These are undocumented features. I think you've already
figured out how they work. The extension .withvalue says to
use the value of the control it is on to do the following, and
the @ indicates where that value should be put in.
Dankwart Plattner goes on to ask about 2 things in regards to
this: 1) that this useage seems restricted to 64 characters
and 2) a startup error message of no variables defined. I do
not think there should be a 64 character limit, although I
could be wrong. I will need to see the code to figure these out.
This can be sent in to me (my address is below) or to
I suspect this is just debugging this particular dialog box, however
if there is anything of general interest, I will report my findings
back to Statalist.
