Options dialog: General tab

The General tab of the Options dialog has the following components:

Prompt to connect on startup    This option controls whether the Connect to MobiLink Server dialog appears when the MobiLink Monitor is started. By default, this option is selected, which means that when the Monitor is started without any command line options, the Connect to MobiLink Server dialog appears. If you do not want the Connect to MobiLink Server dialog to appear when you start the Monitor without command line options, clear the checkbox beside this option.

Max synchronization count    This is the maximum number of synchronizations that are kept in the current session. The default maximum synchronization count is 100000. Once the limit is reached, you can choose to replace the oldest synchronizations with new ones by selecting the Replace Old Synchronizations With New Ones option.

Replace old synchronizations with new ones    This option controls whether new synchronizations replace the oldest or newest synchronizations in the session when the Monitor reaches the maximum synchronization count for the current session. This option is selected by default, meaning that new synchronizations replace the oldest synchronizations in the session.

Maximum sample time    Specify the maximum sample time by entering a value and selecting one of the following measures of times from the dropdown list:

Save automatically when connected to MobiLink server    Select this option to save Monitor sessions automatically to a file when the Monitor is connected to a MobiLink server. The setting for this option takes effect the next time the MobiLink Monitor connects to a synchronization server. It does not change the setting for current connections. Data from the Monitor session is saved as a binary file (.mlm) by default. Selecting this option enables the Output File and Save Every fields. When this option is selected for a connection, the Monitor starts saving session information when it connects to a MobiLink server and stops saving information when it disconnects. The data contained in the output file is overwritten by new data for each time the Monitor connects to a MobiLink server.


To restore the Monitor's default settings, delete the file .mlMonitorSettings. This file is stored in your user profiles directory.
