INI Files

The INI Files tool determines whether the Appeon deployed applications would download XML files that emulate INI files to the clients for profile functions, or directly use the XML files stored in PowerServer database, and it also provides the function to allow you to view and modify the INI file contents of the application.

Decimal Precision

The Decimal Precision Settings specifies the decimal precision for the Web or mobile application, you can select a proper one according to your actual needs.

  • 15-digit Decimal supports numbers with up to 15 digits and offers high performance. It is available for all PowerBuilder developed applications.

  • 28-digit Decimal supports numbers with up to 28 digits but offers lower performance than 15-digit Decimal. 28-digit Decimal is only available for applications developed with PowerBuilder 10.5 or above. It is not recommended to apply 28-digit decimal unless high precision number is necessary.
