[SOLVED] Parameter Grouping Options
Where is the default kept for the Parameter Grouping Options (HTML Painter WF 76x)?

I, inadvertently, checked the “… use the default selection” checkbox and now am stuck with the “New form element” as my default - until someone tells how to undo that. I really want the “Do not create a form” as my default.

Thanks, Doug

Go to Tools/Settings. In the lower left-hand corner, there is a new parameters dialog check box. See if changing that helps.

I can't tell you for sure as I don't do the form thing either.

That indeed should do the trick.
Mind you, this option is only available from within the html-painter...

Thanks Ginny for the insight...
Thanks GamP for the addition insight...

That worked...
Now, is there a way to set "Do not create a form" as the default?

A little bit of researched showed that these two possibilities are hard coded in fshtmlpage.dll which resides in devstudio's bin directory.
The default selection is not in any ini file, nor can it be found in the registry. So I think you're out of luck here.
Maybe raising a case with IB Tech Support will help??

Thanks GamP,
That's what I was afraid of... I'll look into the IB Tech Support thing and consider this "Resolved" - for the time being...
