Layout Settings Dialog Box

Getting there

By using layout files, you can access the Reflection .NET API in multiple instances of Reflection simultaneously. From this dialog box, define how to access the API in the instance of Reflection that starts when you open a layout file. (You must also enable the API in the Set Up API and Macro Security dialog box.)

Note: Reflection doesn't prompt you to save changes to a layout.

Set Up API

Automation server name

Specify the name you'll use to access a particular Reflection instance. For example, you can specify this server name in VBA macros that use automation to get a running Reflection instance.

 

IPC channel name

Specify a channel name. This setting overrides the IPC channel name specified in the Set Up API and Macro Security dialog box for the saved layout. In your custom application, use this name to access the API in the Reflection instance that starts when you open the layout file. (Use IPC must be selected in the Set Up API and Macro Security dialog box.)
