UIview add-ons are controlled by .XTR files that determine whether they
start automatically with UIview, or terminate automatically when UIview
exits. (Some add-ons can continue to receive data externally, via TCPIP
or AGW, with UIview shut down). Each add-on has it's own XTR file,
created when the add-on is installed (or run the first time). XTRs live
in the main UIview program directory and create the list of items-to-run
that show on the "FILE" pulldown within UIview.
In turn, the XTR files can be reviewed and edited via the add-on "XTR
Control Panel" available at M0CYP's UI-View add-ons page at:
Once installed, the XTR Control Panel itself has an XTR that will cause
"XTR Control Panel" to show as an item to run under the UI-View "FILE"
pulldown. When called up, it produces a list of all the other add-ons
present. For each one, it allows you to check boxes for "Start with
UIview" and "Close with UI-View". The Control Panel can, at will,
define some addons to start automatically with UIview, and others to
only run manually on-demand.
