Client Parameters

Client Configuration Parameters

info Information

  • The following parameters can be set in the
    • command line or
    • planta.ini
  • All parameters have to be defined in lowercase.
  • The settings in the command line overwrite settings from planta.ini.

note Details

Type Example Comment
command line planta.exe server = planta4:21345 E.g. useful in Windows short cuts
planta.ini File planta.ini is located in the directory of the planta.exe
  • Binary file (planta.exe) can be started directly.
  • Or default Parameters can be set for several server instances that uses the same client.
  • warning Additional characters like spaces or quotes are not stripped and should thus be avoided

Using the "reuse_client_instance" Parameter

  • The reuse_client_instance parameter prevents multiple clients being opened for the same server connection.
  • It only works if the server/port combination is written into the command line parameter or planta.ini.
  • The parameter needs to be True when you open the client and needs to remain True for every subsequent client.
  • If you try opening the 2nd client, the first one will be focused and the reuse_client_instance() method under /Lib/Main/customer/session/session.py or /Lib/Earth/customer/session/session.py will be executed.
  • When the function is called, it has 2 parameters: individual_parameter which contains the value of the individual_parameters client parameter and window_handle which is the handle to the client window.
  • This method can be overwritten by changing the file. If you update to a newer client version, you need to modify the updated file again.

application Example

  • An external application contains all the projects in PLANTA Project.
  • A user wants to switch quickly from this application to a specific project in PLANTA Project.
  • The external application can be modified to have a hyperlink to call the PLANTA application with a specific individual_parameters value, containing an identifier of the project that is known to PLANTA Project.
  • The session.py can be modified to use this value to look up the project in PLANTA and open the project workflow.
