Data persistance

2 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I looked around the forums but without much success I'm afraid.

I need a way to keep some user defined data for use even after the app is closed. I was thinking maybe write the data to a file and call it and parse for the data or maybe using environment variables.

Any ideas/examples (especially for the environment vars) greatly appriciated.

Thanks for any help

And as, I'm sure you can tell, I'm working without a net here.

2 ways to do it.

1) Use an INI file (see INIRead() and INIWrite())

2) Use the Registry (See RegRead() and RegWrite())
