That is mainly caused by a new variables organization.
Let me try to make it visible for different group of users:
- The 'Consumer' using existing scripts:
For you nothing is changing. But maybe you are intersted in 'theory' at the bottom
- The .Script developer:
Propably you have to change some of your scripts
- Setting the value of a variable, e.g.
- Changing the value of an existing variable, e.g.
- It does not matter whether the variable is defined under [Variables] or not.
However, it is good for documentation to define all variables here which will be set later
- This variable must be defined and initialised, either by
- An entry under [Variables]
- A previous explicitly set value
(Symbolic, very compressed explanation)
Now the variables are organized in something like a 'level order'
- Global variables coming from WinBuilder.ini
- Project variables coming from script.project
- Local variables coming from the acdtual script.
Additionally every variable level has two instances:
This contains how the variable is defined, maybe with other variables referenced:
This contains the completely resolved value:
%target_win%=C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Peter\Desktop\WB Archiv\Beta8\Target\I386
That makes the use of 'System,RefreshVars' obsolete.
In most cases this command has been used to resolve the 'Original' instance.
Starting with WinBuilder 075 beta 1, the 'System,RefreshVars' command brings a warning message, and the .Script developer should remove the statement from his script.
But there may be one situation, which in the past also has been solved by 'System,RefreshVars':
Imagine that you have a variable %start% with initial value FIRST
And you have a variable %result% defined as %start%_and_something
%result% is evaluated to FIRST_and_something
Now you change: Set,%start%,FINISH
%result% is still evaluated to FIRST_and_something
To resolve this, you execute the command
Now %result% is evaluated to FINISH_and_something
I hope that some understanding remains!
BTW: If a forum's user which is a better teacher like me, can translate this into understandable English:
