Scripts can be written for Altium Designer in several script languages. Note that the primary language and the most referred to in the Scripting documentation is DelphiScript — this is closely related to Embarcadero Delphi™.

This Scripting Languages Support section includes detailed information on the following available scripting languages:

The default scripting language is set to DelphiScript. For legacy scripting languages, such as VBScript and JavaScript (Jscript), you must enable Legacy.Scripts.SupportOldLanguages in the Advanced Settings dialog. Note that only existing JavaScripts can be opened, as it is no longer supported for creation.
