Hi all,

Ok ...managed to get this to run from a menu item.

Firstly, added the following lines to the profile.do file

window menu append submenu "stUser" "&Name"
window menu append item "Name" "&Fname" "myprog1"

This will create a submenu fname under name in the user menu.

Secondly, 

a. created a simple ado file in the ado\personal folder to run a do file 

The ado file looks like this:

capture drop program myprog1
program define myprog1
run "C:\Stata8\a.do"
end

b. created a do file in the stata8 folder 

The do file looks like this:
 
local b=c(filename)
_getfilename `"`b'"'
local c=r(filename)
window manage maintitle `c'

This works

But, I have a feeling this is a bit longwinded.. 

Is there a better way to do it?

Thank You 
Rajesh

Hi,

I was trying to get only the filename to display on the title bar. The best
I could come up with is 

local b=c(filename)
_getfilename `"`b'"'
local c=r(filename)
window manage maintitle `c'

How can I execute this code automatically on (after?) opening a file?

As a crude option can put a menu item on the tool bar which will run this
program?

I use stata 8.2

Thank you 
Rajesh
