Publish CMD Window Close
A minor inconvenience, yet a right pain in the backside...whenever the Publish button is pressed (on a Windows install), a command window is opened; after the action has been completed, the window stays open and requires a manual click to close it. Not a drama with one or two Publish actions, but a real wrist killer (type either exit or move the mouse and click) when one is in a RAD cycle.
My question - any way to simply amend an 'exit' to that script and close the window?
Yeah the goal is to have a console that shows up docked to the bottom. I understand your frustration with the current process.
Thanks for the reply...I'll wait for the new version with baited breath.
Take a look at 2.2 behaviour :
@Doug : Just let SA open CMD windows. Then CloseAll (Right-click on task bar button in Windows)
@Phil : the docked console would have been really nice
Yeah I know yoann.colleaux but time did not permit.
I'm looking into the closing issue this is clearly a bug that will be fixed. Does Esc work for you or that's not working either?

A nosy question - why do you use Publish. For my RAD I have the SA project catalogue inside of my web-root so I just save and then refresh in the browser - saves you some mousing

I made a program to run it in background.
Inside the RAR you have the cmd.exe and it's source code.
You can compile it in free pascal if you like, or use the one i already compiled.
Extract cmd.exe to where you instaled Sencha Architect.
For example i installed mine at: W:\SENCHA\SenchaArchitect\
When i click "Publish" button it execute my program and my program executes the cmd from windows system directory passing the received params.

Tangix - you legend. Such an obvious solution...I'm implementing now.
Very clever BinaryCrash. Wondering what this solves so perhaps we can improve our process.
2.3 will include some serious deploy upgrades.
