Allows you to view and manipulate files used for output file placement and to create and edit a hierarchy of UIL output files.
Note: With the UIL File Manager, you can use the UIL files in conjunction with Builder Xcessory File Placement to save different parts of your interface in different UIL files. This is especially useful when you are localizing an internationalized application.
Read-Only files are preceded by a lock icon. Builder Xcessory does not allow you to Save to a Read/Only file. You can change the File Name field (as described below) to write the file to a different path or file name that is not Read/Only.
This applies the currently selected (highlighted) path to the selected file. This feature provides an effective method to easily move files to different directories. For example, a Read/Only file can be made Read/Write by moving it to another directory.
To change the directory of the currently selected file to a new directory, edit the file name or the Directory text field and press return. If you change the value in the Directory text field, all files in the old directory will move to the new directory.
Displays a file selection box. Select the name of an existing file in this dialog and press return. The file will be referenced in an include statement in the UIL file currently selected in the Include File Hierarchy.
Note: Existing files must not have UIL module or end module statements.
Removes the currently selected file as well as all of its descendants in the Include File Hierarchy. You are permitted to delete a file that is used in your interface. The messages in the Browser Message window will indicate any references to the file or its descendents.
Note: Full Name is insensitive when the Directory Hierarchy is selected.
The Include File Hierarchy illustrates which output files are included in which other files. For example, if file bar.uil is referenced in an include statement in the header of file foo.uil, then bar.uil is displayed to the right of foo.uil, connected by a line.
The Directory Hierarchy is a tree diagram of the directories to which the output UIL files are written. If you edit the path of a file, its relative position on the Directory Hierarchy changes. More than one "root" (left-most path) can be on this hierarchy.
The Path consists of the directories in which the output files will be searched for, with the top-most member searched first. Shuffle the position of the selected directory path in the Path by using the up and down arrows, and delete paths that are not referenced with the Delete button.
Note: If the currently selected path is used by a file in the hierarchy, the Delete button is grayed out.
