E-Prime uses bracket characters, [ and ], as a special nomenclature to signify an attribute reference. For example, a List object has an Attribute named "theImage" with the values being the images shown during a Slide object (e.g., dog.bmp, cat.bmp). The SlideImage's filename property can then be specified with an Attribute Reference to theImage. This is done by specfying [theImage].
Additionally, an experiment can use these characters in an InLine:
Debug.Print "I can use the [ and ]characters here"
Legacy End User Comments
|Alternatively, savvy users may use the backslash character, '\', to escape the special meaning of the '[' and ']' directly in the GUI. E.g., use "I can use the \[ and \]characters here" directly in the GUI for the Stimulus TextDisplay object.|
