The function uf_destroy() is extremely simple - it just DESTROYs the object, sent to it - nothing else! But it is not as useless as you think :lol: - it allows to POST object's destroying. Use this function if you have an object, created locally in a function, and many RETURNs from that function. Call uf_destroy() with POST, and only once - just after you CREATE the object. This approach exempts you from writing DESTROY many times, before each RETURN. In the next example (treating a local DataStore), instead of

Code: Select all
lds = create lds

[fragment 1]
if ... then
   destroy lds
   return
end if

[fragment 2]
if ... then
   destroy lds
   return
end if

destroy lds

you will write this way:

Code: Select all
lds = create lds
gn_util.post uf_destroy(lds)

[fragment 1]
if ... then return

[fragment 2]
if ... then return

So, here is the code of uf_destroy() (it can be added to the utilities NVO of your application or wherever):

Code: Select all

if not IsValid(apo) then
   return
end if

destroy apo

return
