  • Where do variables get established?

    I understand that {} contains a field variable, [] = global, and $ = local. I understand that "lang" prefix establishes language.

    These confuse me:
    {lang_sec_app_description} when the name of the field is simply 'description'.
    When I try to use {lang_sec_log} to display the security log on a menu and it doesn't display.
    {lang_othr_frmi_titl} in an insertion or update title on a form
    {lang_sec_users_fild_name} when the name of the field is simply 'name'

    Where do these variables get established (ie. dimmed)

    if you click on an event, in the code window, top right - click on the "?" It tells you, depending on the event, when various things are accessible.

    E.g

    onApplicationInit
    This event occurred before the application execute the SQL, and execute only once.

    Is used to do verifications of variables, and security verifications.

    Ex:

    if ([glo_var_department] != 'financial'){

    sc_redir(app_x.php);

    }

    onScriptInit
    These formulas are executed before the application starts. At this moment, the application locals variables are not available.

    onLoad
    This event its executed before the form is loaded. In this moment all the applications variables are availables.



    On your other point, variables like {lang_sec_app_description} are replaced with values as defined in "Locales | Application Language". You can either delete that "{lang_sec_app_description}" entry from the field and replace it with direct text of your own. Or you can go to Locales | Application Language, and define what value {lang_sec_app_description} has. Use the search at the bottom left to find that variable and update it as you see fit.
