DbfScript Reference

Introduction

WorkflowFirst provides a built-in scripting language that enables a wide variety of functionality to be implemented right inside the web-browser without having to use any external, complex programming environments.

The scripting language is called DbfScript, which stands for Database Framework Script. It is proprietary to WorkflowFirst.

DbfScript was designed to be simple to use. The syntax of the language utilizes the easy readability of popular languages such as Visual Basic with the freedom provided by the web-based JavaScript language. The result is a comprehensive and flexible language that should be sufficient for building business logic for the simplest to most complex systems.

WorkflowFirst provides a built-in code editor which features syntax coloring and automatic indentation, features usually found in desktop integrated development environments, right inside your browser window.

You can also check out the example scripts, if you prefer to learn by example.
