Member attributes: ApplicationName

This attribute determines an optional name of the application when generating code for a particular profile member.




The value of the attribute ApplicationName has no direct effect on the function of the GUI application. It allows you however to specify a unique identifier for the application which depending on the selected Platform Package can be evaluated during the following build process (e.g. within your make file).
