About Browser Script

Browser Script executes in and is interpreted by the browser. Browser Scripts are written in JavaScript and interact with the Document Object Model (DOM) as well as with the Siebel Object Model available in the browser through the Browser Interaction Manager. A developer can script the behavior of Siebel events as well as the browser events that are exposed through the DOM. The DOM for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are different. Using Siebel Tools you can write scripts for the appropriate browser type by selecting the appropriate User Agent.

NOTE:  Browser Script may only be used with applications which run in high interactivity mode, except when scripting Control events supported by the Browser Document Object Model. Refer to Table 67 and Table 68 for a list of supported DOM events.

Do not use browser scripts to manipulate the location of a frame or form in the Siebel application because this causes a new page to be loaded. The result is a permission denied error, as it is a violation of good security practices.

A high interactivity application can contain standard interactivity views (Home Page view and Dashboard view for example). Applet-level browser scripts cannot be used on applets in those views (the same as in standard interactivity applications). Instead the server script WebApplet_ShowControl that is not supported in high interactivity is triggered on the applets for those standard interactivity views.

For information on generating browser scripts, read Siebel Developer's Reference.
