LABEL.New()

Type: CLASS FUNCTION

Purpose: Creates a new label.

Suppose a LABEL object is created with the statement:

ExptID = LABEL.New("EXPERIMENT", 20, "17S304", "Edit Expt. ID")

ExptID is an object of class LABEL with a value of "17S304". "17S304" is the portion of the ExptID object that can be modified by the user. It can be as many as 20 characters long.

LABEL.New() fails and stops the script if an error occurs.

  Length INDEX Size of field in bytes used to store value.
