Thread: "The Weekly Kettle tip : Variables" document need to be update

    Default "The Weekly Kettle tip : Variables" document need to be update


    I followed the variable doc ( to define a variable. The Javascript code describes in the doc doesn't work on 3.0. I changed the script to following and it works.

    var todayStr = today.dat2str("yyyyMMdd");

    That situation was broken in version 2.5 as well.
    "Get output fields" would give you a Date type as output.
    At runtime there would be a String coming out of the JS script.

    That difference caused a lot of confusion. As such we don't support it anymore.
    It conflicts too much with the new engine.

    Somebody ought to file a bug report for this though.
