Using Variables in Automise

Variables in Automise are the key to making your projects dynamic. Variables can be used in nearly every text property field of actions, for example in fields that specify file paths, directories etc. Variables can also be modified at run time by using either the Set Variable Action or in the Active Scripting events. Variables defined in Automise can be referenced in the active script events just like normal (e.g VBScript or JScript) variables. Only Project and User variables can be modified. Project and User Variables can also be made available as environment variables to applications that are executed by Automise.

The Macro option turns the Variable into a function that always re-evaluates it's default value expression when its value is requested. Non macro variables evaluate their default values once at the start of a build.
