Command Line Options for the CMOD Client
There are a number of command line options that can be added to the Windows Shortcut of the Content Manager OnDemand Client to customize it, or to provide frequently used defaults.
Configuring Shortcuts to use Command Line Options
After creating a new shortcut to the CMOD Client, add command line options to the end of the line, separated by spaces.
Most Common Options
/S - Server
Use the /S parameter, followed by the name of a server that is already-defined in the client, and the shortcut will use that server when the shortcut is double-clicked.
/U - User
The /U parameter will enter the specified User Name into the 'User ID' field in the Logon window of the CMOD Client.
/P - Password
While it's not recommended to store passwords in this way, it might provide you a quick way to log into a local OnDemand instance with a simple shortcut icon.
/T - Title
Change the title of the window from 'OnDemand' to the text you specify here.
/T "Baxter Bay Bank Statement Archive"
/F - Folder
Name of the folder to open automatically at login time. A great way for Content Manager OnDemand administrators to go right to the System Log Folder. If the specified folder doesn't exist, the behavior is undefined -- a different folder may be opened.
/F System Log
Less Used Options
/B - Disable User Confirmatations
Prevents the client from asking for confirmation of things like closing open documents or folders.
/O - Maximum number of open folders
Limits the user to the specified maximum number of folders.
/W - Specify window placement
You can specify the co-ordinates for the window in Top, Left, Bottom, Right
/Y - Disable Change Servers Button
Prevents users from adding, changing, or deleting servers from the server list.
/Z - Disable close folder
Prevents the closing of folders. Used in conjunction with /F, it locks the user into a specific folder.
