Re: REXX assign issue

@Amigo1 @nbache @Raziel I still use ARexx alot, for a variety of functions, some simple scripts, some more complex programs and subroutines. Always learning new stuff and (for me) new concepts as I experiment with MicroRexx, RxBGUI, RxMUI and ProAction. I'm not a programmer by trade, just like to ti...

Re: Launching PlayCD freezes system(AmigaOS 4.1 FE)

Update ...

I finally solved this issue on January 14, 2017 ...

Replaced the PlayCD program from AmigaOS 4.1 FE with the one on my AmigaOS 4.0 July 2007 Update disc.
PlayCD Version 52.1 (10/12/2006) works fine with Mixer 1.41 currently on my system.

Re: KingCon failure with FE console.device

I wish I had known about this issue before I wasted many hours last weekend troubleshooting. Many of my ARexx scripts open a console window to communicate with (me) the user. For example, my sendmail program opens a console window for me to compose an email and provides status messages in the same w...

Re: Iconifying a console window

Thanks for all your help guys. Temporary assign works like a charm. :mrgreen: My ARexx program assigns envarc: to ram:, opens a console window and assigns envarc: back to normal assignment. address command 'assign envarc: ram:' call open(console,'CON:60/50//320/AmigaMail/CLOSE') address command 'ass...

Re: Iconifying a console window

Thanks for the replies. I agree it would be a bit tricky to change the icon in ENVARC: each time I launch my program (and go back and reset the icon when done). I don't want to upset any "global" variables used by the Shell console or any system programs.

Thanks,

Re: Console window ... I need scrollbar but not menus

Tony, I forgot to add that while I was using my sendmail program, I chose a menu item, Project > New Shell and my text vanished and was replaced by a new shell process for AmigOS4. The window name was still the same as what I had named it. When I exited from the Shell process, the Shell text vanishe...

Re: Console window ... I need scrollbar but not menus

Hi Tony, Let me back up a bit. I am not attempting to replace the new Shell console with the old console or KingCON. I use the Shell quite alot and I am very pleased with the new look and features, especially the scrollbar and up and down gadgets. Back some years ago, I started programming with ARex...

Console window ... I need scrollbar but not menus

Is there a NOMENU option for the FE console? The LEGACY option takes away the history scrollbar and buttons as well as the menus. I don't want the menus, but I need the scrollbar and scroll up and down buttons. I have been updating some of my ARexx scripts that open console windows for input and out...

Iconifying a console window

Many of my ARexx scripts open console windows to ask for input or display output as the program progresses. Some of my scripts use the CON: console and some use KCON: (KingCON). The new console with OS4.1 FE has most of the features I liked about KingCON, such as vertical scroll bar and scroll butto...
