Novell SecureLogin 6.0 Scriptiing


When creating a PickList in Novell Secure Login (NSL) Application Definitions a list item with a null string explicitly set as the value shows the displayed text as its value instead of the null string.


This is working as designed. NSL does not recognize the null string as a valid entry and falls back based on what is in the documentation to showing the displayed text as the PickList entry's value.

Additional Information

Sample code:

PickListAdd "Nothing"""
PickListAdd "Calculator""c:\windows\system32\calc.exe"
PickListAdd "Firfox""c:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe"

PickListDisplay ?someVariable "Pick An App To Load on Startup"
