Is there any way to have a function in an include file automatically run without having to explicitly calling the function?

I tried calling the function from the Define section (what is that section called?), but got a warning when I compiled, and I assumed that it did not run.

An include file is the same as pasting the code into your EA at that point. Uncalled code is never called.

I realize that, but sometimes someone figures out a clever way to accomplish things that no one else thought of. I have done it a time or two myself.

One example is multi colored lines. Originally someone said "you can't change the color of part of a line", but then someone figured out that you could superimpose one line on top of the other and leave gaps in each so it appears to be multi colored.
