Erweiterter Datenbankeditor.


Miranda stores all core and plugin settings in its database. The database is, in some ways, comparable to the Windows registry, though it is much simpler but it basically serves the same purpose to Miranda than the registry does to Windows and most Windows applications. The advantage of the database solution is that it is portable and easy to backup – no need to collect settings from the registry or reinstall everything – your profile database holds everything, settings, contacts and messages.

The DbEditor plugin can be used to view all the settings currently in the database, both global and "per contact" settings. There are 2 types of settings you can view or change:

  • Global settings – in the left pane of the editor, they can all be found under the Settings node.
  • Per contact settings – each contact has its own node in the left pane and you must expand it to see all settings that are stored for a particular contact.

Der Datenbankeditor kann nicht zum Ansehen oder Bearbeiten von Nachrichten verwendet werden.

Sie benötigen dieses Plugin um einige erweiterte Einstellungen in Miranda NG zu ändern, welche keine Einstellung im Einstellungsdialog haben. Seien Sie sich bewusst dass die Verwendung dieser Einstellungen nicht offiziell unterstützt wird und einige unbekannte Nebeneffekte haben kann.


DbEditor in der Profilverwaltung starten

There are several ways to open database editor window:

  • From the main menu: Main menu → Database → Database Editor++
  • By hotkey (default is ⇧ Umsch+⊞ Win+D)
  • From contact menu: Open user tree in DBE++ (opens settings tree of the given contact)
  • On Miranda NG start:
    • from Profile manager – select DbEditorPP.dll in the drop-down list "Start in Service Mode with" (see the screenshot)
    • using /svc:dbeditor command line parameter

Using it is straightforward, very much like you are using registry editor. In the left pane, you see the modules and when you click a module, the right pane will show all the settings for that module. Modules are usually organized either per plugin, per protocol or per function group and unlike the registry there are no sub-keys. The hierarchy is simpler, only one level of Module → Setting.

Always remember to use the global settings when using the database tweaks for TabSRMM and do not change any non-documented values. This is as dangerous as randomly changing values in the Windows registry – a wrong change can seriously harm the functionality of Miranda. So only change values you know or were advised to change.

Ändern Sie keine kontaktspezifischen Einstellungen solange Sie nicht wissen was Sie tun.

Zusätzliche Funktionalitäten

Database editor has some additional functions which can assist with:

  • Watching a value in real time (useful for debugging when you need to see when database values are changed).
  • Exporting and importing large chunks of settings between different profiles.
  • Deleting needless resident settings (those that should exist only in memory without being written to the database).
