Out of the box, VADAAR applications use built-in defaults which can be overridden using a settings file. VADAAR installs example settings files that contain a sample configuration for each respective application. These files are not read by VADAAR applications.
Example settings files and real settings files exist in the same directory. By default, these files exist in sub-directories under C:\ProgramData\VADAAR. Since the real settings files are not installed, they need to be created.
Example files are in the same location, but they are named example-settings instead of settings.
Creating a Settings File
To create a settings file:
- Navigate to the directory containing the example settings file in Windows File Explorer.
- Create a copy of the example settings file in the same directory.
- Rename the copy from example-settings to settings (using the original file extension).
The settings file may now be edited to configure the VADAAR application.
Editing a Settings File
If you created a settings file using the above method, then editing the file only involves two steps: uncommenting the line with a setting and changing the value of the setting.
Uncommenting a Line
To uncomment a line, remove the comment specifier at the beginning of the line.
A comment begins at a specifier and continues to the end of the line. Comments are ignored by applications that read these files.
- JSON comment specifier: //
- YAML comment specifier: #
All settings in the example settings files are commented so that they are ignored by default.
