Hi Scott I don't know anything about FM8 or FM9 - we skipped them - but I've got FM10/11/12 all installed on my laptop, for testing purposes. In FM10/11 you can't enter (). You get an error about invalid syntax if you do. So that grouping feature is new in FM12. We've used build expressions a lot in FM10 and it would've been easier with grouping! Something else that may not be obvious: you can combine AND with NOT to give you ANDNOT functionality. That's very useful. Another thing is that FM 10/11 do group things, you just have no control over the grouping. We've got expressions like: productA andnot internalOnly andnot future or product-family-A andnot internalOnly andnot future FM groups this as: (productA andnot internalOnly andnot future) or (product-family-A andnot internalOnly andnot future) not as: productA andnot internalOnly andnot (future or product-family-A) andnot internalOnly andnot future Feel free to ask any other questions, or let me know if you want me to test anything. Cheers Rebecca

I'm looking for information on the differences between the basic functionality of the conditional build expressions in FM from FM8 to FM12. >From the UI functionality perspective, it looks like FM8 and FM9 are the same, >then in FM10 a "label" was added so you could give your build expression a >name. FM10 and FM11 look the same, and in FM12 they added a "()" button to >allow for grouping. The docs are woefully lacking on details. Was the basic functionality and syntax the same from FM8 to FM11? Is the "()" (grouping) feature actually new in FM12 or was that allowed previously, but you just had to know to type it? I must admit that I've never really used this feature, but would like to leverage it in a plugin, so need to know which aspects are new and which have been there since FM8. Any tidbits of info are appreciated. Thanks! ...scott NOTICE: This message contains privileged and confidential information intended only for the use of the addressee named above.
