A number might be too large for the field in which it displays, resulting in an error message that is similar to the following: Value too long for field %1 (maximum size %2) To prevent a floating-point error Use the Convert Number to Fixed Decimal Method method at an appropriate location in the calculation or when you save the value in a variable. For example, use x.toFixed(2) in a calculation instead of using VariableA. For more information, see “Convert Number to Fixed Decimal Method” on page 162 . Using the Literal Value of a Special Character Each of the following characters possesses a special programmatic meaning in Siebel eScript: Double quotes (") Single quote (') Semi-colon (;) Ampersand (&) Hard return In some situations, you might need to use the literal value of one of these characters. For example:

Add a carriage return in a text file. Specify a file system path. To use the literal value of a special character Precede the special character with two backslashes (\\). You must use two backslashes in Siebel eScript. It recognizes a single backslash as indicating that the next character identifies a character combination. For more information, see “How Siebel eScript Handles Special Characters In a String” on page 90 . Running Browser Script When Siebel CRM Starts a Siebel Application You can configure Siebel CRM to run Browser Script when it starts a Siebel application. Siebel CRM normally runs code in the declaration section of the Browser Script for a business service when it starts this application. It interprets as standard HTML any code that exists in the general declaration section. When it loads this application in the Browser, it attaches each Browser script as a Script tag in an HTML page. This configuration allows you to use the general declaration section as the Browser counterpart of the Application Start Server event. To run Browser script when Siebel CRM starts a Siebel application Use code in the general declaration section of the Browser script. Releasing an Object from Memory For some objects, if you no longer require the object, then you must explicitly release that object from memory.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
