Adds a value to cells in matrix.
We loop over all rows in all columns for the range and add the given value to the numbers.
If the cell doesn't contain a number, it's converted to a number like GetAsNumber().

Use Matrix.New or Matrix.NewWithSQL to create the matrix object before adding something to it.


Add one to each cell:

Set Variable [ $matrix ; Value: MBS("Matrix.New"; 5; 6) ]
# set values
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 0; "Joe¶Miller¶New York¶123") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 1; "Bob¶Jones¶Washington¶234") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 2; "Jane¶Stones¶Los Angeles¶567") ]
# add one to all
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.Add"; $matrix; 1; 0; 3; 3; 3) ]
# show numbers
Show Custom Dialog [ "Values" ; MBS("Matrix.GetColumn"; $matrix; 3) ]
# free
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.Release"; $matrix) ]
