Select Application Language

One of the first things you do after starting a new VPME application is visit the VPME Options menu to set up Application Options. So it is with VPME Multilingual. One of the first things you will want to do is go to the Environment option to select the Application Language.

Select the Application Language on the Environment form.

The Application Language is an applicationís default language. It is the language in which the application will run if another language has not been specified for the user running the application (see User Language Selection and User Language Selection). By default, the Master Language (English) is the Application Language. If you want the Application Language to be a language other than the Master Language, select the Application Language you want on the VPME Environment form.

Tip: While you, the developer, can select the Application Language through VPMís Environment option on the Options menu, at run time your applicationís system administrator can select a different Application Language through the Environment option on the Admin menu in the application.

Technical Info

The ID of the Application Language is stored in the language ID field (CLANGID, C, 3) of an applicationís SVPMApplicationDefinition.apd table. Thatís how a VPME application knows the Application Language.
