Introduction to data types
A data type tells the computer what something is so that it can be processed properly. CRMScript has 4 primitive data types and a huge range of complex types defined by the built-in classes.
Data types apply to:
- literal values
- parameters in functions
- return type of functions
- objects of built-in classes
CRMScript is statically typed, meaning you must set the type in the declaration, and it can't be changed later.
CRMScript has 2 types of numbers:
- Integer (without decimals)
- Float (with decimals)
You can the arithmetic operators to do basic math.
Integer a = 5; Integer b = 7; Integer sum = a + b;
A text string is a sequence of characters written with quotes.
You can use the concatenation operator to join multiple strings.
String myCompany = "Super" + "Office";
The logical or boolean data type of CRMScript is Bool. Variables of this type can only have 2 values: true or false and are commonly used in comparisons and conditional statements.
