SHOW_CMD, what is that?


Does anyone know what SHOW_CMD macro does or means? It is a temporary macro that is created when I run the Get command on a Surround SCM action step. It pops up prompting me for a value, for which I just put '0' and it continues with the process just fine. I can't remember if it shows up on other occasions, but I always handle it the same way.

Why is it created and is it important? Should I make it a project macro with a value of '0' so that it won't disrupt the run process? Is that possible? Thank you in advance.

You probably copied a Surround SCM step from the Surround SCM.bld sample (which contains a projec macro SHOW_CMD set to 0) into another project. The steps in the sample use a field override for the 'Show command-line constructed for call' field referencing the macro SHOW_CMD. Since that macro isn't defined in your project, VBP prompts for its value.

To avoid prompting, you can either remove the field override for that field of the Surround SCM step or create a project macro with that name and a value of 0.
