Common Desktop Environment: Help System Author's and Programmer's Guide

DtNexecutionPolicy Resource

The DtNexecutionPolicy resource enables a system administrator or user to select an appropriate level of security for a given application.

The resource values that can be set are:


Query all execution links.


Query only link commands that do not have execution aliases defined.


Do not execute any execution links.


Execute all execution links.

The default value is help_execute_query_unaliased. Any execution links defined as execution aliases will be automatically executed, whereas the Help System will display a confirmation dialog box for any other execution links.

It is not recommended for the application developer to set the DtNexecutionPolicy because this prevents a system administrator or user from altering the value.
