This method steps to the next raster in the series. If the current raster is the last one in the series, the Next method steps to the first one. Use this method when you just want to retrieve data from the next raster, regardless of where you are in the series.


; Start the application
; Locate a raster series file
seriesFile = Filepath('AirTemp.series', Subdir=['data','time_series'], $
  Root_Dir = e.Root_Dir)
; Create a raster series object
series = ENVIRasterSeries(seriesFile)
; Print the contents of the series file
PRINT, series
; Set the current raster to be the beginning 
; of 31 December (Index #8)
series.Set, 8
; Step to the next raster in the series
; Close the raster


ENVIRasterSeries.Next [, ERROR=variable]


Keywords are applied only during the initial creation of the object.


Set this keyword to a named variable that will contain any error message issued during execution of this routine. If no error occurs, the ERROR variable will be set to a null string (''). If an error occurs and the routine is a function, then the function result will be undefined.

When this keyword is not set and an error occurs, ENVI returns to the caller and execution halts. In this case, the error message is contained within !ERROR_STATE and can be caught using IDL's CATCH routine. See IDL Help for more information on !ERROR_STATE and CATCH.

See Manage Errors for more information on error handling in ENVI programming.
