# Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings. # * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top # of the file. # * Each conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are # multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of # multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the # file wins. # * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific # stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.
* Auto-generated persistence stanza label that corresponds to UI views * The <view_name> is the URI name (not label) of the view to persist * if <view_name> = "*", then this viewstate is considered to be 'global' * The <viewstate_id> is the unique identifier assigned to this set of parameters * <viewstate_id> = '_current' is a reserved name for normal view 'sticky state' * <viewstate_id> = '_empty' is a reserved name for no persistence, i.e., all defaults <module_id>.<setting_name> = <string> * The <module_id> is the runtime id of the UI module requesting persistence * The <setting_name> is the setting designated by <module_id> to persist
