Scripts Editor at Start - 27/07/11 04:49 AM

I using mIRC only as scripting language, main mIRC window running hidden in system tray.

How to open mIRC Scripts Editor when mIRC run? Without(!) open main mIRC window.


also feature suggestion: add scripts editor in system tray menu.

In the options (alt + o > Display > options > tray), check the box "on startup place mirc in tray" to have mirc in tray on startup.
To open the script editor on startup, you can use the following code:
Code:
on *:start:s_editor
alias -l s_editor .comopen a WScript.Shell | .comclose a $com(a,SendKeys,3,bstr,% $+ r)

Wims, I don't see the purpose of the alias when you can place the code directly under the start event.

I think this is what you actually want:
Code:
on *:appactive:{
  if ($mouse.key & 1) {
    .comopen a WScript.Shell 
    .comclose a $com(a,SendKeys,3,bstr,% $+ r)
  }
}
when the mIRC is minimized in the tray, you double left-click on it to open it along with the script editor.

The purpose is that he can re-use the alias

Thanks for reply.
But I use mIRC in Wine and this com object doesn't work, huh..

My problem solved, - now I just use external editor for mIRC Scripts (vim), because my WM (EvilWM) crashed mIRC smile
And use simple "exec" script for control mIRC from IRC.

In the future, it helps to mention if you're using WINE. You wouldn't have been given a COM script if they knew that from the start. smile

Sorry for 'bump', just find another solution for problem.

Check winecfg > Graphics > Emulate a virtual desktop.

Now wine have own window for all applications, and mIRC no more crash. =)
