Specifying Generation Options

Before you generate, you need to specify generation options for each type of task interface object you will be generating for your tasks. Although options you select in the Options, Generating page are global, options you select in the interface object properties dialog boxes are not. They are saved separately for each project. This means that you can specify different options for each project.

The options you select provide default values for the Generate dialog box. You can override these selections when you generate.

To specify generation options
  1. From the Tools menu, choose Options.

  2. In the Options dialog box, choose the Generating tab.

  3. On the Generating page, select the task interface objects you want to be able to generate, and then choose Properties for each one to set additional options.
    Note A task file is generated regardless of your selections in the Generating page. Task files can be used directly in an application and are also used by the Runtime Service when you run applications that use other types of task interface objects.
