Stored procedures
Calls an external script (.asp or .php) and returns the result in a string. An HTTP request is performed: you have the ability to use a POST method or a GET method.
// Runs the "Script1.php" script found at the root of the Web site
// and returns the result in MyBuffer
MyBuffer is Buffer
MyBuffer = ScriptExecute("/Script1.php")
// Login page in asp. Sends 3 parameters with the POST method
MyBuffer is Buffer
MyBuffer = ScriptExecute("/ASP/Login.asp", ...
"Name=BOB&Pass=My+Secret&Lang=3", True)
// Retrieve the "home" page of the "server2" site
MyBuffer is Buffer
MyBuffer = ScriptExecute("http://www.server2.csom/default.htm")
HTMSTC_HTMLStatic = MyBuffer
<Result> = ScriptExecute(<Script name> [, <"Name1=Param1&Name2=Param2&..."> [, <Runtime method>]])
<Result>: Buffer or character string
Result of ASP script. In most cases, this result can be displayed by StringDisplay.
<Script name>: Character string

  • "http://ServerName/Address.asp": the Address.asp script is found on the "ServerName" computer
  • "/Scripts/MyScript.php": MyScript.php is found on the current server, in the "/Scripts" site subdirectory.
  • you have the ability to use a secure address (https)
<"Name1=Param1&Name2=Param2&...">: Optional character string
Parameters intended for the script. This string contains for each parameter:
  • the parameter name,
  • the sign'=',
  • the parameter value.
Two parameters are separated by the sign'&'.
<Runtime method>: Optional boolean
