TAlh provides two options for modifying the alarm configuration;

Modifying the Run-Time Configuration


The run-time configuration of an alarm or an alarm group is modified on the dialog which is opened by right-clicking on an alarm or alarm group or on the corresponding in-line display.

Note:

TAlh runtime config


Modifying the Alarm Configuration File


Permanent changes to the alarm configuration file can only be made if TAlh was started  using the "-e" command line switch.
Configuration changes take effect immediately for the current TAlh session.
A save of the configuration file is necessary to persist the changes beyond the duration of the current TAlh session.

The -e command line switch enables the permanent configuration editing functions of TAlh.
If TAlh is started with the -e command line switch

If TAlh is started without the -e command line switch

Modifying Alarm Guidance

The guidance for alarms can always be edited. CTRL-right click on an alarm to get the popup-dialog for modification.
Modified guidance will be saved to the alarm configuration file if TAlh has write access to the alarm configuration file.

Modifying Alarm Filters

Alarm filters can always be edited. CTRL-right click on an alarm to get the popup-dialog for modification.
Note:
This modification creates a temporary alarm filter which overrides any filter defined in the alarm configuration file.
Ttemporary filters are only valid for the current TAlh session and  arenot saved to the alarm configuration file.
