• Mystic - Oneliner question

    From niter3@46:1/108 to All on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 15:39:09
    I'm looking through the docs regarding the oneliners optional data. It says
    if you add the following optional data you can specifiy how many lines you want, etc... This is not working for me.

    <max lines>;<max line length>;<max input field length>

    Here is my example

    6;75;75

    Just tried it out as I've been wanting to replace my oneliners header with a full screen deal and the oneliners in the middle of it. The field and line length seem to work (or did when I did a couple of test one liners) but the actual width of the lines is still full screen and while I can position it on the Y axis on my animated ansi I can't tell it where to start on the X.

    Yea man.. keep mudging around with that till you land on something that works. I dont have anything animated on mine so im not sure what youre going for
    over there. I did alot of crazy Frankenstein surgery on mine that actually turned out good
    but it took several days of trial and error. Don't give up.

    In order to get the line width, I did this under the default.txt in mystic/data. There is an $R65 option I'm using. As for how many lines show
    up, that is still not working for me. The 6;75;75 seem to set how many characters you type, but not how much shows on the oneliner during view.

    Were you able to get how many lines show? I want to change it from 10 to 6...

    Well I got her figured out. After removing the oneliner.dat from mystic/data and starting from scratch. It now only shows 6 lines like I wanted...

    So it's all figured out. If you have any questions let me know.

    n3!

    You can maybe use the $Rxx command in the oneliner list line in default.txt. The $Rxx MCI code will restrict the width of the line to xx chars.

    I don't know if you are making changes to the default.txt file or not. But
    if you do make changes, you need to reload the theme before you'll see any changes. It may be that what ever changes you made are actually working, but you just can't see them because you hadn't reloaded the theme.

    see any changes. It may be that what ever changes you made are actually working, but you just can't see them because you hadn't reloaded the theme.

    To reload the theme go to your account menu off the main menu and select
    your theme. Then go back and test your oneliner. I'm saying this to save
    you time because for years i thought i had to log off and back on again
    to refresh the language file :)

    Yeah, didn't change my width at all. I did change mine to 10;55;55 so once it goes through all of them and 10 news ones are up there I'll see if the width changes.


    Were you able to get how many lines show? I want to change it from 10 to


    No, after I saw your message I tried to set it to 6 and it still shows 10.

    OK. I may go ahead and start from scratch as well then.

    Doesn't work as of yet. I'll keep playing around. I've tried it in my default.txt (actually named something else as I keep default.txt as my
    backup) as well as placing it in the .ans just to see.

    Yeah, I generally log out and back in if I have made any changes to the language file.

    I take it your old oneliner.dat still contained 10 lines of saved written text?
    I suppose if you're going to modify things like that that have old .dat files, it could be at least documented that you would have to delete your old one before starting fresh. Nice catch, dude!

    I had also gotten used to using the $IN MCI code. That limits your input after a prompt to a certain amount of characters.

    Yah, it still contained all 10 lines in the .dat.

    Having said that, what would be the expected outcome if you:

    1) already had 10 lines in the oneliner
    2) changed the menu option to use only 6 lines
    3) Write a new oneliner.

    I'm wondering if maybe it wouldn't adjust itself to less than 10 until after
    a new oneliner was added.

    Worth a test.
