SBM AppScript Reference → Introduction to SBM AppScript → SBM AppScript Basics → General Information
Consider the following information when you work with SBM AppScript:
Once a script has been written, the administrator adds it to the SBM process app via SBM Composer. Next, the administrator associates the script with specific SBM transitions, notifications, or the Self-Registration form. SBM provides privilege settings controlling administrative access to the content and setup parameters of all scripts.
SBM AppScript scripts execute within the Web server component of your SBM system, where they can directly access the SBM database and generate HTML for display in the browser interface.
The SBM AppScript engine provides standard VBScript functions returning its version number as well as the SBM build number. Scripts designed to run on more than one version of SBM can use this information to determine what features are available at runtime. These functions are part of core VBScript and they are documented in any standard VBScript reference.
SBM AppScript is not a "COM" interface. The CreateObject function can only be used to create SBM objects. There is no direct interface to other Windows applications, though SBM AppScript can call Windows applications, including those written using the SBM C++-based API.
A single line in an SBM AppScript can contain no more than 1,024 characters.
