    4.2 - Value



    This property represents the value (i.e. the content) of the persistent variable.


    While accessing this property the content will be either automatically written into the database or retrieved from the database.


    The value takes up to 1kB (1024 Byte) of any data, like strings, booleans, numbers or dates. Data above the 1kB limit will be truncated.


    Dim Announcement
    Set Announcement   = new PersistentVariable
    Announcement.Name  = "Welcome"
    Announcement.Value = "Default Welcome.wav"
    PlaySound Announcement.Value


    The above example defines a persistent variable with the name Welcome in the user scope of the current script user or in the group scrope of the current script group.


    The next line shows how to write into the persistent variable. The new content will be directly written into the database and is therefore persistently/permanently available.


    The next line shows how to read from the persistent variable. The content will be directly retrieved from the database. Of course it is possible to use the content of the persistent variable directly in nearly any GSE block, e.g.:
