Need to startapp explorer once only in a batch
« on: July 26, 2011, 07:10:20 PM »
Hi.

Im running a batch drawing to pdfs.
What i would like to achieve is open the window explore in the designated PDF folder when that batch is done,
or alternatively have this explorer window open once only.
ie if this explorer window already open, DO NOT open again?

Is there a work around?

Thankyou

Tried but not working

(if (not (startapp "explorer" (strcat "/n,/e," (getvar "dwgprefix"))))
  (startapp "explorer" (strcat "/n,/e," (getvar "dwgprefix")))
)
