Introducing OpenEdge Projects : Tasks : Defining new configuration variables

Defining new configuration variables

In addition to the predefined variables available in Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge, you can define new configuration variables at the project and workspace level. Creating configuration variables at the project level ensures that the projects, which contain linked resources using the configuration variables, remain portable across workspace and systems.
To define new configuration variables:
1. Right-click the project in the Project Explorer view and select Properties from the context menu.
2. Expand Progress OpenEdge in the tree view in the left pane of the Properties page.
3. Select the Configuration Variables node.
4. Click Add to open the New Variable dialog.
5. Specify a name for the new variable in the Name field.
6. Specify an associated location for the new variable. You can provide a directory location on the file system by clicking Folder or select an existing variable by clicking Variable.
7. Click OK to save the settings.
To edit an existing configuration variable, select the variable and click Edit on the Configuration Variables properties page.
