IsRef

IsRef( value )
IsRef( value )
IsRef( value )
IsRef( value )
is_ref( value )
IsRef( value )
IsRef( value )

Description

The IsRef function returns true only if value is a Reference, otherwise it returns false.

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

value

Any

Any value, which is to be tested to determine whether it is a Reference or not.

Returns

Returns a Boolean, indicating whether value was a Reference or not.

Examples

The following query uses Map to iterate over an array of all of the types of values that can be tested by a type-check function, passing each item into a Lambda function that returns an object, which contains the value and the result of calling IsRef with that value:
