repeatElement (method)

Adds a new repetition to the current element.

Syntax

- (void)repeatElement;
public func repeatElement() throws -> Void

Remarks

RepeatElement is used to write repeated data elements in supporting version of X12 or EDIFACT. To use it, first write the first repetition of the simple or composite data element and then call RepeatElement to repeat it, then write again.

Example: Repeating a simple data element:

  EDIWriter writer = new EDIWriter();
  ...
  writer.StartSegment("Tag");
  ...
  writer.WriteElementString("R1_1");
  writer.RepeatElement();
  writer.WriteElementString("R1_2");
  writer.RepeatElement();
  writer.WriteElementString("R1_3");
  ...
  writer.EndSegment();

Example: Repeating a composite data element:

  EDIWriter writer = new EDIWriter();
  ...
  writer.StartSegment("Tag");
  ...
  writer.StartElement();
  writer.WriteComponentString("C1_1");
  writer.WriteComponentString("C2_1");
  writer.RepeatElement();
  writer.WriteComponentString("C1_2");
  writer.WriteComponentString("C2_2");
  writer.RepeatElement();
  writer.WriteComponentString("C1_3");
  writer.EndElement();
  ...
  writer.EndSegment();
