How to stop macro
« on: December 02, 2004, 09:16:12 PM »

I think I created an endless loop problem by
creating a macro to turn on a lamp based on
conditions and triggered by a timer ( just
to check it out ). The timer has no stop
time so I suspect once it starts the macro
it keeps running it until something tells it
to stop. But what stops it?

The way I understand it a macro stops after
it runs once unless you have your trigger
run from another macro which is started
inside the original one. the timer only
sends a "on" or "off" signal once unless you
have the repeat box checked.
If you suspect you have a loop go to "Tools"
then "Purge Delayed Macros" this will stop
all running macros
