• Xtrn Change

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Sat Jul 16 08:15:53 2022
    Did something change in Version 3.19b as far as the xternals go. The default prompt used to default to [Q], but now it defaults to which ever selection you went into last. Is ther a way to get it back to the old [Q] Default of "Which, Make A Selection or [Q]", or however it was worded.

    I think you're talking about this fix made after v3.19b was released: http://git.synchro.net/gitpushlog.ssjs#0deb94c785d2f6223a00e25839b9bb6c32f9ae31

    Yes, that is the expected behavior. But you can change it by editing xtrn_sec.js if you like.

    OK, Don't know how I missed that one, thought it was something I did.

    Yes, that is the expected behavior. But you can change it by editing xtrn_sec.js if you like.

    OK, I can live with it, was just wondering if it was another victim of one of my brain farts. Since there was a change, is there a @-code that would reflect the same thing on a xtrn_sec.msg menu "Which, Quit or [2]:" That would replace the number. If not, no big deal, but it would be nice. Thanks

    Okay, I think I understand what you're pointing out. I just committed a change to xtrn_sec.js so that a user hitting Enter will Quit (just like before) when using an xtrn_sec.msg menu/display file.

    Outstanding, works like a charm, that made all the difference. Thanks so much.
