Write a Project On Open Script

In the Project On Open Script box, you can add a JSL script that will run each time this specific project is opened. For example, you can create a script that creates or modifies reports, prompts the user for information, or writes usage information to the log window.

1. Select Project > Project Settings.

2. Paste the JSL script and click OK.


See Run Startup Scripts to Control Workspaces in the Scripting Guide, which explains how to create a start-up script when any project is opened (instead of a specific project).

To use an existing project as a template for new projects, specify the existing project as a new project template under File > Preferences > Projects.
