Exit editor from within code

Post by Grovkillen » Mon Oct 02, 2023 6:34 am

If you want to close the editor after the script ends (for whatever reason) you can do this using PyExec:

Code: Select all

PyExec>import sys%CRLF%sys.exit(),,
Let>ME=%Script%

Running: 15.0.24

When I tried this it not only closed the editor it closed Macro Scheduler. Perhaps you are running and editing your scripts from Windows File Explorer?

Not that it's a bad thing. A method to close Macro Scheduler from a running script has been requested before.

Yes I'm not using the MS "launcher".
