SmartScript Elements

Questions are the main element, or object, inside a SmartScript and include such attributes as answers and data indicating how a question should display. Questions are joined together with branches and groups of questions are contained inside pages. Scripts are the broadest element and contain groups of pages. Every aspect of each script element—from text properties, to branches, to events invoking related views in your Siebel application—can be modified without affecting other elements.

SmartScript also contains event handlers that support Siebel VB and Siebel eScript methods and interactions with outside processes. For more information, see Extending Scripts with Siebel VB and Siebel eScript.

Figure 1 displays each script element and its place within the hierarchy of elements.
