# Save

# Introduction

Warning

We recommand that you use either ListViewContentXML or ListViewContentJson instead of our custom system which is old and outdated.

# a. Required configuration

To use the following methods, you need to use the version 1.7 or higher of LeoCorpLibrary, and put this at the top of your code file:

C#

using LeoCorpLibrary;

VB

Imports LeoCorpLibrary

# b. How it works

Here's how the Save system works:

  1. The system is going to separate the elements with a separator which is by default (*E*).
  2. The system is going to separate the elements' columns with a separator which is by default (*C*)
  3. The system save this content in a specified file.

Here's an example of a file:

Test1(*C*)Test2(*C*)Test3(*E*)Test4(*C*)Test5(*C*)Test6(*E*)Test7(*C*)Test7(*C*)Test8(*E*)

Note

You can save the file in any formats, even custom ones: The system doesn't care.
