Raj,

Place the code in the BookProperties Startup section. It will only be executed once on startup.

If you need to place it inside the page actions, then you could i.e. use a flag to tell the script that this should only happen for the first start like this:

Code: Select all
If "[flag]" "<>" "False"
   GetMousePos "[172]" "[166]"
   SetMousePos "13" "92"
   Balloon "Click here to open Menu"
   SetVar "[flag]" "False"
EndIf


On startup the content of the var [flag] is NULL or "nothing" and the if-action will be executed. After the balloon was shown the [flag] will be "False" so next time the if-action will not be executed.

Nice one Klaus...
