• File Auto Pause

    From Adam B@VERT to All on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 22:58:47
    Hello everyone. I am setting up a BBS system and am currently customizing it. When a user creates an account I am having the caller contract displayed. Its a rather big file, more than 25 lines. Is there an easy way to have the file auto-pause when it is being diplayed? Or will I just have to create a routine in my javascript file to do this?

    Thanks!

    -Adam

    What JS method are you using to display the file? The console.printfile() method will automatically pause for each screen, normally.

    Thanks for the reply. I am using:

    console.printfile( "/sbbs/text/contract.txt", P_NONE );

    I also tried it with no 2nd argument. No pause.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks! - Adam

    Do you have "Screen Pause" turned off in your user config?

    Things to try:

    1. Verify that none of the lines in the file are > 79 chars in length.
    2. Add the code "@pon@" (uppercase the PON part) to the top off the file.

    Do you have "Screen Pause" turned off in your user config?

    Well, there is no logged in user when this is shown. The user is in the craeation process. This might be why.

    The PON macro worked! Thanks!
