Introducing the ABL GUI Designer : Tasks : Working with Progress Dynamics : Registering objects in Repository
Registering objects in Repository
The Register in Repository dialog allows you to register GUI Designer created static objects to the Repository.
Note: The Register in Repository menu is enabled only for static objects which are not already stored in Repository, and with a Dynamics project. This menu action is not enabled for dynamic objects.
To register a static object to the Repository:
1. Open a static object from your Dynamics project:
*In the Project Explorer view, right-click on a static object.
*Select Open With > ABL UI Designer from the right-click context menu.
The selected static object opens in the design window.
2. From the File menu, select Register in Repository. The Register in Repository dialog appears.
3. The File field displays the name of the selected static object. This is a read-only field.
4. From the Product module drop-down, select a product module for the object you are registering.
Note: Product module is a group that defines any useful type of organization for your Progress Dynamics application. You set up Products and Product Modules using the Application > Product Control > Dynamics Administration menu option in the window.
5. From the Object type drop-down, select an object type.
6. The Relative path field displays the relative path of the directory in which the selected static object was saved.
7. Select the Deploy to Web check box to deploy the object to web (for Web and client/server deployment types).
8. Select the Deploy to Client check box to deploy the object to the client machines (for WebClient and client/server deployment types).
9. Select the Deploy to server check box to deploy the object to remote servers (for client/server, AppServer, and Web deployment types).
10. Select the Design object check box to deploy the object for design (development) purposes only.
11. Click OK.
Note: The static object is registered in the Repository.
You can open the registered objects using the Open Object dialog. See Opening objects from the Repository.
