Filing
Using the Filing Service
15-19
Using Local or Global Folders Only
15
To suppress the display of either local or global folders in the Filing slip and the
folder tab views, you can set the values of optional
localFoldersOnly
and
globalFoldersOnly
slots that you supply in your application's base view. Note
that the use of local or global folders only is intended to be an application design
decision that is made once, rather than a user preference that can change.
When the
localFoldersOnly
slot holds the value
true
, the Filing slip and
folder tab views do not display the names of global folders. When the
globalFoldersOnly
slot holds the value
true
, the Filing slip and folder tab
views do not display the names of local folders.
W A R N I N G
The
localFoldersOnly
and
globalFoldersOnly
must not
both hold non-
nil
values at the same time.
Adding and Removing Filing Categories Programmatically
15
You can use the
AddFolder
and
RemoveFolder
global functions to modify the
set of folders (filing categories) available to your application. Note that the
RemoveFolder
function does not remove any folder that is also used by other
applications. For more information, see the descriptions of these methods in the
Newton Programmer's Reference
.
Interface to User-Visible Folder Names
15
Symbols that represent folders are not tied to the strings that represent those folders
to the user. As a result, you can use the same folder symbol everywhere for a
particular concept, such as a business, while varying the user-visible string
representing that folder; for example the user-visible string could be localized for
various languages.
You can use the
GetFolderStr
function to retrieve the user-visible string
associated with a folder symbol.
