Opening files from within archive - Close temp dialog

Post by *DRP535 » 2019-05-07, 00:00 UTC

Is there a way of configuring TC to automatically delete/close the temporary file dialog that results when you open a file from within an archive? Instead of it remaining there on the screen and needing to be clicked on after whatever has been opened is closed I mean?

Try and se EditWaitTime=0 or -1 in the [Configuration] section of your wincmd.ini file.

From Help:
EditWaitTime=2 Timeout value when editing files from an archive or ftp server: If an editor closes within this amount of seconds, assume that it's a multiple document editor and show dialog where user can confirm when editing has ended. Set to 0 to turn off this feature. Set to -1 to not show this dialog at all (e.g. when the file was passed via DDE to the associated program).
