Shell Properties by Context

The set of Shell properties available depends on the context. Tables in Common Shell Properties, Shell Properties for Transition Contexts, and Shell Properties for Other Contexts explain which context each shell can be used with. Each shell is more fully described in Shell Property Descriptions.

The "I/O" column in each table indicates whether the property is an input or an output. A script reads from "I" properties to get information from SBM; writing to "I" properties has no effect. Writing to "O" properties passes information back to SBM. "I/O" properties are for both reading and writing.

[output stream] is not a Shell property. This row indicates contexts in which Ext.OutputStreamExists() returns True, meaning scripts can write to the current output stream using Ext.WriteStream(). This output stream is always an HTTP connection to the user's browser.
