Working with scripts

A script is composed of statements in the LotusScript® language. LotusScript® code can be organized into applications, modules, sections, functions, and statements.

IBM® software provides objects that you use as building blocks to create an application. Each object has an associated set of events; each event indicates that an action in an application has occurred. You write scripts to define responses to these events.

Besides direct user manipulation, IBM® software applications or the system can also initiate events. For example, editing a document in a database is an event that is internal to a database application.
