Constants Details

DATETIME

Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.

Returns

Sample

var dateVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('globals', 'gDate', JSVariable.DATETIME);
dateVar.defaultValue = 'now';
application.output(scopes.globals.gDate); // Prints the current date and time.

INTEGER

Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.

Returns

Supported Clients

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient,MobileClient

Sample

var intVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('globals', 'gInt', JSVariable.INTEGER);
intVar.defaultValue = 997;
application.output(scopes.globals.gInt); // Prints 997

MEDIA

Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.

Returns

Supported Clients

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient,MobileClient

Sample

var mediaVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('globals', 'gMedia', JSVariable.MEDIA);
mediaVar.defaultValue = 'new Array(1, 2, 3, 4)';
application.output(scopes.globals.gMedia); // Prints out the array with four elements.

NUMBER

Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.

Returns

Supported Clients

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient,MobileClient

Sample

var numberVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('globals', 'gNumber', JSVariable.NUMBER);
numberVar.defaultValue = 192.334;
application.output(scopes.globals.gNumber); // Prints 192.334

TEXT

Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.

Returns

Supported Clients

SmartClient,WebClient,NGClient,MobileClient

Sample

var txtVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('globals', 'gText', JSVariable.TEXT);
txtVar.defaultValue = '"some text"'; // Use two pairs of quotes if you want to assign a String as default value.
application.output(scopes.globals.gText); // Prints 'some text' (without quotes).

Property Details

defaultValue

The default value of the variable.

It is interpreted as a JS expression.

For form variables ,setting this property requires the form instances to be destroyed (history.remove("formName")).
If you want to use a default value for a newly created variable  create the variable using the 3 parameter version newVariable(name,type,defaultValue).

For INTEGER variables it can be an integer constant, like 10 for example.
For NUMBER variables it can be a real constant, like 22.41. For DATETIME
variables it can be "now", or a JS expression like "new Date()". For TEXT
variables it can be any string surrounded with quotes, like "'some text'".
