Case Sensitivity in Siebel eScript
Siebel eScript is case sensitive. A variable named
testvar is a different variable than one named
TestVar, and both of them can exist in a script at the same time. Thus, the following code fragment defines two separate variables:
var testvar = 5;
var TestVar = "five";
Identifiers in Siebel eScript are case sensitive. For example, to raise an error from the server, the TheApplication().RaiseErrorText() method could be used:
TheApplication().RaiseErrorText("an error has occurred");
If you change the capitalization to
TheApplication().raiseerrortext("an error has occurred");
the Siebel eScript interpreter generates an error message.
Control statements are also case sensitive. For example, the statement
while is valid, but the statement
While is not.
