Hi,

I want to do a simple thing (so I thought). I want to simply open (launch) an external program from an EA. (not in the EA)

So just for exampe purposes. Let us say I wanted to open Microsoft word when a certain thing happens in the EA.

I have doen this before but I cannot find the script, I have spent 2 hours searching the web. Next time I will save the code somewhere safe!

int ShellExecuteA(int hwnd, string lpOperation, string lpFile, string lpParameters, string lpDirectory, int nShowCmd);

#import


init()

{

return(0);

}


start()

{

// when your thing happens.....

ShellExecuteA(NULL, "open", "notepad.exe", "", "", 3);


return(0);

}


deinit()

return(0);

}
