Hey, thanks for the help!
I am trying to trigger a definition to run at grasshoppers start. I have been looking over the forums for a bit, but I have not found anything that matches what I’m trying to do with the additional functionality in Rh6.
Idea being, someone that doesn’t use grasshopper but needs to process files can just put the definition in a folder that they want to process and then launch the definition and have it run on the files automatically.
Since Rhino 6 can launch a definition without needing an active session of Rhino, i am trying to launch the definition and have it run without any interaction. My first few attempts have been around bool toggle to true, but when the definition opens the rhino command line hangs on a command “grasshopper option (window document solver banner)” and i’m not sure how to get passed it.
is there a better way to trigger a grasshopper file to run in this way?
[Edit] - upon closer inspection, my earlier statement was not correct. a grasshopper that has a bool set to true will open and run. the problem i am actually having is the Format component does not seem operate correctly when this toggle is left true. In my case it does not merge the file name to import, it only passes the F input.
