Startup Action

This dialog will appear at IDE startup when there are recent projects to reopen. If there are no recent projects, this dialog does not appear. (It also does not appear in the Allegro CL Express Edition). The dialog asks whether to open one of the recent projects, and also has other choices, such as whether to create a new project. The choices are presented as radio-buttons:

This dialog may be disabled for future lisp sessions by unchecking the check-box labeled Show this dialog at IDE startup time near the bottom of the dialog. The dialog may also be enabled or disabled on the IDE1 tab of the Options dialog (displayed with Tools | Options) by using the check-box labeled Ask for Action at IDE Startup, or by calling (setf ask-for-action-at-ide-startup). When this dialog is disabled, the IDE never opens or creates a project at startup time, though you can open or create a project any time later.

This dialog is never shown if the IDE is started up with a -project command line option for an initial project to open. Instead, that project is always opened, regardless of the value of ask-for-action-at-ide-startup. (This happens when you double-click a .lpr project definition file in the operating system's file manager.)

Various IDE windows may or may not appear when creating or opening a project. For more information, see these IDE configuration options:
