CimEdit/CimView Screen Search Sequence

When an action, such as Open Screen, opens a screen that is identified with a CimEdit extension (e.g., .cim), in an absolute path, CimEdit/CimView opens that screen.

More frequently, commands for CimEdit/CimView to find another screen include a relative path and may or may not provide a CimEdit extension to the file name. CimEdit/CimView follows a specific search sequence to find the file.

Factors affecting when CimEdit/CimView will look for the screen in the sequence include:

Whether the screen from which the action is triggered is editable or protected.

The directory in which the current screen resides (current directory).

The file name extension that was entered for the screen to be opened.
