This dialog box allows you to adjust the functionality of the Project Editor.
Enables the display of deleted records in the databases. When enabled, a check box at the bottom of the database form indicates if a record is deleted.
Enables the incremental compilation of the project.
Enables the display of extended database forms. You can also use the F2 key on the keyboard to display extended forms.
Inform record changed
Enables the "Record has been changed" message window to appear when you add (or change) data in a database form and then try to close the form - before you add or replace the record.
Note: If you disable this option, you will lose data if you change a database record and forget to add or replace the record.
Disable user functions search
When you use a combo box to select a function (for a command or expressionA statement (or group of statements) that returns a value. An expression can be a single variable, a mathematical formula, or a function. field), a list of built-in Cicode functions and user-written functions displays. If you disable user functions, only the built-in functions are displayed in the list.
Confirm on project packing
Enables the "Packing databases may take a long time" message window to appear when packing a database.
Auto open error form
Automatically displays the Compile Errors form if an error is detected when the project is compiled.
Compile enquiry message
Enables the "Do you want to compile?" message window to appear when the project has been modified and Run is selected from the File menu. Normally, CitectSCADA compiles the project automatically (if the project has been modified) when Run is selected.
Compile successful message
Enables the "Compilation Successful" message window to appear when the project has been compiled.
Prompt on tag not exist
Enables the "Variable tag not found. Do you wish to create this tag?" message window to appear when a variable tag is specified that does not exist in the database. With the message window enabled, you can create new variable tags as they are necessary.
Prepare for Web deployment
Automatically runs the Web Deployment Preparation tool every time you compile a project. Please be aware that this dramatically increases the amount of time taken for each compile, particularly for large projects.
Log deprecated warnings during compile
If you select this option, the compiler will generate an alert message to identify any deprecated elements it detects in a project, that is any functions, parameters, or Kernel commands that are no longer supported.
By unchecking this option, the alert messages are still included in the displayed alert count, but they are not added to the error log.
Info popup time
The delay (in seconds) from the beginning of a database search until a search information window displays. The search information window displays the number of the traced records and allows you to cancel the search. You can cancel the search by selecting the Cancel button in the information window.
The text editor that is used for editing Cicode function libraries and report format files. You need to enter the name of the executable file in this field. The default editor is the Cicode Editor (ctcicode.exe) supplied with CitectSCADA.
The editor that is used for editing Report Format Files. You need to enter the name of the executable file in this field. The default editor is Write (write.exe). If you are using Rich Text Format (RTF) reports, verify that your editor is RTF capable.
Print page size
The number of lines (1 to 66) printed on each page when printing database records.
Print font point
The font size used when printing database records.
Print font name
The name of the font used when printing database records.
Maximum list box items
The maximum number of records that are displayed in drop-down combo boxes.
Warn about unused tags during full compile
Enables the generation of alert entries for unused tags that are not used directly in a project. The alert entries are included in the Project Editor's Compile Errors form when a full compile is run. By default this option is not selected.
Note: For this option Alert entries are generated only for a full compile, not an incremental compile.
Log "tag not defined" warnings during compile
If you select this option, the compiler will generate a `tag not defined' alert in the error log for any tags detected that are not defined in the variable database.
As CitectSCADAv7.20 now allows you to include undefined tags on your graphic pages, this alert may be redundant and impractical. By unchecking this option, the alerts are still included in the displayed count, but they are not added to the error log.
