Details

  • AbsoluteCurrentValue gives the same results as CurrentValue, except that any automatic, inherited or dynamic constructs are resolved to absolute values.
  • When used to read an option that has an association on the right-hand side, AbsoluteCurrentValue will return the explicit association of the option setting merged with any inherited option settings.

AbsoluteCurrentValue fully resolves the values:

Fully resolve option association values that merge with their inherited values:

Rules with the same name but differing values will be overwritten upon inheritance:

If the value is an Association, then the associations are instead merged:
