Scripting Demo and Tutorial

For a short scripting tutorial please click here.
The hello.js script demonstrates the simplest form of script supported - a single line script that writes to the active file:
To invoke this script please go to Scripting in the Advanced menu and click on the Scripts... item in the submenu. This will present the Scripting configuration dialog. If you press the Add button and navigate to the "scripts" directory below the installation directory you may add " hello.js" to the list of scripts available to be run. You may assign a hotkey to the script by clicking in the Hotkey field and pressing the desired keys. Scripts that are added will be dynamically updated in the bottom of the Scripts... submenu referenced above and may be invoked through hotkeys or by clicking on the script name in this list.
To be fully self-contained this script actually creates a new Edit document to write to and the script may be run without opening any documents.
The stringvar.js script shows the ability to capture user input and store it in variables for later use in the script:
This may be invoked as described above for the hello.js script. To run this demo, please open any text file and specify the string you wish to search for and the number of occurrences you wish to find. The script will then open a new document and write the specified number of matching lines to the new file.
For information regarding the commands supported for scripting, please see the Scripting commands Help topic.
