Using the Open APIs within your AquaScripts
All of the Open APIs are available through the global variable named "aqua", which is an instance of the "AQAqua" class. The "AQAqua" class has getter methods for all Open API objects, such as AQAqua.getArchive() and AQAqua.getRandom(). Syntactically, you may access getter methods by using the name of the method without the get or set prefix (eg aqua.archive or aqua.random). With the "aqua" variable, the user may acquire instances of objects which contain specific functionality, such as the "AQRandom" object for random data generation and the "AQArchive" object for archiving files.
|aqua Global Variable||aqua.random|
Open API Reference Guide: The Open API Reference Guide provides the full technical details and documentation of each API. Getting access to the API Documentation is easy when writing AquaScripts because of its context-sensitive help that may be activated with Shift-F1 on any variable within the editor. The documentation can also be found at http://docs.aquafold.com/ads/12.0/openapi/
Open API Script Examples: A downloadable standard set of scripts is available for the application and contains examples of all the functionality available through Aqua Data Studio's Scriptable Open APIs. If you need to see how to implement a specific API Package, explore the Script Examples and edit them for your particular scenario.
