Name

msg:context_set — Sets a context variable

Synopsis

msg:context_set(type, key, value);

type: numeric
key: string
value: string

Description

Set a context variable. Legal values for type are:

  • msys.core.ECMESS_CTX_MESS

  • msys.core.ECMESS_CTX_CONN

msg:context_set(msys.core.ECMESS_CTX_MESS, "MyVariable", "MyValue")

Note

The companion function, msg:context_get, always returns a string. If, for example, MyValue is a local numeric variable, msg:context_get will still return a string.

Because this function is in the msys.core namespace, an explicit require('msys.core') is not necessary.
