Application properties - Handler tab
Application node, Pages, Data group
Reacts to actions such as saving and deleting.
Is activated when the page is rendered.
Examples for the use of handlers
Action handlers can be used, for example, to write values from a data record when a new record is
saved in a processing context, such as to create a history of a process.
An additional example of an application would be to generate IDs, such as NAME_YEAR_CUMULATIVE_NUMBER
is required. For security reasons, the use of a handler is advantageous as well, since code is run on the server instead of client-side.
The scripts are run in the corresponding environment where they are saved –
scripts on a page are only run for that page,
while scripts in data groups are run on all pages and actions contained in
the data group, and scripts in the application node are run application-wide.
