Set Up QAD ICT Control Table
QAD ICT Control Table (90.24.24) defines where the ICT Developer Menu is installed. If during the initial load of QAD ICT data the menu numbers were changed, enter here the changed menu number in this program.
The language prefix defines the default language that is being used for the customer (in most cases, that will be US).
Task base directory is used to indicate where task subdirectories are created. Task directory is obtained by concatenating the base directory and the task ID. The new or modified custom procedures are kept in the task directory and compiled there as long as the task is open. Once the task is closed, all such files are moved automatically to the central directory (r-codes to global_user_lang_dir + first two letters subdirectory, source code files to the first source subdirectory) and thus become visible to all users.
Central directory is used to indicate the directory where the customer customizations are stored (subscriber, UI triggered, validation, other non ICT-related procedures). This directory is usually the first one on the Propath.
Both the task base directory and central directory must have full write, read, and execute rights for further ICT developers.
Source sub-dir defines a comma-separated list of source subdirectories used to extend the Propath. The first subdirectory is the target subdirectory for customized source files in the central directory.
QAD ICT is reloaded if ‘Reload QAD ICT’ flag is set to Yes and F1(go) was pressed. Optionally, you can log off and log on again to QAD Enterprise Applications. The ICT processing is restarted ONLY for the current user. For .NET UI/Desktop users, restart the Connection Manager.
UPGRADE NOTE When you upgrade your QAD ICT installation, it is necessary to run two procedures that automatically adjust your existing customizations to ICT 4.1 requirements. It is very important to run them after ICT Control Table configuration. Remember to close all WIP ICT tasks; otherwise, ICT closes them automatically. Run the program ictcnv35.p to update the existing Frame & Fields settings. Run the utility ictcnv34.p (it is best to run the compiled version, us/ic/ictcnv34.r) to convert existing ICT tasks to conform to the new version of ICT. This procedure assigns all existing customizations that are not linked with any task to the new created task. (The system prompts you for the task name during the conversion.)
UPGRADE NOTE When you upgrade your QAD ICT installation, it is important to authorize all developed customizations. To do this, run the authorization tool program icauthmt.p. Execute icauthmt.p and reload QADICT.
