To refer to an object within the current window, call a method of that object instead of using ac-rel().
To refer to an object outside the current window, collect the information you want to refer to in a user-defined property on startup of the current window, and then refer to that property.
Ac-rel() performs an action on a control other than the current one. The control is specified by a path.
ac-rel(<path>, <method>[, <parameters>])
Specification of the control the action should be performed on.
The action you want to perform.
The parameters required for the action.
ac-rel(*tableShell, control-set-values, title, text)
ac-rel(<-*currentColumn.data, convert-alternative-format, DDMMYY,MMDDYY,DDMM,MONDD)
This method has the same purpose as action-other-control(). However, action-other-control()operates slightly differently from ac-rel(). In ac-rel(), parameters containing column identifiers or paths are resolved in relation to the calling object. In action-other-control(), they are resolved in relation to the target object.
