Validation

From STX Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Since the project file is where all the segment and parameter data is stored, it is important to maintain the validity of this file. The validation process is complicated and based on a set of rules defined in the stxconfig.xml file. Although validation should never generate errors, it can be a useful process, should you be experiencing problems with your project.

You can explicitly validate a project from the Workspace menu File > Project > Validate

Automatic validation

You can control when your project is validated using the project attribute Validation. Supported values are:

Off do not validate
On validate on load and save
Load validate on load
Save validate on save

If you use validation, you are advised to sort your project entries by ID, since this speeds up the validation process.
