Newbie questions: Startup and Install

Post by dtsig » Tue Jan 14, 2014 7:10 pm

In looking at working scripts .. not that samples .. I see subs like Install() or onStartup() (i think) and wondered if these are MMW specific. I don't find calls to them so does MMW look for these?

Just wondering

"OnStartup" is what is called by auto-run scripts, those are the ones that are placed in the "Auto" folder (see wiki).

"Install" is not a standard function, but it's common to have a sub of this nature. It is most likely called from the installation package during install (see wiki).

Yeah, it took me a little while to find them on the wiki, and I knew they were definitely there somewhere! :)
