Just the Verbosity trees. It is getting mixed reviews.Also, one other item is the ValueChangedEvent has another parameter that gives you the ability to determine if the current object that just had a value change is the object that has focus.
bIsFocusObject. So you can say If bIsFocusObject Then [Put your code you want triggered if the object has focus here.] Return EndIf And it would only get triggered if the object has focus.Another set of functions gives date conversions and weekday. I asked for those when we were working on the Outlook Calendar support.
:function ParseLongDate:Description Formats a locale-specific date string in a long date format into a string in the standard form YYYY/MM/DD.
:Returns String The formatted date. :Param String/strDate a date string in a Locale specific format :Optional:Param String/locale The LCID representing the format of strDate. Defaults to the system LCID.
:Category System :function ParseLongDateToShortDate:Description Formats a locale-specific date string in a long date format into the corresponding short date format.
:Returns String The formatted date in short date format. :Param String/strDate a date string in a Locale specific long date format :Optional:Param String/locale The LCID representing the format of strDate. Defaults to the system LCID.
:Category System :function ParseShortDate:Description Formats a locale-specific date string in a short date format into a string in the standard form YYYY/MM/DD.
:Returns String The formatted date. :Param String/strDate a short date string in a Locale specific format :Optional:Param String/strYear A year to be added to the shortDateString. If not provided then the shortDateString is assumed to be fully qualified :Param String/locale The LCID representing the format of strDate. Defaults to the system LCID.
:Category System :function GetDayOfWeek:Description Returns a localized string representing the day of the week given a date in the YYYY/MM/DD format. The day can be either the long day format or the short day format.
:Returns String The day of the week :Param String/strDate a date in the format YYYY/MM/DD :Optional:Param String/strDayType "L" or "S". Determines if the day of the week is returned as a short abbreviated day or a long day. Defaults to a long day name. :Param String/locale The LCID to be used for determining the language in which the day name should be returned. Defaults to the system LCID.
:Category System I'm sure there are more, but I'll have to post them as I remember them.FS has always been bad about documenting such stuff, even internally. Many times in-house scripters run across new functions by accident that development forgot to mention.

Thanks, Dennis, for being a great source of scripting information! As long as we're on the topic of language changes in JAWS 9, are there any other syntax enhancements you can think of?

I can't think of an example of the Self scope identifier off the top of my head, but in most cases, if the function is in the current script set, no identifier is necessary. As for your second question about using scope to call a function that resides in a script set that isn't referenced in a use statement, or indefault, there is no way to do that because the script set in question wouldnot be loaded at the time. You'd need to tell Jaws that you wanted to use that script set's function within the current application, which is what the use statement is for! <grin> As for an example on calling a script up the chain... You can do that as long as you are not calling it from the same function that would get called in the current level script set. For example, In Outlook 2007, if you had use "Microsoft Word 2007.jsb" and you had Function SayLine() If NoMoreMessageItems() Then ; Message list is empty... ReadStatusLine() Return EndIf SayLine() ; Drops to the SayLine in Word 2007. EndFunction And in Word, you had Function SayLine()If gsApplicationName=="Outlook" Then ; In Outlook, but in the message body. Microsoft_Outlook_2007::SayLine() ; Calls the Outlook SayLine function.Return EndIf SayLine() ; Drops to the SayLine in default. EndFunctionThis would cause the loop effect, since the Outlook SayLine would drop intothe Word SayLine, then the Word SayLine would call the Outlook SayLine.If you had the Word SayLine function call something other than the SayLine,then it would be ok: Function SayLine() If gsApplicationName=="Outlook" Then ; In Outlook, but in message body. Microsoft_Outlook_2007::SayFocusedObject() ; Call Outlook's SayFocusedObject function. Return EndIf SayLine() ; Drops to the SayLine in default. EndFunction You're calling up the chain, but not the function that called the Word SayLine initially, so no problem with a loop. Hth.

Hello Dennis, Can you explain again what is self used for? In my understanding self will make explicit that the function being called is from the same jss file, but if this is true then the self key word isn't that usefull, sinse you can call the function without scope identifiers anyways and the compiler will assume you're referring to the version of the function defined in the current jss file. Another question is the following: can you use a scope identifier to a file you didn't referenced with a use statement (other than default)? And still another question ... can you provide me a sample about how one could call a function (up the chain)?
