Introduction

What are Hash Variables?

Hash Variables give users greater flexibility and freedom in accessing useful information or relevant run-time values from the system.
A hash variable is a special hash-escaped keyword that can be used in :

  • Form Builder
  • List Builder
  • UI Builder
  • BeanShell code
  • Supported plugin configuration properties
  • Activity name in Workflow Designer
  • External Form URL when mapping an activity to an external form

to return the value of some useful runtime variables from Joget components. Download the hash variable demonstration app for a quick look.

To conveniently access the list of all hash variables available, use the shortcut combination Ctrl + Shift + 3 in any of the components above to bring up the Property Assistant.


Nested Hash Variable

A Hash Variable can be used inside another Hash Variable to form a Nested Hash Variable.

The syntax for the inner Hash Variable is wrapped by a pair of {curly bracket}.

Syntax / Format
#prefix.{prefix.variableKey}#
Here are some examples:
Example
#date.{envVariable.dateFormat}#
#user.{variable.username}.firstName#
#form.tableChild.field1[{form.tableParent.childId}]#



Form Hash Variable by Index

You can pass an index or primary key value to a Hash Variable for retrieval.

The syntax for the inner Hash Variable is wrapped by a pair of [square brackets] .

Syntax / Format
#form.myTable.fieldId.[primaryKeyValue]#

Here are some examples:

Example
#form.contact.name[007]# where "007" is the primary key or "id" value of database table "app_fd_contact".

Escaping the Resultant Hash Variable

The parsed/returned Hash Variable may cause incompatibility with the current context/environment such as syntax error in a script. Therefore, one may pass in additional parameters into the hash variable declared to escape certain characters. Before ending a hash variable with a hash "#", add a question mark character "?" followed by the required format, for example "#form.table.photo?img2base64#". You may include multiple by defining semicolon ";" separated values.

  1. regex - Used to escape regular expression special characters
  2. json - Used to escape JSON special characters
  3. javascript - Used to escape Javascript special characters
  4. html - Used to escape HTML special characters
  5. xml - Used to escape XML special characters
  6. java - Used to escape Java special characters
  7. sql - Used to escape SQL special characters
  8. url - Used to escape URL special characters
  9. nl2br - Used to convert new line character to <br> HTML tag
  10. separator(SEPARATOR_CHARS) - Used to change the default separator ";" to the SEPARATOR_CHARS. eg. ?separator(, ) resulted "abc, def" instead of "abc;def".
  11. img2base64 - hash variable escape method to convert image tag src in a Rich Text Editor to base64 data string which can be displayed in email (however Gmail does not support Base64).
  12. expression - Used to escape String characters in nested hash variable that may otherwise conflict with syntax/symbols used in the Expression Hash Variable
  13. noescape - Used to escape SQL query strings in JDBC binders to prevent the "<>" "not equal" operator from being converted, i.e. disables XSS prevention checking. (Available from Joget DX 7.0.7 and higher.)

Note: The following escape formats will not be checked for XSS prevention: "regex, json, javascript, html, xml, java, sql, url, expression, noescape".

Example
#envVariable.script?java#
#envVariable.script?nl2br;json#
#form.table.users?separator(, )#

Hash Variable Return Values

  • If the record does not exist, "#form.table.field#" returns the same = "#form.table.field#". Use the ternary operator ( condition ? exprIfTrue : exprIfFalse ) to check and set to NULL if the return value matches the origin hash variable (if used in BeanShell or Javascript).
  • If record exist but field is empty, "#form.table.field#" returns empty = "".
  • If record exist and field has value "abc", "#form.table.field#" returns the value = "abc".

Hash Variable Features In Joget DX Community Edition

Some hash variables listed below are not available in the Joget Community Edition, read the Detailed Plugin Comparison Between Editions for more information.


Hash Variable - Property Assistant

New Feature

This is a new feature in Joget DX 8.

Property Assistant is a new feature in Joget DX 8, that allows you to quickly access and insert Hash Variables (and others) in any form element, UI element or list.

The Property Assistant allows you to choose a hash variable's attributes from a select box (Figure 1). 

Figure 1: Property Assistant - Hash Variable Attributes Selection

You can also insert Nested Hash Variables easily using the Property Assistant by clicking on the desired attribute that will include the nested variable and then clicking back on the variable list to choose a variable to insert. (See Figure 2)

If the "Run Process Primary Key" option in General Settings is set to "Process instance ID", the "#process.recordId#" will return the same value as "#process.processId#".

Localization

The returned value would follow current logged in user's timezone. If user's information is not available, then it will use server's timezone.

Attributes
  • #date.dateFormat#
  • #date.dateUnit[+-]integerValue.dateFormat#

  • #date.dateFormat|TZ# A new feature in Joget DX v7.0.8 to display the date time adjusted based on the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) timezone value (0 to 12), for example, "#date.yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm|5#" will display the current date time based on UTC plus 5 hours. Read Display Date Time Based On UTC.


Options

dateFormat

  • In Java date format; e.g., yyyy-MM-dd for 2011-06-01

dateUnit

  • YEAR
  • MONTH
  • DAY

integerValue

  • Numeric integer value. E.g. 10


  • #date.DATE_FORMAT_TO[INPUT_DATE_VALUE| INPUT_VALUE_FORMAT]#

  • #date.dateUnit[+-]integerValue.DATE_FORMAT_TO[INPUT_DATE_VALUE| INPUT_VALUE_FORMAT]#

INPUT_DATE_VALUE accepts any date value and even nested hash variables, e.g: form data hash variable. See example in sample attributes below.

INPUT_VALUE_FORMAT is the INPUT_DATE_VALUE original format.

DATE_FORMAT_TO defines the format to change to.

The above date hash with format control will use the login user's time zone setting and automatically adjust the date and time. If the user's time zone setting is blank, it wil revert to the System Settings "System Time Zone" property. If you want to perform a date formatting without using the time zone value, download and import the Date Formatter Hash Variable plugin from Joget Marketplace.
