Hi:

You can set macros at these levels:

1.BOY Runtime Preference Setting (-pluginCustomization ...)
2.User Preference settings (Menu Edit, Preferences, CSS Applications,
Display, BOY, OPI Runtime)
3.Macro parameter of Action that opens the *.opi file
4.Display *.opi file property "Macros"
5.Grouping/Linking/Tabbed Container that wraps the widgets


Setting a macro within an Action overrides settings from
the user preferences.
Setting them within the Grouping container overrides
those from the Action and so on.


The first option is basically the command line:

You can define any setting for CSS in a plugin customization file
that has the format

# Comment
plugin.name/setting_name=value

For example:

# BOY Macros, format
# macro1,value1|macro2,"value 2"|macro3,"another value"
org.csstudio.opibuilder/macros=MyMacro1,"value 1"|MyOtherMacro,"Another
Value"


# EPICS Settings
org.csstudio.platform.libs.epics/addr_list=127.0.0.1 123.45.67.89



The format of the settings available for BOY
are in the file org.csstudio.opibuilder/preferences.ini.
The format of the settings available for EPICS Channel Access
are in the file org.csstudio.platform.libs.epics/preferences.ini.
The format of the settings for plugin ABC
should be in a file ABC//preferences.ini.




You put all those defaults that you want into a file
my_plugin_customization.ini
and then start CSS with the command-line option

   css -pluginCustomization /path/to/my_plugin_customization.ini

See also chapter "Hierarchical Preferences"
in http://cs-studio.sourceforge.net/docbook/css_book.pdf

Thanks,
-Kay
