Dozens of events within the Malvern Manifest System (such as pressing the Print button) trigger customized functions within your Malvern Link script. These functions can simply import or export data or they can perform highly specialized business rules designed to automate your shipping process and reduce errors.

 

See a sample shipping system integration script.While Malvern Link shares much of its' syntax with VBScript, it offers many time-saving features not found in VBScript. For example, users are not limited by VBScript's stripped down features. Also included is a powerful editor and debugger.

 

As the table below shows, Malvern Link's language features are nearly identical to VBA's. Malvern Link ActiveX Scripting Control lets you use the same powerful editing and debugging features you may be used to in Visual Basic. The only major difference is the forms editor is not as advanced as in VBA. However, you can easily develop add-on functions in VB (or other languages) and integrate to them from Malvern Link.
