1.6. Running ModMultiSim with file options

Once you have saved some configuration files, you may want to use the option to pass the pathname of the directory containing the files to the program when it is run, for example:

java -jar modmultisim3.04 .jar \homedir\config\

Modify your command wherever it is called from or entered.

Passing in the directory path enables the directory to be set up as the 'default directory'. The directory is used as the default for files to be selected from, or saved to, when using the File menu options to open or save a file, or to import or export a csv file.

During the operation of the program, the default directory can be changed if a different directory is selected when using import/export or open/save menu options. However, changes to the default directory of the import/export menu options are independent of changes to the default directory of open/save menu options, and vice versa.

A variant on the above command is to use the option to pass in the pathname of a settings file to be automatically loaded, for example:

java -jar modmultisim3.04 .jar \homedir\config\chromatograph.xml

The pathname of the directory containing the settings file will also be used as the 'default directory'.

If there is an error in the pathname, an error message will be displayed in the status bar of the main window.
