It is working, provided you run one of the other scripts first. Otherwise the variable is still empty.

Means we need to set 

set variable [ $$time ; value; get(current time) ]

before window title ????

why its not working by dragging the data from global variables script ????

It means that you need to execute the script step:

Set Variable [ $$date; Value:Get ( CurrentDate ) ]

before you try executing:

Set Window Title [ Current Window; New Title: $$date ]

It doesn't matter if the Set Variable[] step is in the same script or not. The variable being set is global, so it will remain in scope until the end of the current session. The only thing that matters is that the step is performed. Otherwise the variable does not exist, and you are setting the window title to an empty string.

Now got the point - we need to execute global variable step so it stays till the file is open  whether its in that or other script , once executed we can manipulate with our own script steps

Many developers use a script that runs on opening the file to populate some global variables. You'd probably not want to do this with current date or time, but it is convenient for values stored as preferences that need to be accessible from any context.

since 2010 I'm using FM but never used any global variable in my solution, today wanted to test global var to see  how it works read a lot of data practically but I understood just now
