tcl.itemlist*

Command tcl.itemlist* Definition/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category TCL (746)
Description used to indicate the choice of item-ids used within TCL2 commands. It may either be a single item-id, multiple item-ids separated by spaces, or "*" (asterisk), which indicates all items.

There is a valid "fourth" method of "itemlist*". This occurs when a list is already "active". The "active list" may be generated by processes such as "select", "sselect", "qselect", "get-list", "fl" ("form list"), etc.

When a list is active, the "itemlist*" is omitted from the (TCL2) verb:

select entity
17827971 items selected.
copy entity<cr>

If a specific list of item-ids (or "*") is provided while a list is active, the active list is ignored.

A list of TCL2 commands is provided under "see also" below.

In Advanced Pick, if a valid TCL2 command is provided without a specific list of item-ids (or "*"), "all" items are implied. In other words, the "*" is optional. This does NOT hold true for earlier versions of Pick. If the item-id is not specified, and no list is active, the process prompts for an item-id.
Syntax verb file.reference item-id
verb file.reference item-id item-id item-id ...
