Make Multi-Line Trigger

Allows you to quickly generate a multi-line trigger.

Trigger on:

Enter the multi-line text to be matched. This is automatically generated from selected text in the output window, if any. The text is converted to a regular expression, so that things like .()[] will be "escaped" with a backslash in front of it.

You do not need to enter \n for a newline, these will be generated automatically at each linebreak.

Match Case

If checked, the trigger will only match the exact case shown, otherwise it will match upper or lower-case versions of the text.

OK

When you click OK, a trigger will be added to the world's trigger list. This trigger will be:


  • A regular expression (as required for multi-line triggers)

  • Multi-line, with the line count set to the number of lines in the match text

  • Keep evaluating (so other triggers will also match the line)

  • Send to output

  • Send the entire matching trigger ("%0")

  • Group as "Multi Line"



The intention is that you would then edit the multi-line trigger in the trigger configuration for the world and make it do whatever you want. You may also want to replace variable parts of the text with (.+) or similar to act as wildcards.
