Possible to set timeout on Multiple Choice Menu?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm hoping someone can get me point in the right direction on this request. I'm wondering if it's possible to have a timeout on a MCM? Something like if the user hasn't selected an A or B choice after 10 seconds then default to choice B and execute. Sounds simple enough but I can't seem to get it to work with the usual REPORT, DELAY, loop options. 


Thanks for any help you can provide.

Not by design, but you could use two macros. I could imagine having a macro that only has the MCM and stores the result in a file, registry, or such, and the main macro could control it. Then a loop with 1 second delay without the "Wait for this macro to terminate before proceeding" option in the Macro Run command.
