Syntax rules

The following Syntax rules apply to the format file for the View custom command:

A width control may be optionally specified using a ":". The sign following the width control character indicates the type of truncation. If the string is longer than the specified width, a positive truncates the end of the field and a negative truncates the beginning of the field.


It is recommended that you label the format files for the View custom command with a .vc file extension if you store them in the esm\format\<platform> folder or esm/format/<platform> directory with other format files.
