Running @Commands In Script

The 'evaluate'- method in script is a good way of running '@commands'. The problem is that you have to specify the notesdocument to run on and this is not always usefull. ex. when working with an unsaved UIDocument. It's also very limited in its use. This comes in handy when you for example by script compute a value. Based on that value a lot of other values should be fetched from different views. Instead of declaring all the views, fetching them, refreshing them, and doing the 'getdocumentbykeys', you can now do your lookups within the 'execute' field by using @dblookup (wich works a lot faster), and ask for the result by using script.
