Add Code Modules

When creating an MDG Technology file, you can include code modules for which you have set up code templates and data types. The modules can be for modifications to the system default languages, or for languages you have defined yourself using the code templates and the Code Template Editor. Before you can set up a code template for a new language in the editor, you must define at least one data type for the language. You can also specify code options for the language, which are additional settings that are not covered by the data types or code templates; they are held in an XML document that you include in the MDG Technology file with the module.
