bare-bones script

A script is made up of some mandatory script lines, and some additional, optional, script lines.


When you create a new Script, all the required script lines of a Script are automatically created and displayed in the script editor.


The Sections of a Script


There are 2 sections to a Script:


GlobalThe 2 script lines in this section set the options for the diary as a book, Book Format, and for the International options (holidays, languages).
Begin-EndThe heart of the Script lies between the Begin and End markers. In analogy to a physical diary, there are some Front Pages (info pages, possibly a yearly grid, …), a Main Grid, and some Back Pages. As we will see in The various Q++Studio script lines, this is the section where many new types of pages can be added.

The script lines within the Begin-End markers correspond to the organization of most real-life diaries: some info pages at the front, a dated section, and finally some info pages at the back.


None of the above lines can be deleted. A more complex Script (see sample below) will have script lines that are children of the front and back pages, as well as inserts applied to the Main Grid.    


The indentation of the script lines makes the parent-child relationship between lines clear.


It is possible, and very frequent, to have DiaryGridLines in the front and back pages (the Main Grid may be a weekly grid, and there may be a yearly grid at the front and back).

A DiaryGridLine can be a child of another DiaryGridline, indirectly, through an Insert script line.

These DiaryGridLines can be used in the same manner as the Main Grid (ie. they can have Inserts).
