 Re: SketchBlock 1.7 Out Now!
Thanks for the new release

Just a though, at every startup i got an AmigaDOS requester:

Quote:
Insert a disk
SketchBlock:

Process: 271 "ARexx"


Is it possible to avoid that automatically ?

Yes add the assign to your user startup.

;BEGIN SketchBlock
Assign SketchBlock: <pathtosketchblock>
;END SketchBlock

add the DEFER option if you don't want the assign to appear in requesters until needed.

@broadblues
Why does it need a "Sketchblock:" assignment? Can't it just use "PROGDIR:"? If there are external "plugins" or scripts which need the assignment, then couldn't Sketchblock just issue something like:

AssignLock("Sketchblock", Lock("PROGDIR:", ACCESS_READ))

Of course no, but you may advice the users that an assign is mandatory, altrough isn't better to get rid this assign at all ?

As I explained at the end of this thread

http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum ... t_id=72757#forumpost72757

the assign is used for ARexx to find the scripts referenced in the menus and now the keyboard shortcuts. Non of the alternate methods dealt with the situation that the 'commands' in the xml file could be either 'scripts' or internal ARexx commands, and that to add any extra parsing would be dupliacting the work that arexx.class is allready doing.

It's not strictly mandatory as the user is encouraged to edit the xml prefs and create their own menu setups. (there will be a GUI for this later).

But, and I quote:

Quote:


INSTALLATION

Unpack archive to your prefered destination and add the assign SketchBlock:
to that location.

That is another option, similar the way AWeb created "AWebPATath:" when it was active. I have thought about that, but I was never sure how friendly a thing that was to do...

Would using APPDIR:Sketchblock be a better solution? No need for Sketchblock: assign in startup scripts.
