13.7. Settings: Application Events


This settings page is where you configure Application Events.

Settings Tab

Application events are events that occur while using DMT. There are 3 types of application events with one settings page for each type:

  • Errors: errors that occur during the application use.
  • Warnings: warnings that occur during the application use.
  • Run Information: Event taking place while a group or job is running (e.g. database connection, run precondition check, etc)

In the application event settings pages, you can see and choose how to log each application event as they occur:

  • Log it in the log file: this option places an entry in the application log file when the event occurs.
  • Display it: this option displays a message when the event occurs.
  • Log it in the windows event log: option places an entry in the windows application log when the event occurs.

Note: you cannot change the values for the "log it in the windows event log" option.

Note: you can choose to enable or disable the log and display options for most of the event, but some are read only (e.g. you cannot log the "Accessing log file" error in the log file).
