The syntax editor can be disable/enable by modifying the glide.ui.javascript_editor property in the sys_properties.list. In addition, administrators can configure the syntax editor to show error and warning indicators next to a line of code that contains an error by modifying the glide.ui.syntax_editor.show_warnings_errors property. For information on the sys_properties.list, refer to Available system properties.
