Report/Label Editor - Field Flags - Field Flag Numbers

Each Field Flag is identified by a unique number. If more than one flag is selected, the Field Flag numbers are added together and their total is displayed in the Flags field in the Table of Fields box on the Edit Form Screen.

The Field Flag numbers used are are based on the power of 2:

When any combination of these numbers are added together, using each number only once, the sum is unique. No matter how many Field Flags are enabled for a given field, Keystroke always knows which flags are enabled by simply evaluating the total.

For example, if the following three Field Flags are enabled:

8 - Skip if Blank
32 - Line Feed After This Field
1024 - Upper Case

The numbers total 1064, which can only be the sum of these three power-of-two numbers, and therefore can only represent these three flags.
