• XTRN menu questions!

    From Alpha to All on Sunday, August 29, 2021 15:04:40
    Hey there! I've got a couple XTRN related questions, hoping I could get some advice...

    1. When I'm on the MAIN menu, hitting a key that's not defined in the command shell reloads the menu (I think).
    How can I make the XTRN menu function that way? Right now, hitting return exits back the the main menu. I'd like to reload XTRN when that happens.

    For context, I have a Global Hot Key Event (CTRL-U) that loads "?nodelist.js -active -clear -home" but if a user is left with the prompt and no menu...

    2. Is it possible to launch an external door program from a Global Hot Key? If so, I assume I'd need to write custom javascript launcher?

    Thanks again for any help. It's very much appreciated.

    Modify exec/xtrn_sec.js to behave how you like.

    Yes.

    Any external program can be launched, not just JavaScript scripts.
