Basic JSL: Working With Column Dialogs and Buttons ( US 2018 224 )

Level: Beginner
Byron Wingerd, JMP Systems Engineer, SAS

In JMP, it is easy to capture and reuse scripts. Often the next step is to build custom dialogs, which use these scripts with different tables and column names. These basic projects can easily get derailed by difficulties in capturing file names and paths as well as useable column names. In this talk, I will cover methods for capturing paths, files and column names, as well as an essential JSL programing strategy that will make working with these tricky elements much less treacherous. Whether you've been writing JSL for a while or you are just getting started, these tips and tricks for "peeling function onions" will prevent tears so that you can spend your time developing your applications rather than trying to diagnose cryptic problems.
