There is no New Script command. Instead, to open a new script window, you use the New Window() function and then send it a message to tell it that it’s a script window:
ww = New Window( "Window Title", <<Script, "Initial Contents" );
In the New Window example above, ww is a reference to the display box that is the entire window. To write to a script window, you first need to get a reference to the part of the display box that you can write to, which is called a script box:
ed = ww[Script Box(1)];
Using the reference ed, you can add text, remove text, and get the text that is already there.
ed << Get Text();
"Initial Contents"
Use Set Text to set all the text in the script window. The following command clears all text in the Script Window and then adds aaa=3; followed by a return:
ed << Set Text( "aaa=3;\!N" );
Use Append to add additional text to the end of the script window.
ed << Append Text( "bbb=1/10;" );
ed << Append Text( "\!Nccc=4/100;" );
Use the Get Line Text command to get the text at the line of a specified line number. Use the Set Line Text command to replace a specified line of text with new text.
ed << Get Line Text( 2 );
ed << Set Line Text( 2, "bbb = 0.1;" );
Use the Get Line Count message to get the total number of lines in the script. The Get Lines message returns a list of each line in the script as a string.
ed << Get Line Count();
ed << Get Lines();
Use the Reformat message to automatically format a script for easier reading.
ed << Reformat();
ed << Run();
To close the script window without saving the script, send the window the Close Window message, just like you can do with any JMP window.
ww << Close Window( nosave );
To save and view the script, use the Save Text and Load Text File messages:
ww = New Window( "Test", <<Script, "Open(\!"$SAMPLE_DATA\Big\!");");
ww << Save Text( "$TEMP/Test.jsl" );
Write( Load Text File( "$TEMP/Test.jsl" ) );
Note: When the script is loaded into the script window, the window is considered “dirty” or modified. Use <<Set Dirty(0) to remove this property. Otherwise, you are prompted to save the script when you close the window.
ww = New Window( "Test", <<Script, "Open(\!"$SAMPLE_DATA\Big\!");");
ww << Save Text( "$TEMP/Test.jsl" );
ww << Close Window();
