 Action code




 Already in v5.0.0


Action code expression that an agent applies to each of its matching aliased notes, i.e. its children.

The agent's actions are applied to aliases though the target can by modified by use of the 'original' (especially for intrinsic attributes) or 'agent' designators.

The contents of $AgentAction are shown in the agent's Create/Rename dialog, allowing review and manual editing of its value. This attribute is the equivalent of $OnAdd for a normal container note. The agent's actual $OnAdd attribute is ignored for action purposes.
