Application Object : System Property

Glossary Item Box


Returns a reference to the global System object.

Property type

Read-only property


Set variable = object.System

Return Type

System Object


The System object is exposed globally. That means you can directly access the properties and methods of the System object from any routine without first obtaining a reference to that object. For example, the following VBScript code displays build number of the ArcPad application in a message box:

Sub DisplayBuildNum
   Dim objAPSystem
   Set objAPSystem = Application.System
   MsgBox objAPSystem.BuildNumber
End Sub
Since the System object is global, the above example can be shortened to the following one line example:

Sub DisplayBuildNum
   MsgBox System.BuildNumber
End Sub
