument is evaluated so can use, $attribute(note) or more complex expressions to get data - as long as the result is an attribute of the Set data type.

For example if KeyAttributes for the current note is "Color;Color2;NameFont" then the code


is effectively


and not surprisingly returns 3. Note that the count is not all unique values for the attribute across the whole TBX - scope is restricted to 'this' note or another nominated note. Specimen usage:


count($KeyAttributes(some other note))
