Displaying a variable’s value in a report

Top  Previous  Next

Variables can be declared and used locally within a script. Once declared a script variable can have a value assigned to it. Here is a simple example of a script variable in use:





 MyVariable: String;


 MyVariable := 'Hello!';



C++ Script:


string MyVariable;



 MyVariable = "Hello!";



The variable’s value can be displayed in a “Text” object, for example, by typing '[MyVariable]' into the object.


A variable’s name must be unique. This means the name must not duplicate the name of any other report object, standard function or constant. If there is an error in a script, a message will be displayed when the report is run and report construction will be stopped.
