BlindCarbonCopy property

EmailReportButton.BlindCarbonCopy — Text

Special value available in formulas:



The button this property is part of, enabling multiple checked items in the app designer to share the same formula and be updated all at once.

Consider the fields Field1 and Field2, which should only be considered to be valid if their values are greater than 4. Without using the Item value, the Valid property of Field1 would need to use the formula Field1 > 4Field1 > 4 and the Valid property of Field2 would need to use the formula Field2 > 4Field2 > 4.

Using Item, both formulas can read Item > 4Item > 4. This is useful if you have many fields and you want to be able to update their formulas all at once. To do so, click their check boxes in Calcapp Creator and make sure that a checked field is selected. Then, when you update a formula for one checked field, you update all the other checked fields too, which is a great timesaver.

Use Item in exactly the same way you'd use the regular name. Button1.VisibleButton1,Visible and Item.VisibleItem,Visible are equivalent, for instance.

The blind carbon copy ("BCC") recipients of the email. There must also be primary recipients, meaning that the Recipients property must return at least one recipient. Blind carbon copy recipients are invisible to all other recipients.

Use the Recipients and CarbonCopy properties to send the report to email addresses which are visible to the other recipients.

This text string must consist of one or several email addresses. Multiple addresses may be separated by spaces, commas or semicolons. In formulas, use & to join text strings together. Use the TEXTJOIN function to convert an array of text strings to a text string suitable for use with this property.

If this property is not set, no blind carbon copy recipients are used.

Entering formulas in the inspector

If you use the inspector to enter a value for this property, you can incorporate formulas by enclosing them within {{ and }} markers.

Behind the scenes, Calcapp converts an inspector value with formulas to a single traditional formula. You can view this formula, or edit it directly, by selecting the BlindCarbonCopy property from the drop-down menu next to the formula bar.

The examples on this page use traditional formulas, where text strings and other values are joined together using &. To enter them in the inspector, be sure to enclose them within {{ and }} markers. Alternatively, enter them in the formula bar.
