User contributed LUA Scripts

As the scripting language LUA opens the possibility to change WT-behaviour to personal needs, there are user contributed scripts available. This collection here is for your convenience. Please try and use at your own risk.

ESM.WTS

The ESM.WTS script is used by win-test for the ESM-Mode (Enter Sends Message).

F5VHI/SV3SJ

I've followed the instructions of Larry to have a custom esm script and managed to write one during the brakes of WAE (yes, this WAE could have more participants :-) and even test it during the contest. It worked great. Scripting seems to introduce no noticeable delays when the enter key is pressed.

I am not a strong contender how ESM should be, other than staying usable, intuitive and reproducible. What 5B4AGN suggested sounded pretty reasonable to me and here is my attempt.

Simply place it in the "scripts" directory of WT, named esm.wts (any other name and WT will ignore the external script). At the top of the script you will find a variable setting:

shortcq = false;

Setting it to true, it will convert the CQ calling and the TU part of the QSO in short forms (a la 5b4agn) and the exact contents of the messages are defined in the two lines that follow the shortcq setting. I have also added the possibility to have an exchange filled in and no call (in that case the script sends CL?)

I must say I am very impressed by the functionality that WT opens to the users with lua scripts. I would really like to see more API calls made available and WT functions using scripts (programmable keys, even so2r, etc)

In the mean time if you have suggestions to improve the script let me know. I can easily inlcude them.

Enjoy,

Nick
