If you add your own application specific entries, you should specify a different owner (“Application” for example). You should not change or delete any entries with a “System” owner. This field is not used by pUserMessage. Its purpose is to distinguish standard entries from application specific entries.


Defines the language of the message title. This field is used to flag the natural language in which the message title text is written. Message titles supplied with DC have ApplMessTitleLang set to “E” to indicate English. You can insert additional message titles using a different language flag. This flag is inspected by pUserMessage to ensure that messages and titles in the appropriate language are used.


ApplMessTitles is an EntitySet defined in $DeployServices. Every Zim database has its own copy of ApplMessTitles. The Framework uses ApplMessTitles to control the window caption when displaying messages.

Note: The actual filename for the copy of ApplMessTitles is Zim0128 and is located in a sub-directory of your database directory called DPSRT.
