Precisely. (Or a better way would be to just read the registry value IMO but whatever =p)

Then how do you do that?  ;)
Something like:
JScript code:
var aWshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
 
//Read a reg key value:
var ScriptPath = aWshShell.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Patchou\\Messenger Plus! Live\\ScriptsDir");

And that returns the root script directory?

I like this script very much.  In fact here is a suggestion I'd love to see:
Parse window XML of existing windows, and allow to edit them.

You have a problem or issue with Windows, Internet
Explorer or Office?

I thought about that, but I have no idea of how to read and edit existing XML files.  :S

Maybe the attached library gives you an idea.

About the scripts' folder: I use this method:

JScript code:
function GetScriptFolder() {
    var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
    var ret = fso.GetFolder(MsgPlus.ScriptFilesPath + "\\..").Path;
    fso = null; // Clean up
    return ret;
}


Works for me..

EDIT::

Checking whether 'something' exists within an object:

JScript code:
var myObj = new Object();
myObj.someProperty = "Hello world!";
 
if("someProperty" in myObj) Debug.Trace("Exists!");
if("someOtherProperty" in myObj /* this is false; code won't be run */) Debug.Trace("Exists");

Or you could do it the proper way...

Umm...  I'm afraid I don't really understand that.  :S  All I get is that XML comes in nodes, and the script would read each "child" node of each "parent", and put it into the arrays (e.g. the first control ID of the first window into the WndCtrlIDs[0][0] variable).  But I have no idea how to do it...  :(
