Setting the Constrain Mode for Working With Symbolic Strings
Siebel Tools can run in either constrained mode or unconstrained mode.
- When working in constrained mode, you must choose translatable text strings from the list of available string references. You cannot override the string reference by entering a value for a string override field and you cannot create new symbolic string references.
- When working in unconstrained mode, you are not required to choose translatable text strings from the list of string references. You can override the string reference by entering a value in a string override field. You can also create new symbolic string references.
The constrain mode is determined by the following CFG file parameter, found in the
[Siebel] section of the tools.cfg file:
EnableToolsConstrain = FALSE
The EnableToolsConstrain mode is binary and must be set to either TRUE or FALSE. It is set to FALSE by default.
