Script function


Read about scripting




Stops trigger evaluation


void StopEvaluatingTriggers(BOOL AllPlugins);

View list of data type meanings


Call this function from a trigger script to stop trigger evaluation. This would have to be called from "send to script" (not send-to-script-after-omit), nor from a trigger script file, in order to be effective.

This causes trigger evaluation to stop, for the current line, and the current plugin. If not in a plugin, then all triggers in the "main" world trigger list stop being evaluated.

If the argument is true, then no further trigger evaluation takes place, in any further plugins.

Note that since calling a trigger script (script name in Script box) is done after all triggers are evaluated for that plugin, doing this inside a script file will be too late (for the current plugin). It has to be done in send-to-script.

Available in MUSHclient version 4.89 onwards.
