Set_View ini and disk BufferS

January 24, 2006 on 7:54 pm | In Notetab Clips, Special Clips - for someone, test clips | No Comments

Reposted 2/2/06
Here are revised, REVISED, clips, one to use NoteTabs users inifile feature to store tidbits of information, the other, to use disk files as a temporary storage medium.

For setting new buffers the clip uses the first word in the selection, if it is descriptive enough you can accept that name or type over with your own name choice.

Both approaches appear to work well, the disk file method doesn’t have the text selection size limitations of the ini file storage method.

Both approaches store a variable in memory at buffer creation. If you perform an action that wipes the variable, change or close the clipbook, close NoteTab, shut down the computer, you can regenerate the memory variable.

Go into the View_Set mode, select the buffers for which you want to regenerate memory variables, as you step thru each buffer view the variable is reset.

BOTH CLIPS ARE ON THIS PAGE.
