Scripts Preferences let you specify defaults when creating new Scripts, and when executing them.
Use the At Start-up option to determine what Q++Studio should do when launched.
•Do not open a Script: Q++Studio opens without any Script Open.
•Load a blank Script: Q++Studio creates a blank script on opening.
•Display the "Open Script" dialog: presents the Scripts in the most recent Scripts directory.
•Open MRU Script: automatically opens the last Script that you opened.
Blank pages in new Scripts
Many diaries are book-bound with the first and last pages kept blank and glued to the cardboard cover. This option allows you to set the presence of these pages as default when creating new Scripts.
➢This setting only applies to new scripts.
Modified Template is an Error: Use this option to tell Q++Studio what type of design-time message it should generate, if one of the GridTemplates used in the current script has been modified since it was last scanned. We recommend that you check this option, so that an error is generated. If this option is left un-checked, only a warning will be issued, allowing you to generate a diary using a GridTemplate which is not up to date.
Include Languages Names in New Script Names: This option lets you specify what reference to languages, if any, should be in the name that Q++Studio automatically proposes to you when you save a script for the first time. There is no particular necessity for the script names to refer to the languages used, since the languages used are displayed separately from the script name in the scripts explorer. This is a matter of personal/corporate preference.
The Auto-Save Scripts option automatically saves the current script without asking you, anytime a script should be saved before proceeding.
The Display Database Selection Dialog option determines if, at program start-up, the current user is presented with a dialog with a choice of selecting which one of the available databases to connect to (for multi-site and/or multi-database systems).
The Always restructure local tables at start-up option is set to false by default and, if true, will increase the time that Q++Studio takes to start-up, with the remote advantage of preventing an obscure error in one of the temporary tables from forcing you to restart Q++Studio.
