Appendix F: Customization Scripts

This appendix is intended as a quick reference for writing user scripts. For more information about user scripts, see Customizing with User Scripts.

The user scripts described in this Appendix differ significantly from program-generated user scripts (that is, user scripts created by the Create Scripts command in the Client Console or the dbutility createscripts command). Program-generated user scripts set additional bits in the control tables. These bits allow the redefine command and the Client Configurator—whose support code is compatible with the redefine command—to restore changes to the client control tables.

If you use the Client Configurator and want the ability to restore the client control tables, you'll need to set some additional fields whenever you make a change.
