On Open script/macro

Post by amoyer » Tue Dec 15, 2009 12:20 pm

What I would like to do is have a message box pop up when I open a particular show file.

I'm assuming that I can do this but I can't seem to figure out where this would be inserted or called from.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Make a utility cue list with one cue in it that has no fixture data. Make the properties of that cue list AUTORUN. Add a macro to that cue that has an HC.MessageBox() macro.

This show file does exactly this.
