JavaScript Extensions

JavaScript Extensions

The JavaScript processor implements the following methods that are not defined in standard JavaScript. You can use these extensions in any location where the Script accepts a JavaScript expression.
Most of the functions are JavaScript implementations of transformers or actions.
extra.sum(number1, number 2, ...)
Returns the sum of the parameters.
extra.allSame(param1, param2, ...)
Returns true if all the parameters have the same value.
This function accesses a global lookup table by name.
In the Script, define a global
. Then, in a JavaScript expression, you can access the table. For example, if you define a global

extra.formatDate(date, input_format, output_format)
Formats a date or time. For more information, see DateFormatICU.
extra.substitute(text, oldSubstring, newSubstring, useRegex)
Replaces all instances of a substring with another substring. If
is true, the method interprets
as a regular expression.
extra.formatNumber(number, size_of_integer_part, number_of_decimals, sign, insert_decimal_point, unit_type)
Formats a number. For more information, see FormatNumber.
extra.insertString(text, injections_place, string_to_inject)
Inserts a string into the text. For more information, see InjectString.
Outputs the date and/or time at which the transformation started running. For more information, see TransformationStartTime.
extra.resize(text, size, padding_character, align)
Fits the input text to a specified size, padding or truncating as required. For more information, see Resize.
extra.dateAdd(date_format, date, days_to_add)
Increments a date by a given number of days. For more information about the
, see DateFormatICU.
extra.dateAddMonths(date_format, date, months_to_add)
Increments a date by a given number of months. For more information about the
, see DateFormatICU.
extra.dateAddYears(date_format, date, years_to_add)
Increments a date by a given number of years. For more information about the
, see DateFormatICU.
extra.dateDiff(date_format1, date1, date_format2, date2)
Computes the difference between two dates. For more information, see DateDiffICU.
Generates a GUID identifier. For more information, see CreateGuid. You must supply a parameter value such as 0.
Changes the text to all upper case, all lower case, or only the first letter capitalized. For more information, see ChangeCase
Reverses a string written in a right-to-left language to left-to-right. For more information, see hebrewBidi.
