ide-configuration

The class of the IDE configuration object, which contains a variety of options for the way that the IDE behaves. Most of the options appear on the Tools | Options dialog, and the complete set may be viewed or modified in the Inspector by using the Tools | Inspect System Data | IDE Configuration Options menu command.

The IDE configuration object may also be accessed programmatically with the expression (cg:configuration ide:*ide-system*) (see configuration and *ide-system*). For example, the following expression could be used to programmatically change the font used in the IDE editor:

(setf (editor-font (configuration *ide-system*))
      (make-font-ex nil "Courier New" 14))

The IDE normally saves all Common Graphics and IDE configuration options in a prefs.cl file, so that future IDE sessions will retain option settings that were made in earlier sessions. (See save-options-on-exit.)

See also cg-configuration, which covers Common Graphics options that also apply to standalone Common Graphics applications.
