type TPJWdwStateIniRootDir = ( rdWindowsDir, rdExeDir, rdAppDataDir, rdProgramDataDir ); property IniRootDir: TPJWdwStateIniRootDir;
This property determines the root directory to be used for any relative ini file name specified by the IniFileName property.
Possible values are:
||Places the ini file in a sub-directory of the per user application directory, i.e.
||Places the ini file in a sub-directory of the common application data directory, i.e.
||Places the ini file in the same directory as the program’s executable file. This option should not be used for programs stored in the Program Files directory - see below.|
||Places the ini file in the Windows system directory, i.e.
In cases where IniFileName is an absolute path IniRootDir is ignored.
The full file path of the ini file can be found by calling the IniFilePath method.
The value of IniRootDir can be overridden at run time if you handle either the OnGetIniDataEx event. This can be useful when the AutoSaveRestore property is
True and you want to specify the root directory at run time. In this case setting IniRootDir at run time will not work because the form will be restored before you have an opportunity to change the property value. However the OnGetIniDataEx event is triggered before the form restores, enabling the root directory to be specified.
You are strongly recommended not to use the
rdWindowsDir value for IniRootDir to store the ini file in the Windows directory. On Windows Vista and later an attempt to write to the Windows directory may be redirected to the virtual store.
rdWindowsDir is provided only for backward compatibility will earlier versions of TPJWdwState. See the to get the IniFileName property documentation for more information.
You should set IniRootDir to
rdExeDir if the executable program if it is stored in the Program Files directory (or similar), since you may not have write access to it or the file may be redirected to a virtual store.
rdExeDir is provided mainly for use with portable programs that save confguration data either with, or in sub-directories or, their installation directory.
