Servers Tab, Project Information Dialog Box
Displays classes located on servers, their class library, instancing, description, type, and Help information.
Changes you make in the Servers tab requires you to rebuild the .dll or .exe for the new settings to take effect.
- Server Classes
Displays a list of all the available classes, both .vcx and in code, which are marked as OLEPublic. Each class in the list has a corresponding .pjx file.
- Class Library
Displays the directory path of the class library in which the selected class is stored.
- Class Name
Displays the name of the class.
Displays one of following options:
Single Use Specifies that you can create an instance of the class both inside Visual FoxPro and outside of Visual FoxPro using Automation. Each request for an instance of the class by an Automation client outside of the project causes a separate copy of the Automation server to start. Each instance has a single thread of execution. Although separate instances require more memory, choosing Single Use allows the operating system to apply preemptive multitasking.
Instancing defaults to Single Use when you create a new project containing OLEPUBLIC classes. This setting is appropriate for building EXE servers.
Not Creatable Specifies that you can create instances of the class only inside Visual FoxPro.
Multi Use Specifies that you can create an instance of the class both inside Visual FoxPro and outside of Visual FoxPro using Automation. Each request for an instance of the class by an Automation client outside of the project causes an already running copy of the Automation server to be provided as the source for the new instance. Once the server has been created, other applications can use the same instance.
Instancing defaults to Multi Use when you create a .dll COM Server.
Displays a small description of the class.
By default Visual FoxPro registers the full Project.Server notation as the description. This ensures consistent registry keys. You can specify a different Description here.
- Help file
Displays the Help file associated with the server. Select the dialog button to display the Open dialog box if no file is listed.
- Help context ID
Displays the context ID of the Help file associated with the application, if a Help file is distributed with the application.
- Project name
Displays the name of the project associated with the server classes.
- Typelib description
Displays a description of the class library the selected class is based on.
