Delete Current Workspace from Current Project.


CodeWright provides an unnamed workspace associated with each project. When the project is made the "Current Project" the definition of the workspace is used to define the current configuration.

CodeWright allows you to save the current configuration of the Current Project and give it a name.

You can have multiple configurations saved for a project each with a different name. You can then change the configuration to a previously saves state by issuing a command that references the name you assigned when you saved it.

You can update the saved configuration information.

For some unknown reason, there is no command or function provided for deleting a named workspace from a project.

tlaDeleteWorkspace provides this capability.


  • Position to any workspace in any project
  • issue tlaDeleteWorkspace.
  • When prompted, answer the following question ...

    Is it acceptable to delete the following workspace?
    Project ........ project
    Workspace ........ workspace


tlaDeleteWorkspace( )
