• Call Built-in Editor from Javascript

    From Blakdeth@VERT/MASQBBS to All on Sunday, June 01, 2008 10:07:21
    This might be wishful thinking, but is there a way to call the SBBS built-in editor from a Javascript process? I would love to have the ability to call the built-in editor in much the same way one would call getstr. That is, you would have the option of passing in text to edit, and then the built-in editor
    would return the edited text as a string to the calling process. Thoughts?

    You can use console.editfile() to edit or create a text file (see http://synchro.net/docs/jsobjs.html#console_methods for details) and then read that file into your script with File.readAll().

    Almost, and you can do it...

    console.editfile() and system.temp_dir are a good place to start. Though I don't see a function to generate a temporary filename, so you'll want to either do that or put it in the node directory instead.

    Thank you digital man and Deuce. I appreciate the input. I will give this a try.
