To access the PROPATH properties page, right-click an OpenEdge project name in the Project Explorer view and choose Properties from the context menu. Expand the Progress OpenEdge node in the tree view, and then click the PROPATH node.
The PROPATH tab lets you control where the AVM searches for files and procedures.
The following controls are available on the PROPATH tab:
|PROPATH viewer||Displays PROPATH settings in a tree view format. You can expand
nodes to see more detail about a particular setting. It usually
opens with a default list of typical settings, which you can modify
with the controls on the left of the page.
The settings should include all locations that might contain files needed for your application, and should be arranged in an appropriate search order.A PROPATH entry can be either a directory or a procedure library.
By default all PROPATH entries are part of the OpenEdge tooling. To exclude a PROPATH entry from OpenEdge tooling, select the Exclude from OpenEdge tooling node under the PROPATH entry that you want to exclude. The Exclude from OpenEdge tooling node appears as a child node for each PROPATH entry.
