INI File Setting - Forms

The Forms setting defines an alternate Forms file (FORMS.DAT).

Has the same effect as the /F startup switch.

The Forms file contains Keystroke's Print Buttons settings.

To use multiple Forms files:
- Enter the Print Button settings that most or all workstations share.
- Make copies of the default Forms file (FORMS.DAT). Give each copy a standardized file name. For example: FORMS1.DAT, FORMS2.DAT, FORMS3.DAT, etc.
- Use the Forms= INI file setting to assign a different Forms file to each workstation.
- Change the Print Button settings for each workstation as required.



NOTE: If the Forms Setting is used to define an alternate Forms file and a file extension is not included, the .DAT Data File Extension is added to it (e.g. "FORMS=FormsR1" sets the Forms data file to "FormsR1.dat"). It is recommended to always include the data file extension (normally ".DAT") because it is easier to see exactly what is being requested. If no file extension is desired, add just a period to the filename (e.g. "Forms=FormsR1.").
