Hi all,

in Adobe Launch I have defined a data element that should be set with a javascript variable on source page of the website.

When I call on browser console _satellite.getVar('MY VAR') it returns null, even if the javascript variable is defined and populated.

After several tests it seems that I can retrieve my data element value only defining it as a custom code type with a return statement like this:

 

if(MY JAVASCRIPT VARIABLE)

 return MY JAVASCRIPT VARIABLE;

else

return ""

May someone help me understand why?

 

Thank you

Just to confirm: inside Adobe Launch, you have setup a Data Element from Core > JavaScript Variable, and you've specified the name of your JavaScript variable in that data element's configuration, right?
