Introduction to the Script Editor

The script editor provides a friendly environment for writing and reading JSL scripts. Figure 4.2 shows basic features such as syntax coloring, inline commenting, and automatic formatting. Other common programming options are described later in this section.

Script editor features are also available in the log window and anywhere else that you can edit or write a script (for example, in the Scripting Index or Application Builder).

Tip: Consider setting the Autosave timeout value in the General preferences to automatically save open scripts at the specified number of minutes. This autosave value also applies to data tables, journals, scripts, projects, and reports.
