Formatting Syntax


Tip - it's JavaScript

There's something you want DroidScript to do and you can't find out whether DroidScript can do it.

Maybe you want to find the current time or date but the and DroidScript docs don't mention it.

Remember, you are mostly using JavaScript. If JavaScript can do it, there's a good chance DroidScript can do it.

The number of times I've typed things like javascript slice into google is legion. I often end up at for my answer.

If you look at js sample code, you may need to ignore the bit that tries to display it for you such as

  document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = Date();

and replace it with something from DroidScript like

  txt.SetText( Date() );

but you'll find lots of things JavaScript can do that are not specific to DroidScript.
