Popup Window command
You can specify a condition that should be met for the action to be performed. If the condition is false then the command is skipped. See How to use If Condition for more details.
If you specify an image for the popup window, its size is automatically calculated corresponding to the size of the image. If you use a text popup window, you can change the window size. For that, add a special item to Additional Settings list. The name of the variable should be S or S:A. In the first case, specified values are added to the current width and height, but, in the second case, you have to specify absolute values of the width and height. The value must contain the width and height separated by colon. By default, the size is specified as pixels but you can specify percents, too. For example,
// The width and height are increased by 1.5 times Variable Name: S:A Value: 150%:150%
// The width is not changed, the height is increased by 200 pixels. Variable Name: S Value: 0:200
// The width is not changed, the height is increased by 2 times. Variable Name: S:A Value: 100%:200%
// The width is increased by 10%, the height is increased by 30%. Variable Name: S Value: 10%:30%
Dcap - you can re-define the caption of the window. It is enough to specify Dcap variable in the Additional settings.
Popicon - you can show your own icon which is shown near the text. Add this variable and specify the icon file which you need.
