Re: [Clip] Closing DOS window
- Abair, thank you for your suggestions. I'm running XP-HE SP1. I open the "DOS"
window by running a batch (.bat) file on Windows start-up. The "start" command
with no switches doesn't start NoteTab; with switches "/B /D" NoteTab starts,
but the "DOS" window stays open (the same as starting NoteTab without using
"start"). Since NoteTab does not exit, there is no command prompt left in the
"DOS" window, so no commands following the NoteTab invocation are executed;
therefore, an EXIT command will not be executed. I have not yet tried your
suggestion to put the batch file in the same folder as the NoteTab executable.
Larry, thanks for all of the Clips to build command lines to start NoteTab. I
have not yet had the time to study them in detail.
Jody, thanks for your further suggestions. I could not find any command window
option to exit on close, and, even if it existed, I don't think it would work
because I want to leave NoteTab open. Because NoteTab doesn't exit, the command
processor doesn't regain control. As per your suggestion, I tried adding delays
between the ^FocusApp "<batch file name>" and ^!Keyboard ALT+SPACEBAR C
commands, but that didn't help.

H. Savage, thank you for the information on NoteTab minimization.
Jody, thanks for the information on keyboard-related commands. The organization

information you've sent.
