I've created a script, which sets the project constants based on tags on a report package. Is there a way to trigger document generation from javascript (display window 'Generate Documentation') and avoid having the user press F8?

Yes, you can press F8 for him.

This is how I do it in VBScript:

Code: [Select]
dim ws
Set ws = CreateObject("wscript.shell")
ws.sendkeys "{F8}"

Not the most elegant solution, but it does the job
