Changing Application Options

VLISP allows you to change the way your application is designed. For example, you can change compilation options, or add or remove AutoLISP files from the application.

To change an application's definition

  1. Choose File Make Application Existing Application Properties. VLISP displays a dialog box for you to specify your application's Make (.prv) file, which is where VLISP stores the application's properties.
  2. Specify the name of your application's Make file, then press Open. VLISP displays the Application Properties dialog box.
  3. Click the tab of the property you want to change.
  4. After changing a property, press Apply to save the change, or press OK to save the change and exit the Application Properties dialog box.

Load/Compile Options

Compile AutoLISP source files using the Standard compile option, or Optimize and Link the files.

Tune Directories

Identify LISP Object directory and Target directory. The Object directory is where VLISP places .fas and temporary files created by the compiler. Target directory is another name for “Application directory,” which is where Make Application stores the VLX file. If a field identifying a directory is blank, VLISP uses the .prv directory.

Application Options

Create a separate-namespace VLX and include ActiveX support. If ActiveX Support is selected along with Separate Namespace, loading the VLX will automatically result in the loading of AutoLISP ActiveX support functions.

Load Files

AutoLISP source files included in the application.

Resource Files

Additional resource files included in the application.
