|Folders for files||Path to the folder with data files (text files *.al). It is recommended to use the PROMOTIC path syntax - see PROMOTIC path to files and folders. For example #data:Alarm/.
Caution! For each alarm group (PmaAlarmGroup object) different folder should be used. If the backup files of multiple groups are stored in a single shared folder, then at least the prefixes of such files must differ. It means that the individual groups must differ by the defined folder or file prefix (or both).
|File name prefix||The prefix - first part of the filename, for example alarm_. The whole file name consists of this prefix followed by time string, displaying the time of backup creation, and extension. For examplealarm_2007-01-15_18-45-43.al.
Macro expression can be used for input (it is evaluated after starting the application).
Note! In the past, there was a complete path to the backup configuraton file (*.alc) here. In this case, the name prefix is taken from the file name in the complete path.
|Backup creation is defined by records count||If checked, then the backup (creating new file) is performed on achievement of specified record number.|
|Backup creation is defined by time-span||If checked, then the backup (creating new file) is performed periodically with the defined period (Every year, month, week, day, hour, minute, second).|
|Backup count is limited||Maximum number of backup files. If this number of files is achieved, then the oldest backup file is replaced by the newest one.|
|Text data saved as||Specifies the text data coding for saving into the file. It concerns primarily diacritic characters (i.e. national dependent chars) saving method.
ANSI - dependent on Windows OS code page - The texts are saved using the national code page based on Windows OS setting. This method does not allow saving multilingual texts coded by different language code pages simultaneously (e.g. German and Czech).
UTF8 (Unicode) - independent on Windows OS code page - The text are saved using the universal UTF8 Unicode coding. This method is independent on Windows OS codepage setting, and also on the application main language setting (see the "Main language of runtime" configurator).
This method allows saving multilingual texts coded by differnt code pages simultaneously (e.g. German and Russian).
