Defining your own Tokens

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

You can easily define your own tokens. Open the Tokens Manager, and then select the second tab User Defined Tokens.



To add a new token or rename an existing token, type the token name in the edit box near either the NEW or RENAME button and press the appropriate button. You will be warned if the new token name violates one of the token naming rules. To delete a token, use the DELETE button. You will not be able to delete any tokens that do not start with the caracter ':', since these are reserved for Q++'s mixed source tokens.


Note that you can define a token as a combination of other tokens. For example, you may define a token [:fulldate] which you would define as [dddd] [d] [mmmm] [yyyy]. These recursive tokens are very powerful, particularly if you are using the same GridTemplates for different languages.
