Enhancements in Tally.ERP 9 Releases

Release 3.0

Optional Default TDL Loading

Many Third-Party Applications use Tally’s rapid application development environment to render various complex reports using Tally Definition Language (TDL). Tally.ERP 9 acts as a front end application for various external databases to retrieve and manipulate information, as and when required. Tally, being a comprehensive business application, loads all the TDLs required as per the functional aspects of the Application. In cases where the third party applications require using Tally purely as a development platform, loading of complete application TDLs may prove to be expensive in terms of startup time.

This release onwards, the application TDLs are segregated as:

  • Base TDL Files – This contains the commonly required templates like styles, variables, buttons, and son on, which can be used by any report which is rendered.
  • Default TDL Files – This contains the TDLs which are specifically meant for functional requirements of the Tally.ERP 9 application.

This has enabled us to launch Tally using the minimal Base TDL files avoiding the overhead of loading the Default TDL files. This can be achieved by using the command line parameter /NODEF.

Command Line Parameter – NODEF

Syntax

<Tally Application> /NODEF

Example:

D:\Tally.ERP9\Tally.Exe/NODEF/NOINITDL/TDL:”D:\PartyCustomReports.TDL”

In this case, the Tally.ERP 9 application would start only with Base TDLs, without loading the default TDL Files, which means that Tally Application would start rapidly. None of the INI TDLs will be loaded due to the parameter/NOINITDL. Only the TDL file passed with the parameter/TDL, D:\PartyCustomReports.TDL will be loaded.

Note: In line with the above enhancement, the product Tally.Developer 9 Release 3.0 and above will also support the command line parameter /NODEF. In case the application needs to be started with only the Base TDLs, the option /NODEF will be used.
