Constants Details
DATETIME
Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.
Returns
Number
Sample
var dateVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gDate', JSVariable.DATETIME);
dateVar.defaultValue = 'now';
application.output(globals.gDate); // Prints the current date and time.
INTEGER
Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.
Returns
Number
Sample
var intVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gInt', JSVariable.INTEGER);
intVar.defaultValue = 997;
application.output(globals.gInt); // Prints 997
MEDIA
Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.
Returns
Number
Sample
var mediaVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gMedia', JSVariable.MEDIA);
mediaVar.defaultValue = 'new Array(1, 2, 3, 4)';
application.output(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
Number
Sample
var numberVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gNumber', JSVariable.NUMBER);
numberVar.defaultValue = 192.334;
application.output(globals.gNumber); // Prints 192.334
TEXT
Constant to be used when the type of a variable needs to be specified.
Returns
Number
Sample
var txtVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gText', JSVariable.TEXT);
txtVar.defaultValue = '"some text"'; // Use two pairs of quotes if you want to assing a String as default value.
application.output(globals.gText); // Prints 'some text' (without quotes).

Property Details
defaultValue

The default value of the variable.

It is interpreted as a JS expression.

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'.

Returns
String
Sample
var intVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gInt', JSVariable.INTEGER);
intVar.defaultValue = 997;
application.output(globals.gInt); // Prints 997
var numberVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gNumber', JSVariable.NUMBER);
numberVar.defaultValue = 192.334;
application.output(globals.gNumber); // Prints 192.334
var dateVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gDate', JSVariable.DATETIME);
dateVar.defaultValue = 'now';
application.output(globals.gDate); // Prints the current date and time.
var txtVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gText', JSVariable.TEXT);
txtVar.defaultValue = '"some text"'; // Use two pairs of quotes if you want to assing a String as default value.
application.output(globals.gText); // Prints 'some text' (without quotes).
var mediaVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gMedia', JSVariable.MEDIA);
mediaVar.defaultValue = 'new Array(1, 2, 3, 4)';
application.output(globals.gMedia); // Prints out the array with four elements.
name
The name of the variable.
Returns
String
Sample
var gVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gtext', JSVariable.TEXT);
gVar.name = 'anotherName';
gVar.defaultValue = '"default text"';
// The next two lines will print the same output.
application.output(globals[gVar.name]);
application.output(globals.anotherName);
variableType
The type of the variable. Can be one of: TEXT, INTEGER, NUMBER, DATETIME or MEDIA.
Returns
Number
Sample
var g = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gtext',JSVariable.TEXT);
globals.gtext = 'some text';
g.variableType = JSVariable.DATETIME;
globals.gtext = 'another text'; // This will raise an error now, because the variable is not longer of type text.

Method Details
getUUID

UUID getUUID ()

Returns the UUID of the variable
Returns
UUID
Sample
var dateVar = solutionModel.newGlobalVariable('gDate', JSVariable.DATETIME);
application.output(dateVar.getUUID().toString());
