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.

HCL 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, HCL 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.
