I would rather not have it behave one way for logon scripts and another for all other scripts. I don't even use break off for my logon script. I say either change it across the board or leave it as is - but don't mix and match.

I guess "Polls" are not longer an option on this board?

Sure they are, you may or may not be able to post one, but they still are available.

Looking at the last posts, why not add

Break On
Break Off

on top of all of your scripts?

well, its not so much a matter of what gets added. mostly everyone (when they remember) put BREAK ON at the top ... its when you forget to add it - thats kinda what we're discussing - if we forget to add it, what should the default be - we're all saying the default should be BREAK ON (not BREAK OFF).

Indeed, it looks like you and Bryce (or Lonk idk now) came up with a smashing (almost perfectly backward compatible) solution. If @LOGONMODE = 1 then BREAK OFF is the default, if not, then BREAK ON is the default. Might be mildly confusing to the un-initiated at first, but definitely a nice idea.

I love this idea. I have to disagree with Shawn, however, what IS (more than) mildly confusing to the unitiated is getting logged off when they didn't explicitly tell KiX to do so. It confused me when I first started with KiX.

As is often the case, it would boil down to users not reading the manual. One would hope that a user using KiX for both admins scripts AND logon scripts would understand the differing behavior. If they are only running admin scripts (the majority of newbies???) they would not experience any logoffs. [that's an improvement] If the majority of newbs start with logon scripts, then they'd be in the same boat they are now; close the window, get logged out by default. [that's status quo]

This solution does seem to offer the best of both worlds.

...the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

Can't find that option in ASE and KiXtarter but they might be there too.

I added this option at the request of a couple users so if you check this off in the options screen it will add a BREAK=ON whenever you start a new script.;o=&fpart=1

ASE uses script templates instead of hard-coding specific bits of code. If you want BREAK ON, then put that in your default kix template.
