DEdit Database Editor

Documentation version 1.0 ,2004-04-18



The Log-dialog is used to check the results of descriptions and help developers debug scripting mistakes.

Every time the F4 button is pressed, the currently displayed dataset is previewed by executing all scripting commands.

At the same time the log-window is updated and a new "performing preview for..." entry is added.

The log window has a cascade-like structure, which can be expanded by clicking on the + signs or the numbers on top of it. Each scripting command gets its own entry, showing parameters and results. Global variables are also shown at the end of the log-window.

The Clear button can be used to reset the log-window. The Reset vars button is used to reset the global variables to their initial value. The Clear files button clears all text files which were created with the $SaveTXT command including the clear paramter. (Usually, those files are automatically deleted at the end of the tavern-generating algorithm. They are, however, not deleted when previewing only.)The Save... button can be used to save the log-window as a textfile.

The checkboxes Error, Warnings and Infos show different messages in the log.
