This lets you change the save method for an open notepad window.

The first argument is the title of an existing notepad window. The second argument is one of the following 3 numbers:

0 - Use default method (same as if this function had not been called)
1 - Always offer to save this window if the contents have changed
2 - Never offer to save this window if the contents have changed


NotepadSaveMethod ("test", 1)

The following notepad window types normally close without offering to save:

Line Info
MXP debug (depending on MXP options)
Packet Debug
Plugin Info
XML comments
World Load Error

You could use this to force the saving of something like Packet Debug, or inhibit the saving of a notepad window you created yourself.

Note: Available in version 3.76 onwards.

VBscript example
NotepadSaveMethod "test", 1
Jscript example
NotepadSaveMethod ("test", 1);
Lua example
NotepadSaveMethod ("test", 1)
Returns 0 = Could not do it (eg. that notepad does not exist, or option out of range)
1 = Option changed OK.
Introduced in version 3.76
