  • Is an app aware of its own app id?

    Is there anything that tells a running NAB app, or say a BTN program clicked from an app, what its own app id is?
    Something maybe like a global variable or utility function call?

    I am considering writing a generic behavior for popping up a Help Document from each business app. I was thinking of naming the document after the app name.
    Then the generic behavior (BTN prog? Script?) would derive the document name, looking up the App Name from VVAPPS based on the app id.

    Is there anything like this, or another suggestion you may have?

    Hi Bob,

    Yes you can pull in the app id using vvIn_Num getting the value of app;

    Example:
    Code:
    appID = vvIn_num('app');
