Edit file screen template properties

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

When making changes to a file screen template, you have the option of extending those changes to file screens that were created using the original file screen template. You can choose to modify only those file screens that still match the original template, or all file screens that derive from the original template, regardless of any modifications done to them since they were created. This feature simplifies the process of updating the properties of file screens, by providing one central point where all changes can be made.

If you choose to apply the changes to all file screens that derive from the original template, you will overwrite any custom file screen properties that you may have created.

To edit file screen template properties

  1. In File Screen Templates, select the template that you want to modify.

  2. Right-click the file screen template and click Edit template properties, or select Edit template properties from the actions pane, under Selected File Screen Templates. This opens the File Screen Template Properties dialog box.

  3. Perform all necessary changes. Optionally, you can copy the properties of a different template and modify them for this one.

  4. Once you are done editing the template properties, click OK. This will open the Update File Screens Derived from Template dialog box.

  5. Select the type of update you want to apply:

    • If you have file screens that have been modified since they were created using the original template, and you do not want to change them, select Apply template only to derived file screens that match the original template. This option will update only those file screens that have not been edited and maintain the original template properties.

    • If you want to modify all existing file screens that were created using the original template, select Apply template to all derived file screens.

    • If you want to keep the existing file screens unchanged, select Do not apply template to derived file screens.

  6. Click OK.
