Hashtag command entry


Hashtag commands

The Hashtag commands can be used as an alternative method to the javascript console for data entry and display changes.

Address bar hashtag command
Select the Address bar, type the Hashtag of #texts=#;textshow=id; (as example above) and press the Enter key once.
The result of the above Hashtag command is to display text upon plan view, the object item of 0 would display text of #0
For novice end-users; The Hashtag is the end fragment of the URL address and starts with the # symbol (hash)

Address bar Hashtag checking and processing detail/s:
Only after initial page loadup has been completed - And by default; A single timed function loop will check the Address bar for hashtags and when finding a command will execute the required function to complete the command;
Each command (left to right) is processed separate to other commands, the processed command (left most) is removed from the Hashtag and any remaining commands (on right) are automaticly re-entered into the address bar and processed without setting the loop function check timer.

The Hashtag command address bar checking may be deactivated by using the javascript command of rXurihashcommandenable=false; (default value is true)
The # symbol (hash) can be automaticly entered at end of page loadup and may be activated by using the javascript command of rXurihashpromptshow=true; (default value is false). As a work-around, use of the NEW button may automaticly show the # symbol (hash).
