More on application variables… that I think is one of the crucial parts of the whole product… for boosting productivity.
Is good to have the UniqueNumber (and understand usefulness) but I think that much more useful should be a “RelativeUniqueNumber”… I explain what I mean:
my rules says that my indexes have names like… tablename_ix_00, tablename_ix_01, tablename_ix_02… where the last number is unique but amongst the indexes of the table, not in an absolute way…
so in my mind RelativeUniqueNumber should…
a) find the last used number inside the context is working in
b) add 1
c) put resulting number where appropriate
Ok, we could add something like :3 indicating a min length of 3 with leading zeros, but I think is too much and we could live without
