An EGLAR library is a collection of EGLAR files. When developing a complicated project, there are usually large collection of common resources that needs to be shared among projects in one workspace. The EGLAR library feature shipped with RBD 9.0 is designed for this kind of requirement. It is a symbol that represents a collection of EGLAR files, and it is configurable in the project’s EGL build path. Whenever resources are added to or removed from this variable, all the affected projects’ EGL build path will be updated immediately and rebuilt in the background. This really saves us great time from managing the EGL resources.
Generally there are two steps to enable the EGLAR user library support:
1. Define and edit the EGLAR user library symbols in your preference page
2. Add the EGLAR user library to the related projects’ EGL build path
There are two approaches to open your EGLAR user library preference page.
