Using an Activ Script statement

harv A very basic question - I've used this before
but have now forgotten.

If I want to use a statement in immediate mode such as


what additional code or settings  must I add to
tell the compiler that this is an Activ statement
and not normal HTML text
(eg should it be enclosed within  script start/end statements)

harv To elaborate on my question above.

Take the example of a control statement

Suppose I want to show 'YES' or 'NO' in page1.htm of a
book depending on whether the month is January or not
using a control statement such as

   set (var,"yes" )  
   set (var,"no" )

Would I have to put this control statement in an ON
Start script, with var being a global type variable
which I then refer to in  page1.htm  ?

In other words I can't put the control statement
directly into page1.htm ?

harv Here's another attempt to explain what I'm trying to

It's quite simple.

Depending on the value of a rebranded field I want to
provide a link either to URL1 or URL 2 in the book.

It seems that I can only do the test in, for example, a
start script. I would then need to store the required
URL in a variable to be used later. But is there a concept of
such a (global) variable ?

EBookCompiler Activ Variables are persistent. They last for as long as the ebook is running

What you want in HTML is something like

A HREF="#!myscript.as"

And myscript.as contains something like (this may have errors)

IF ( {var} == 1 )

harv Sunil,

That is in fact how I eventually did it (using the OPEN statement)
