Internal and external Editors

In Intrexx, there exist internal editors for use in the integration of JavaScript, Groovy, and Velocity into your portal. With them, you can compose and administer your own code comfortably and easily. Alternatively, you have the ability to integrate external editors if you wish as well.

This ability exists in a central, module-spanning location: in the editor settings, which you can reach via the menu item Extras / Options.

Click on Browse here in order to enter the program path to your external editor.

If a file (such as the JavaScript file for the application) is opened in an external editor, the script button cannot be used as long as the external editor is running.

The external editor writes first to a temporary file, which will be applied to the application only after the editor is closed.

Please do not change the temporary file name. Use the "Save" function in the external editor.

Here are some examples for the setup of an external editor:


"\notepad++.exe" -multiInst ${file}


"\editplus.exe" ${file}


"/usr/bin/gedit" --new-window ${file} Entering the parameter ${file} is usually not required; however, it can be entered if the external editor expects or supports additional parameters after the file name. The file path must be enclosed in quotation marks, the parameters follow thereafter.

With the setting Field suggestion list in Groovy editor inserts ValueHolder the Field suggestion list in the Groovy editor inserts g_record["GUID"]. If the setting is not enabled, the Field suggestion list inserts g_record["GUID"].value.

Stylesheet Editor

In the Design module, you can reach this editor via the menu item Edit / Edit Stylesheet.

JavaScript Editor

In the Applications module, you can find this editor via the Script tab of the properties dialog of many application elements.

Groovy Script Editor

You can find the Groovy Script Editor in the Integration module in a data transfer, if Groovy is selected as a data source or target. Additionally, it can be reached from the Processes and the Applications module.


The Velocity Editor can be reached from the Processes module. If you define an e-mail action, you can compose messages depending on the context.

XML Editor

In the Applications module, you will find the XML tab in the Details dialog, assuming expert options have been activated. The XML of the corresponding element will be shown here.

Filter Editor

In the Applications module, filters can also be directly edited in the XML, if expert options are active. You can find filters, for example, in the properties dialog of the application elements table or selection list. Click on Expert in the filter dialog in order to open the filter editor.
