Global Variables

This screen shows the global variables in the application.

The global variable is an external parameter required for running the application. The application can include global variables in the WHERE clause, field definitions and names, event programming, and so on.

Global variables are defined in brackets ([variable]). These variables must be passed to the application being implemented through one of the methods: Session, Post, and Get

if you need to use Database Identifiers in or tables, we recommend using the double quotation marks( ) instead of the brackets( [ ] ) because of the conflict with the Global Variables syntax of Scriptcase. Using the brackets as database identifiers may lead to problems in the Scriptcase applications.

We do not recommend using session variables (global variables) with the same name as the table fields.

In this case, the variable v_customerid appears in the global variables configuration.
