Adds the code to the specified script.

Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
WindowsScript 1.1 No Yes Yes, Windows only No No
MBS( "WindowsScript.AddCode"; ScriptID; Code )   More

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
ScriptID The ID of a WindowsScript in memory.
Code the code to add to the script

Description

Adds the code to the specified script.
Used to build a script in memory. You can use this function more then once on the same script. If you add code that overlaps with code that is already in the script then the last one added takes precedence. For Ex. IF you add FUNCTION HelloWorld() HelloWorld = "HELLO WORLD" END FUNCTION To a VBScript that already has the function "HelloWorld()" in it, it is replaced by your new version. If the code can't be added to the script one of the following is returned - "MBS: Missing ScriptID." - "MBS: Failed to create Windows Script object." - description of exception
If you use VBScript, you don't need "dim" keyword for defining variables.
