Saves a notepad window to disk


long SaveNotepad(BSTR Title, BSTR FileName, BOOL ReplaceExisting);

View list of data type meanings


This saves an existing notepad window to disk.

Title - title of the notepad (used in functions like AppendToNotepad)

FileName - name to save to disk as.

If the file name is empty (ie. "") then it will be saved under its existing file name, if any, or you will be prompted for the name to save it as.


If true - the specified file name becomes the "default" file name for the file. In other words, if you subsequently save from the GUI interface it will automatically use that file.

If false - saves the file under the name you specify, however the "default" file name is unchanged.

WARNING - if a file of the same name exists on disk it will be overwritten, regardless of the ReplaceExisting flag value.

SECOND WARNING - versions 4.13 and earlier of MUSHclient returned 0 on a good save and 1 on a bad save. From version 4.14 onwards it returns 0 on a bad save and 1 on a good save.

Available in MUSHclient version 3.29 onwards.

VBscript example

world.SaveNotepad "my_notepad", "c:/mushclient/notepad.txt", 0

Jscript example

world.SaveNotepad ("my_notepad", "c:/mushclient/notepad.txt", 0);

Lua notes
