Support .NET Scripting in Function Wizard

complete

(combit Team) #1

Currently it is not possible to code loops or more complex function flows - users need to resort to adding custom functions. It would be great to have the possibility to work with .NET scripts as List & Label functions.

Additionally it would be great to have the report’s object model as objects for the script.


(Lank J) #3

That would be great, at least that looping if nothing else.

Promoted to “planned” status. For a start, we’ll probably stick to a quite basic implementation (i.e. no advanced debugging support, no intellisense). This might then well be extended in following versions.

I think you should go the easy way and use Powershell! Powershell is not as popular as Python, but for every .Net programmer an easy going.

You can implement a Powershell Host in LL and use runspaces for scripting. This even allows complete integration of the already available DOM-Tree. Think about it!

For enterprises Powershell has a constrained language mode: http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2014/04/04/build-a-tool-that-uses-constrained-powershell-endpoint.aspx

Even debugging is already baked in: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn807175.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
