Application - page of object PmaRoot

Description:
Basic settings of the application.
Configuration items:
Main language of runtimeSpecifies the default national language that is used in the runtime mode of the PROMOTIC system application (if the component requesting localized text does not explicitly specify the different language).

Language is determined with a text identifier, e.g. "en", "de", "ru" etc. - see Fully supported languages in the PROMOTIC system.

If the "develop" (development) identifier is selected, then the language of the development environment is used. Note: The language for the development environment is entered in the menu " > PROMOTIC settings" in the "Development environment language" configurator.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property Pm.RtLang.

All used languagesThe list of all national languages supported by running application simultaneously.

Language defined in the "Main language of runtime" configurator should also be listed in the list. If missing, then it is added to the list automatically.

The meaning of the list is to inform the PROMOTIC system about languages which should be loaded into the memory after starting the application. It is used for optimalization of loaded languages into the memory possible because not used languages are not loaded into the memory. The list itself consist of abbreviations of languages separated with comma (,).

If the application is designed only for one language, then this configurator should be left empty.

This language list is also used for the PmaWebLang object, offering the Web pages language versions into the Web server.

Application PmFree (without license testing)If checked, then the application will be running PmFree mode without license testing. See: PmFree.
Runtime regime without the license keyThe configurator specifies the PROMOTIC application runtime behavior if there is no license key present (see also PROMOTIC system modes according to the license).
RtNone+DevNone - cannot be launched either to the development environment or to the runtime - The application cannot be launched either to the development environment or to the runtime.
RtFree - free runtime, limited application size (default) - The application runtime will use the regime: RtFree (max. 30 variables and 10 graphic panels) or RtTestFree (max. 100 variables).

See PmRtFree - Free runtime license.

RtDemo - demo runtime, unlimited application size - The application runtime will use the regime: RtDemo.

This mode allows to launch an application of any size for demo purposes. This runtime contains the warning windows and a time limitation up to 1 hour. It is not designed for running a real application.

Runtime helps pathPath to the help file (*.hlp) that is called in the running application after pressing the Help button of the window. The file can be listed by the button. See: How to display help texts in running application.
Panels timer periodPeriod in seconds with which active panels of the application are refreshed. Only those panels that haven't set the "PmaPanel > Setting of the Options default values > Refresh period (refresh)" configurator will be refreshed. The default value is 0.5 sec.

This configurator sets the initial value of the property Pm.Blinker.

The period defined here affects only the local panels of the application. The period of Web panels is defined in the "PmaPanel > Web server > Refresh period of HTML pages [s]" configurator.

Editing the application with password verificationSetting the authorization for editing the application in the development environment. See The authorization of editing the application.

If the authorization is used and if the authorization fails, then the development environment isn't opened.

It is used for preventing opening and vieweing of the application content by unauthorized persons. In order to protect the runtime mode of PROMOTIC application - see the Pm.LicenceInfo method.

Stop application runtime with confirmationIf checked, then on stopping the application runtime the confirmation window is displayed
Paths to system folders
To system data filesPath to system data files, i.e. files generated directly by the running PROMOTIC system. In particular the LOG files (see [Log]).

This configurator is preset to "#app:", i.e. the application folder.

#appres: - to resources (resources: jpg,gif,avi,wav,...)Path to the resources folder (images, sounds, ..) of the application It means to files of the type:
- image (svg, png, jpg, bmp, gif, wmf ...) - used for example by PmgRasterImage object.
- film (avi, mpeg, divx ...) - used for example by PmgVideo object.
- sound (wav) - used for example by Pm.PlaySound method.

The path is used if the files are not found on defined paths or in the application folder. For getting this path, the #appres: can be used.

This configurator is preset to "#app:Resource", i.e. the Resource subfolder in the application folder.

#data: - to data filesPath to the data files folder of the application. It is suitable to store any data files on this path. For getting this path, the #data: can be used. On some places this path is preset:
- for alarms for files with the extension *.al/*.dbf to the subfolder Alarm (#data:Alarm/). See "Folder for files" configurator.
- for events for files with the extension *.ev/*.dbf to the subfolder Event (#data:Event/). See "Folder for files" configurator.
- for trends for database files to the subfolder Trend (#data:Trend/). See "Backup (table) name prefix" configurator.

This configurator is preset to "#app:Data", i.e. the Data subfolder in the application folder.

#cfg: - to configuration filesPath to the application configuration files folder. It is suitable to store files with configuration information on this path (the information that doesn't change too much - contrary to #data:). For getting this path, the #cfg: can be used. On some places this path is preset (by a macro):
- for alarms for files with the extension *.ag (see "Folder for files" configurator).
- for events for files with the extension *.eg (see "Folder for files" configurator).
- for trends for files with the extension *.tg in the preset event of the buttons "Read"/"Store" of the Preconfiguration "Trend viewer with header" Pmg object.

This configurator is preset to "#app:Cfg", i.e. the Cfg subfolder in the application folder.

#temp: - to temporary filesPath to temporary and auxiliary files of the development environment and runtime.

This configurator is preset to "#app:Temp", i.e. the Temp subfolder in the application folder.
