DB RTD Application Settings

DB RTD Application Settings

DB RTD loads application settings from the db.rtd.dll.config file located in the local application folder like

C:\Users\<Your user name>\AppData\Gartle\DB.RTD\db.rtd.dll.config

You can open the file using Start Menu, All Programs, DB RTD, Configuration File.

To edit connections in a visual mode, use Start Menu, All Programs, DB RTD, gConnectionManager.

The configuration file contains connection strings and configuration parameters.

Configuration file example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <add key="TimeZone" value=""/>
        <add name="sqlexpress"
            connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=master;Integrated Security=True"
            providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

The sqlexpress connection string exists by default.

Configuration parameters:

The string value defines the time zone used in the rtd_LastUpdate, rtd_LastUpdateDate, and rtd_LastUpdateTime fields.
The default value is the current Windows time zone.
See available time zones at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-vista/cc749073(v=ws.10).
