[Pattern tab] [Options tab] [Testing tab] [Trigger Patterns]
This Settings Editor dialog page allows you to edit the properties of a Trigger.
The ID field is used to assign a short name to this trigger. This short name can be used with the #T+ and #T- commands to enable and disable the trigger.
Normally, triggers are set to a Type of Pattern which indicates that the trigger should fire when the pattern of text is received from the MUD. Expression triggers evaluate the expression stored in the Pattern field after each line is received from the MUD and executes the commands if the pattern expression is true. Alarm triggers use the pattern field to specify a time when to execute the trigger. See the #ALARM command for more information on time pattern values. Command Input triggers test the command entered on the command line and can change this command before it is sent to the MUD.
The Trigger On option determines whether the trigger pattern is detected at the end of each line (Newline), or after a full buffer of text is received from the MUD (Prompt). You can select both if necessary.
You can specify the color required for the first character of the line from the MUD by selecting Line Color and then clicking on the color box to the right. Select the color combination required to fire this trigger.
