Optional Parameters

(OP)
Hi all,

I've got a quick question about function parameters. Is there a way to define a parameter as optional so that you don't get an error and then check to see if that parameter has been sent or not?

The only way I can see this working is using an array as parameter and sending values inside that array and checking the values inside.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Still

RE: Optional Parameters

At present no.  This feature has been requested in the past, but another request could only help.  You can email Mathsoft support with suggestions for improvements.
