Explanation

This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

This macros uses the system function System.LockConsole() to lock the console. There are two reaons wy tis may come in very handy:

  • it is much quicker than the built-in menu: if you assign this macro to a button, you just need to click/press this button to lock the console
  • if you have ever fat-fingered the console: with this macro you can be sure to always use the correct unlock code

How to use it

  1. replace 1009 with your own unlock code
