• Re: display a banner on m

    i'd like to display a banner file when user joins a specific message
    area on my mystic setup. not msg group but a msg area (local). i think there was a way of doing that but im too dumb to find it from the doc
    and too lazy to start coding some mpl .. i think there was something but
    i cant just remember what it was.

    This MPL script will do it for you. It display "marea<index#>" from the
    theme text directory whenever a user selects a different message base. This replaces the MA menu command.

    [---SNIP---]
    Uses
    User,
    MBase;

    Var
    BaseNum : LongInt;
    Begin
    GetThisUser;

    BaseNum := UserMBase;

    MenuCmd('MA', ParamStr(1));

    GetThisUser;

    If BaseNum <> UserMBase Then Begin
    GetMBase(UserMBase);

    DispFile ('marea' + Int2Str(MBaseIndex));
    End;
    End
    [----END----]

    I think you can define an ansi to display in the message area setup. Not sure tho.

    There might be an option for it. I don't even know either! I've been working on this stuff for going on 20 years so even I forget what I build at times...

    Especially because of Mystic 2.x in addition to this, and there are two more Mystics... and Mystic 3 written in Java (code now lost) and a code named Mystic/X which is the most recent thing.

    I don't know what does what anymore :) But I think that script will take
    care of things for now, even if Mystic already does it ;)

    I just checked. It does not have such an option. I'm not sure what I was thinking.

    Actually, I do know what I was thinking. There is that option in the Files area. It is just not in the Message areas.

    mystic/x sounds dangerous!
