Miami DX - Auto Online?

I have a perfectly working Miami DX installation on my A1200 with 3Com Etherlink III card.

All I want to do is automate the startup of Miami DX either through user-startup or WBStartup.

I would like to start Miami DX, go "online" and iconify the program. Has anyone made this happen and could you please share what you did? Thanks!

Go to events tab and select auto-online on startup and iconify on online.

Note that there are two events tabs: one for each interface and one for Miami globally. Auto-online has to be set for the interface IIRC.

Thank you both for your replies!

@thomas, I did what you said and this worked great! The only catch is that by simply putting MiamiDX into the wbstartup drawer, Scalos would return an error saying something about "MiamiDX has not returned yet, do you want to continue waiting?" and I would have to cancel and everything was fine. So I went this route at the end of user-startup:

run >NIL: MIAMI:MiamiDX

Now there is no more Scalos error, Miami initializes and iconifies itself. I was able to throw my ACP program to start my BBS and it initializes just as Miami finishes so now I can reboot my Amiga and my BBS will start. Beats walking the wife through all of the steps!

Thanks again!
