Silent Import

Hi,
I'm importing gbXML data into Ecotect via LUA "cmd("model.import C:\\Database\\Data_GH.xml")" - all works fine, however I wanted to import the data in without any dialog box showing up as I need Ecotect to run in the background. Is there any command to do this?

Regards,
Dirk

almost a month passed and not one response - great community here.

Basically I'm writing a plugin that connects Grasshopper (Rhino Parametrics) with Ecotect to teach for a Sydney University course and since there's an annoying Ecotect dialog that pops up with gbXML import, it looks like my only option for a silent interface is to basically re-create a LUA script within Grasshopper that generates Ecotect geometry.

If anyone else has any other interoperable tips or hints it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

My dear friend...I had the same problem when I was doing my master thesis. The only solutions Ißve found are:

 

or you send a sendkey...to press the ok button

or you generate the geometry directly withou imports...

 

so far no other "miracle"...
