General attributes in the document

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure which is the best way to do this so I will ask.


I have a relatively complex dialog that requires entering a number of settings.

The dialog and its settings are not attached to a specific object but rather allow to create a number of objects.

Most of the time parameters are the same but the user has to enter them again every time the dialog opens.


Is there a way to attach to the document a set of attributes that ban be used so save and reload the settings for the dialog controls?

Hello gorrunyo,


you can use SetSavedSetting to store the values in a xml that lies in  the userfolder.

If the values need to  be stored in the doc you could use a record definition where you set the default values.
