>4.82. I wonder if it is a difference between versions of windows, or
>an issue with the ini? Have you tried it with a fresh ini, just to
I created a new document in Ntab, named it test2.ini and saved it while
empty of any contents whatsoever, saved to NoteTab Pro's exe/program
So, if a fresh ini is a clean slate ini that is yet to have any contents . .
. then my answer is "yes" I tried it with a fresh ini. And, when I run
your clip with just such a blank ini, no clipbar gets loaded.
I just now did a wee bit more testing of your clip on my computer.
**Due to the initialization and action of your clip, the results are
eventually written to the ini. But the action of loading "the requested"
clipbar does not occur until later. Such action does not occur until after
Ntab shutdown (HTML instance as per following test results) and the running
of the clip occurs again for a 2nd time.**
I ran your clip 4 or 5 times on the same (test2.ini) ini and the same (HTML)
Ntab instance. The only thing different each time I ran the clip was for me
to choose a different clipbar for the clip to load.
The following test results occured:
note: In the following, I put the .ctb before the semi colon at the
front of the line merely for the ease of seeing the sequence.
1. *chose mystuff.ctb: I ran your clip and chose the mystuff.ctb With
empty ini, no clipbar was loaded.
2. *chose Utilities.ctb: I shutdown that instance of Ntab. I deleted
ntabcommandlines.txt. The test2.ini now has configuration data in it. I
ran your clip again. This time I chose utilities.ctb. And when the
test2.ini instance of Ntab Pro came up, the mystuff.ctb was loaded.
3. *chose mystuff.ctb: Shutdown that same instance Ntab again. Deleted
ntabcommandlines.txt Ran your clip again, same as before, except this
time I chose the mystuff.ctb. And when the test2.ini instance of Ntab Pro
came up, the utilities.ctb was loaded.
4. A couple more repeats of this process confirmed that a continuation of
this exact same alternating and repetitive pattern occurs.
Dunno. commandline is commandline. Nonetheless, it *must* be loading the
clipbar from the ini. Are we sure the clipbar is a commandline item?
Using your clip, on my system, it is not loading .ctb from commandline.
Ntab writes to ini upon closedown or shutdown. It is at that moment that
the (your clip's) requested .ctb is written to ini. Then, from ini, the
previously requested specific .ctb is loaded the NEXT time Ntab is launched.
The sys used for above test: Win 98SE. Tyan MB with Via MVP chipset.
Pentium 233 MMX socket 7. 9 GB IBM HD. 16 MB AGP video (until I work
on it and get the 32 MB card installed). 128 MB PC100 SDRAM. Me, the
ubiquitous operator of machine, sys, etc.
I have a PII 400 MHZ Intel BX chipset Abit BE6 II MB machine. Maybe at
another time I'll do the same trial on it and discover what the results.
Bye. Best regards. Alan.
