P:\Chris\Exchange\QC(where drive P could be some network share).
createQC_dragNdrop.bat(you can also drag any file within the txt folder, e.g.
Time elapsed: ... minand a pdf report within your txt folder. It has a version and a folder name attached to it (e.g.
report_v0.63_diabetes.pdf). The version number will increase every time there is an update in PTXQC (big change in version number means big change in functionality). The name is taken from the path where the txt is located in - it helps you to distinguish report files when they are open in a PDF viewer or copied somewhere else. The console window will stay up until you press a key.
There are two ways to customize parameters for a report:
report_vXXX.yaml, where XXX is the PTXQC version number), this report file will be used. Thus, if you already have txt-folder containing a report pdf plus the
report_*.yamlinside, just edit the YAML file and re-run PTXQC.
createQC_dragNdrop_withYAML.bat. This .bat file expects a YAML configuration file right next to itself. This YAML file you need to provide. But no worries. One such YAML file with default parameters is generated each time you invoke a QC report generation. Just take any YAML file from a previous run in any other txt-folder. Copy the YAML file next to the .bat file, and name it
config.yaml. Modify it to your needs using a text editor such as Notepad. From now on, you can use the
createQC_dragNdrop_withYAML.batfor any report which should use this configuration. The usage is identical to the one you already know - just target
createQC_dragNdrop.batwhen dragging a txt-folder.
Note: The second option will take precedence over the first.
