Variables are nothing but container for data. The value of a variable changes during the execution of a script and hence the name 'variable'. Variables can be given value, and values once given can be altered any number of times. The Deluge Set <Variable> is used in form action and field action scripts, to set a value to a variable. Variables in deluge are strongly typed , in the sense, variables defined to hold number will hold only numbers till the script termination and variables defined to hold string will hold only string values till the end of script execution. The two types of variables used in deluge scripting are :
variable = value;
type = date
date1 = zoho.currentdate;
In the following deluge code, the value of the field PatientID is calculated based on the form values specified for the First_Name and Last_Name and the value returned by the zoho variable zoho.currenttime.
input.PatientID = input.First_Name + " " + input.Last_Name + " " + zoho.currenttime;
