Macro Save File

Controls: Options >> Macro Dialog >> Save File
Macro: SaveMAC

This button allows you to save the entire list of macros as a file with a .MAC extension. If you name the file Daqarta0.MAC it will be loaded automatically at the start of each session. Other .MAC files can be auto-loaded instead; see the discussion under Macro Load File.

NOTE: This button is disabled after the trial period, unless a Professional license key is present. However, you may continue to load and use macro files you have previously created, and you may create and use macros within a session without saving to a file.

If you make any changes to macros, you will automatically be prompted to save them when you exit Daqarta.

Macro Notes:

SaveMAC is not a valid macro command when the Macro Dialog is open. It is primarily intended for use from a Remote Control program, since the above exit prompt does not apply to changes made via remote control. You will probably want to use the A.SaveMAC form to save without a Save As dialog or any need for user intervention... see below.

The SaveMAC macro has no effect if any File Open or Save As dialog is already active.

SaveMAC= without a name will open the Save As dialog showing all .MAC files, with the default set to Daqarta.

SaveMAC="MyMacros" will open the Save As dialog with the default name set to MyMacros. (Note that quotes are needed around all filenames in macros.) If you accept this by hitting Enter or the Save button in that dialog, Daqarta will assume you want to save a file named MyMacros.MAC. If that file already exists, you will be prompted to replace it.

A.SaveMAC="MyMacros" will save MyMacros.MAC directly, without any Save As dialog. Note that if the file already exists, it will be overwritten without any confirmation prompt.

SaveMAC can use string variables and expressions. For example, SaveMAC=Field1 will use the contents of Field1 as the default file name, and A.SaveMAC=Field1 will save a file with that name directly.

Similarly, if the Macro Variable Var0 holds a value of 12, then SaveMAC="Test"+Var0 will set a default file name of Test12.
