AutoStart script

Post by pitamar531 » 03 Jun 2017, 17:13

Is it possible to auto-run script upon double clicking it ?
There was a similar post where someone was told to use the -r paramater but i have no idea what that is

Not sure, you need to pick some file extension, associtate it with LuaMacros and somehow forse the -r parameter befroe the file name.
Not sure if it's possible in windows, otherwise I could drop that -r parameter...

Thanks for the response :)
Before everything, I'd like to thank you for the program its amazing !
Secondly, I made luamacros the default app for lua file extenstions so that double-clicking the file launches the program with the script ready to go (all you need to do is hit run).

what is the -r paramater ? Is there a way to automaticaly run the script apon launching it in luamacros ?

This is the role of -r parameter - when used it starts the script automatically just after loading (as lumacros argument)

From command prompt, not by double clicking to associated file

Not by double clicking to lua file but to modified luamacros icon.
What you can do is you can create shortcut of luamacros.exe and in the command line parameter you can add "-r name_of_your_lua_file". Then it's executed automatically.
