Creating SCOadmin wizards

Wizard specification file

The wizard specification file contains:

The framework first reads in the message catalog and strings necessary to construct the wizard. Any errors in the file will cause the framework to terminate (after displaying an error). Next, the values set for three arrays are copied into global arrays: This allows access to the user specification without repeated sourcing of the file.

``Wizard specification file format'' depicts the format of the wizard specification file (optional values are marked by an asterisk).
