how to prevent taskbar activity highlight activated by gagged text ?

Post by SilentFish »

good morning,

i have a "keep alive" script, that repeats an action every 5 minutes, and gags both the action and the reply from the MUD.

even with the outgoing and incoming text gagged, this event still triggers the taskbar activity highlight.

is there a way to prevent gagged text from triggering this ?

or, is there perhaps a better "keep alive" script that i might use ?

currently i just use a timer to send a silent speak command and a trigger to "deleteLine()" both the sending of that and the reply from the MUD.

or, a better way to gag text, maybe it's the trigger/deleteLine() method that is the flaw ?

any advice appreciated.

Yeah you have a good point here, Mudlet will still alert even if all text is gagged and nothing ends up being shown. I think it makes sense to fix it in Mudlet as that'd be the most intuitive behaviour and how you'd expect it to work.
