The Data field of the FoxCode table generally contains script code to be executed by user-defined IntelliSense scripts. However, it also can be used just to store data used by scripts. This type of metadata is passed automatically to a script by the FoxCode parameter object. This object reference is typically stored in a variable called oFoxcode in IntelliSense scripts.
