VBScript view variable contents
« on: August 30, 2018, 11:52:08 pm »
I've created a variable within a script and I wish to be able to view the information stored under that variable, is there a way to do that?

If you debug the script you can use the "Local Variables" window to inspect these.

Alternative is to print them using Session.Output

And if you need that value within your model, you could store that it in a tagged value associated with the element or association it has some context to...

I often use tagged value as containers for metadata that is derived via scripts an example might be the "completeness of the specification" of one of my elements... (say from a scale of -1 to 4 or an enumeration of n/a, not started, incomplete, acceptable, completed; then using a shape-script altering the elements color or other adornment visually to indicate the status...)
