On this screen you can define the messages that will be displayed on each validation type (Insert, Update and Delete). You can also define messages for SQL errors.


Messages Interface Messages.

  • Message to confirm Delete: Displays a customized message asking to confirm the record deletion.

If you make no changes, the application will use the default values for messages. Those values can be configured in Locales -> Application Language.

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.

Global variables Interface. Global variables Interface.


Select CustomerID, CustomerName from Customers WHERE CustomerID = '[v_customerid]'

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.

  • Attribute : name of the variable in the application.
  • Value : Defines the behavior of the variables, this content is divided in three blocks, they are:
    • Scope : Defines how the variable is received by the application. If a variable has been defined that it’s received by a POST method and has been approved by the GET method, the content is not accepted. Methods of passing variable values:
    • Session : In this option, the variable must be created as a PHP session variable by another application.
    • GET : Defines that the variable must be passed by the URL, that is, visible by the browser.
    • POST : Defines that the variable must be passed through the POST method of a HTML form.
    • Settings : Does not validate (check) the variable at runtime.
    • Type (In / Out) : Defines whether the variable is input or output.
  • Description : Indicates where the variable is being used.

Synchronize table

This process will performs a comparison between the definitions of application fields and the connected database fields. If there is any change within the connected table, such as adding a new field, exclusion, or a change in the data type, the changes will appear visible like in the image below:

Table synchronization interface. Table synchronization interface.

After accessing the function from the link “Synchronize table” you will see a comparison table between the application fields (left table) and the database table fields (right table), like the image above, the fields highlighted in “red” will be deleted of the application, the highlighted fields in “Green” will be inserted in the form, and the highlighted fields in “orange” will be updated, so data type will be updated.

To rename a field in the database table, the table synchronization effect, by comparison, will be the same as deleting a field that existed in the application and the inclusion of a new field.
