Adding scripts to a menu

    I am trying to add specific scripts to a menu, I can add the script using the ID cinema gives it by default, but this is not a locked ID and can change. Is it possible to predefine an ID for a script similar to registering a plugin?


    Just discovered GetCommandName(_<_gs_>_) so now I can just iterate through a range of id's and add the script if it matches a name. Though it would still be nice to lock an ID to a script.

    I just want to make sure we understand what you are talking about: do you talk about scripts from the Script manager? And how exactly do you want to add a script to a menu?

    Best wishes,

    Yes, scripts from the script manager. (If there is another way to load scripts into cinema that would be nice.)

    What I ended up doing is iterating through the 600000000+ ID range and checking the names against preset lists and sort them into subgroups accordingly.

    It would be nice to have a way to identify a script without using the name. If the name gets changed, then it won't get added to the menu. I would have to check the contents of the script to counter act that.

    indeed, the IDs of the scripts are created dynamically and may change every time Cinema starts. You have to use the script name to identify a script. I think one can assume that when the script name is different, this is because the content is different.
