I think what you are asking for can be achieved by using a FnSet.

could be a function set, but I need that the function be in the jscript command.


jscript command example:


function Execute(params)

{

blablablablablabla...

}


function MoveUp()

{

blablablablabla2......

}


then in the panel of the jscript command I put a Push button that run the MoveUp() function every time I push it"


if this is possible I can use a single jscript command and dont needs a funcion set.

Do not use these lines in your button script:
function MoveUp()
{

}

Just put the blablablablablabla... in the button script. :)

Yes... can you upload an example of what you want to do? Or paste your MoveUp script here?

well, I did not wrotte the script yet... because I was studyng the options first. But I now what I need. I have a JScript Command whith a IN string Attribute named Sequency. and it is displayed in a Edit Control with the multiline on! I need to press a push button and one line gos up! She change her position with her near up line, like these:


Sequency:

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

ccccccccccccccccc

ddddddddddddddddd

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


choice the c line! press the push button then this happens:


aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ccccccccccccccccc

bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

ddddddddddddddddd

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


press again:


ccccccccccccccccc

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

ddddddddddddddddd

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


thats it. then I'll need one move up, one move down and a delete line too. these 3 functions I need.

I think from what I am understanding from you is you would have to call functions from a script by way of an FnSet. Other ways you could do it is break up your script into individual scripts and call them from a button. The button properties is limited but you certainly can run any tS7.6 commands. Here is a simple example.
