Builder Xcessory Resources

actionCounts

Specifies the number of Button/Key actions to count between automatic saves of the interface. Setting this value to 0 disables the autosave feature. (Autosave Interval text field located on the General tab of the Browser User Preferences menu.)

alphabeticOrder

If False, the resources are displayed in the widget internal order. (Alphabetical Order toggle on the Options menu of the Resource Editor.)

alwaysGeneratePixmaps

Specifies whether pixmaps will always be output, even if none are referenced in the generated application. If True, all pixmaps are output always, whether referenced or not. If False, all pixmaps are generated only if at least one of them is referenced in the generated application. (Always Generate Pixmaps on the Save File tab of the Browser User Preferences menu.)

autoCheckOut

Specifies Builder Xcessory's response when you attempt to Open or Read a UIL file which has read-only file permissions, If True, you are prompted to check the file out from the version control system before reading it into Builder Xcessory. If False, Builder Xcessory reads the file and marks it as read-only.

autoDismissStartup

defaultPlacement

Specifies the list of resource data types that default to App placement. A comma-separated list of resource data type names (all lowercase) is supplied to the data.

delayShellRealize

If False, all shells of an interface are displayed when it is loaded; the hierarchy of every shell is displayed in the Browser. If True, the shells and their hierarchies are not displayed. Instead, the shell names are listed on the Browser, and you must click on each shell name to display it. This is most useful when you are working with a complex interface and need to conserve screen real estate. When true, the interface will also load faster.

demo

When the Builder Xcessory starts, it searches for the license data file. If it cannot find the license data file, it will not allow the user to save any work. This option allows Builder Xcessory to forego the search and run in demo mode. In demo mode, UIL code generation, autosave, and the Save/Save As features are disabled.

directoryPath

Specifies the directory where files will be written. This is initially the directory from where Builder Xcessory is started, but will change as UIL files are opened. It can also be changed explicitly.

editor

Specifies which editor to use: Vi, Emacs, or User Environment.

emacsCommand

The command to use when the editor is Emacs.

file

Specifies the file to load immediately after initialization. This is most useful when used with its command line variant.

firstNodeStateClosed

Specifies whether the Browser tree will start any hierarchy with the node closed. This is a useful setting when reading large hierarchies as it helps improve the Builder Xcessory startup time.

force

This resource is used only in conjunction with the load resource. Specifies that Builder Xcessory should generate Palette entries for any and all user defined widgets, even if they already appear in a WML file.

generateUnmodifiedDefaults

When Builder Xcessory is asked to place a resource value in the application defaults file, on rare occasions, it is unable to supply a valid string for the output value. If this resource is set to False, Builder Xcessory will skip over the resource specification. If it is set to True, Builder Xcessory will print a resource specification to the app-defaults file without a value string following the colon.

If False, the interface will not be saved on catastrophic error.

integratePurify

Specifies whether memory test targets should be added to the various makefiles and imakefiles.

integrateXrunner

Specifies whether Xrunner targets should be added to the Makefile.

lieToWindowManager

loadDEC

Specifies whether or not to load the DEC widgets (if they are available) onto the Palette during Builder Xcessory startup.

Note: The EnhancementPak widget set is a separate product. Please consult your ICS sales representative for further information.


localDirectory

Specifies the directory that Builder Xcessory uses for individual additions to the Palette, such as user collections. This directory must be writable.

matchPaletteColors

If True, Palette and toolbar pixmaps use the symbolic background and foreground colors. If False, the Palette and toolbar pixmaps are displayed with individual background colors.

paletteState

Specifies the geometry, iconification, view mode and catalog file of each Palette to display when Builder Xcessory is next executed. The string has the following format:

Specifies the color to use in the Palette and toolbar pixmaps for the symbolic foreground color.

pixmapMode

Specifies which set of pixmaps, if any, are used on the Palette. May be either BEST_FIT, FORCE_BW, or FORCE_COLOR. When pixmapMode is set to BEST_FIT, Builder Xcessory uses either the black and white pixmaps or the color pixmaps depending on the display. When pixmapMode is set to FORCE_BW, Builder Xcessory uses the black and white pixmaps. When pixmapMode is set to FORCE_COLOR, Builder Xcessory uses the color pixmaps.

symbolicUIL

Specifies whether Builder Xcessory should use symbolic names when generating UIL code. If True, and motifVersion is 1.0, the output UIL file will include the file XmAppl.uil. If False, this file will not be included and Builder Xcessory will generate the actual constant values instead of the symbolic names.

system

systemDirectory

Specifies the directory that Builder Xcessory searches for its system initialization files.

None

do not communicate with an IDE.

uilIncludePath

Specifies the directory or directories that Builder Xcessory searches for files included by the uil include directive. Additional include directories may be specified by separating with a comma.

uilPixmapBehavior

This resource affects the generation of icon values in UIL code. If True, the icon's color table will be generated in a separate value statement immediately preceding the icon value to which it applies. If False, the icon's color table will be generated as a part of the icon value. This is a legal UIL value specification, but most UIL compilers flag this syntax as an error or do not compile it correctly.

uniqueSubclassNames

If True, prepends the subclass name and an underscore (_) to all subclass widget names in order to make them unique from their corresponding superclass widgets. If False, allows subclass widgets to have the same names as their corresponding superclass widgets--you must then rename the subclass widgets yourself.

useOpenGL


Note: Valid on SGI Platforms only.


If True, load the OpenGL Drawing Area widget on the Palette. If False (default), load the IRIS GL Drawing Area widget on the Palette.

userDefinedUIL

Useful for users generating UIL code and unable to extend the UIL compiler to understand new widgets. Set to True only when generating the UIL file that will be compiled because the resulting UIL file becomes much larger and more confusing.

If True, writes UIL files with all non-motif widgets fully specified as user-defined UIL objects.

If False (default), writes UIL files treating all widgets as if defined to the UIL compiler.

userEditorCommand

Specifies the command to use for a user-defined editor.

Specifies the command to use for a user-specified memory test tool.

viCommand

Specifies the format of the command to use for the vi editor.

uilWrapLines

Specifies whether or not long strings should be broken into shorter lines during UIL code generation. Some compilers cannot handle lines longer than 132 or 256 characters, a limit often exceeded by font lists or multi-font label strings. This option lets the user break these into multiple lines separated with a backslash and return character sequence.

wmPositionIsFrame

Specifies whether the window manager interprets X, Y locations relative to the window decorations. By default, most window managers take a window's X and Y location as relative to the decorations. Change this value if you notice that the main Builder Xcessory windows are not restoring their positions correctly from session to session.

xrunnerCommand

Specifies the libraries used to make an Xrunner object.

xtI nstanceNameCompliant

If False, allows instance names of widgets to begin with an upper case letter. If True, forces a lower case letter. Capitalized widget names may cause problems with the proper inheritance of application defaults resource values and conflicts with Xt specifications.
