CxScript Introduction
Updated over a week ago

CxScript is a XML-based programming language and part of your Carerix product. Use CxScipt to create templates for e-mails, documents and web-pages that should contain up to date information from your Carerix database.

For example: to print the name of a candidate the CxScript would look like the following:

<cx:write value="$"/>


To create e-mails and documents direct from your Carerix system you need templates. These templates contain a mix of static parts (text, pictures) and so called CxScript elements (see: elements).

This manual is divided into the following 3 parts:

TypesWorking with the information in CxScript it is important to know of which type each piece of information is. The information type determines the way you will be able to use the information.VariablesAll information is available through the use of variables. Which variables are there and how do you use them?ElementsNow you know the ingredients, but how to cook with them? The CxScript elements provide you the means to present the information the way you want.

How to start?

The best way to start learning CxScript is simply to try to use it. Perhaps you already know of a template you would like to change? An e-mail template would be the easiest to start with.

In Carerix, go to Mantenance > E-mail templates. Open an e-mail template you want to change. Study the content and make a small change. Try to create the e-mail now and look how your change(s) work out.

It doesn't work or you get an error message? No problem, nothing will get irrecoverable broken. Go back to the template and try again. You will see, before you know it you will get the gist of it.
