  • The ID field is the unique ID for this option. The default ID prefix is CTX

  • The Value field is the value of the option, often a filename path.

  • The Host field is the name of the host computer for which this option applies. If null, this option applies to all computers running JRaceman. If specified as a name, only the computer whose name matches this field will use this option. The host name of the current computer is displayed in the Database/Options tab as Localhost.
