use environment variable in [FILES] section of Assignment file
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (knutia)
Hi In the help page of [FILES] in Uniface 9.4.01 help doc the argument talks abote : $Path—name of a network path, a user-defined path that redirects to a network path, or an environment variable that redirects to a physical path. The path can be to a ZIP archive. Whit this in mind I set out to set my location of frms by using an environment variable on my windows pc. i set the environment variable "myfrm=c:\myprog\frm" and added "*.frm = myfrm\*.frm" to my Assignment file. When i try to create frm it reports "Error on creation form/application file myfrm\'name of a file'" in the log. Changing it to "*.frm = $myfrm:\*.frm" or "*.frm = myfrm:\*.frm" makes no difference to the error message. Setting "*.frm = $myfrm:*.frm" or "*.frm = myfrm:*.frm" only makes a $myfrm or a myfrm file in the startup Directory. What is the syntax to use? Is it even possible?
