Using Sybase Central to work with message types


You can create and alter message types in Sybase Central. Message types appear on the Message Types tab in the right pane when the SQL Remote Users folder is selected. This section applies only to SQL Anywhere databases.

You must have DBA authority to create and alter message types.

To add a message type (Sybase Central)
  1. Connect to a database.

  2. In the left pane, open the SQL Remote Users folder for that database.

  3. In the right pane, click the Message Types tab.

  4. From the File menu, choose New > Message Type.

    The Create SQL Remote Message Type wizard appears.

  5. In the Create SQL Remote Message Type wizard, enter a message type name. The name should correspond to a message-type DLL already installed in your SQL Anywhere installation directory. Click Next.

  6. Enter a publisher address and click Finish to save the definition in the database.

If you want to change the publisher's address, you can do so by altering a message type. You cannot change the name of an existing message type; instead, you must delete it and create a new message type with the new name.

To alter a message type (Sybase Central)
  1. In the left pane, open the SQL Remote Users folder for a database.

  2. In the right pane, click the Message Types tab.

  3. In the right pane, right-click the message type you want to alter and choose Properties from the popup menu.

  4. On the property sheet, configure the various options.

If you want to drop a message type from the installation, you can do so.

Creating message types for Windows CE

If you have Windows CE services installed, you have an option to set up SQL Remote for ActiveSync synchronization from Sybase Central. This sets your folder for FILE message link messages to be the ActiveSync folder. When you dock your Windows CE device to your desktop computer, ActiveSync keeps the files in your desktop computer's ActiveSync folder synchronized with those in the Windows CE ActiveSync folder. You can access the utility to set up SQL Remote ActiveSync synchronization by choosing Tools > SQL Anywhere 10 > Edit Windows CE Message Type.
