Recipe 16.9 Reading Values from a Server-Side Shared Object

16.9.1 Problem

You want to read values from a server-side shared object.

16.9.2 Solution

Use the SharedObject.getProperty( ) method.

16.9.3 Discussion

You cannot read from a server-side shared object the same way you can from a client-side shared object. Use the SharedObject.getProperty( ) method to read from a server-side shared object. This method requires that you specify the name of the property to read, and it returns the value of that property.

// This code should be within an .asc file. It retrieves the value of myProperty and
// assigns that value to the variable myPropertyVar.
myPropertyVar = my_r_so.getProperty("myProperty");
