Get Buffer Size


Description

This action can be used to retrieve the size of a buffer, in bytes. You supply the unique buffer ID value as returned by the action Create Buffer and then give a target variable to return the size value to. The target variable can be flagged as being a temporary local variable, in which case it will be created for you and removed from memory again at the end of the current action script or event.
