Script function

Sends text to the command window


long SetCommand(BSTR Message);

View list of data type meanings


This lets you send text to the command window. It will only act if the command window is currently empty (to avoid wiping out something you are typing).

Because of this you cannot test "setcommand" by typing it into the command window, because by definition, the command window will not be empty (it will have the "setcommand" in it). You must do it from a script, or an immediate window.

VBscript example

world.SetCommand "think Here is another command"

Jscript example

world.SetCommand("think Here is another command");

PerlScript example

$world->SetCommand("think Here is another command");

Python example

world.SetCommand("think Here is another command")

Lua example

SetCommand ("think Here is another command")

Return value

eCommandNotEmpty : Command area was not empty
eOK: Set OK
