Tip

Current User Has a Specific Role (Even if It's in a Group)?

This function searches if the current user has a specific role in the database ACL. To adapt this function you must add more StConstx constants and expand the case for each posibility.
Function HasRoleCurrentUser(StRole As String) As Integer
Dim rez As Variant

Const StConst1="@IsMember(""[ROLE1]""; @UserRoles)"
Const StConst2="@IsMember(""[ROLE2]""; @UserRoles)"
Const StConst3="@IsMember(""[ROLE3]""; @UserRoles)"
Const StConst4="@IsMember(""[ROLE4]""; @UserRoles)"
On Error Goto ErrorLabel

HasRoleCurrentUser=0

Select Case StRole
Case "[ROLE1]":
rez=Evaluate(StConst1)
Case "[ROLE2]":
rez=Evaluate(StConst2)
Case "[ROLE3]":
rez=Evaluate(StConst3)
Case "[ROLE4]":
rez=Evaluate(StConst4)
Case esle
rez(0)= 0
End Select
If rez(0)<>0 Then
HasRoleCurrentUser=1
End If
Exit Function

ErrorLabel:
'Call ErrorMessage("AccessLibrary","HasRoleCurrentUser()",Err,Erl)
Resume Next
End Function
