Title: Ask Reuben 33 - Disabling Stored Settings
Post by: Reuben B. on June 11, 2020, 04:28:52 am
Stored Settings is where the Front-end client remembers certain properties about a Window or Table so that when the Window or Table is reused, the certain property values are retained.  For Windows this include the position, size, and state of the window.  For Tables this can include the column width, the order of the columns, and the sort column.

For a Window, this means that the user can position multiple windows on their screen so they can see the information they require, and then the next time they run the program, the windows appear in the same position and with the same sizes.

For a Table, this may mean the user adjusts the widths of each column so that they are wide enough to display the typical data.

Most of the time, the Stored Setting behaviour is desired but there are times where it is not, and I will cover some of the ways you can disable the stored settings.
