How to load a database

Command: load

Description: Opens a database from a file. The user is prompted to save any unsaved changes of the current database.

The file name extension of CADEMIA documents is cademia. It is, however, possible to use an arbitrary file name extension. This feature allows the user to load older CADEMIA documents with file extension cib (CAD in der Bauinformatik).

The command uses a modeless file dialog. It should be noted that user interaction can also take place via the command line dialog. This enables the user to fully describe user interaction in command macros.
