Data Types

Following is the list of data types in macros. Properties can be of one of these data types and variables can be of one of the base types.

Base Types

Name Possible Values
Bool true, false
String Any text
Numeric Any positive or negative integral or floating point value or zero (0)
Date/Time This is the type of date/time related properties (e.g. createdTime, lastModifiedTime) in several objects. If converted to a string or used in a string context (as a parameter to String functions) it has the following format: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.000Z as specified here. Date/Time functions can be used to easily retrieve parts of this and convert them to user readable strings.
Array A set of values of any base type. See Arrays.
Object A OneNote object or a dialog box.

Restricted Types

Restricted types are String types that can only have one of a set of possible values.

For objects that aren't selected, it will have a value of "none", while for selected objects it will have a value of "all" or "partial" depending on how much of it is selected. For instance a partially selected paragraph will have a value of "partial".
