Issue Details

I am running a DIAdem script, and I need to stop the script to interact with DIAdem and the VIEW screen. After interacting with DIAdem, I would like to continue running the script again. Is this possible?


Yes, it is possible. The Interaction Mode allows you to interact with DIAdem while a script is stopped. There is an example named "Interrupting Scripts to Use DIAdem Interactively". This example shows the functionality of this mode.

It can be found in DIAdem >> Help >> Examples >> in the Content tab go to the Procedures folder >> Creating Scripts >> More Procedures >> Interrupting Scripts to Use DIAdem Interactively.


Additional Information

The example prompts a dialog box saying "Load New Data". When you click ok, the script gets on hold and you can interact with DIAdem. Then you can run the script again if in DIAdem you go to File >> End Interaction as explained in the example description.
