If elem is an element of the array type, returns a new array with the specified element on position index1. If index1 is greater than the array size, it will add empty elements on the missing positions.


Return Type

Element of the array type


watchers = setElement(watchers, 12, currentUser());

Sets the value currentUser for the 13 th element of the array watchers.


  1. If array is not defined as an array, the routine returns error.

  2. If index is not number the routine returns error.


Starting with version 2.5 we added the indexing operator. It will work on arrays, strings, dates and interval.
You can simply write in your programs watchers[12] = currentUser() to refer to the 13 th element in the watchers array.
