Disable exit dialog

Is there a way to disable the dialog that's shown upon exiting JMP ("Closing this window will cause JMP to exit. What would you like to do?"). No other program requires a confirmation of this type, I don't see why JMP should. Clicking the X in the top right of the window (on a Windows machine) should be enough to quit JMP, no further questions required.

Hold the phone - I looked a little more, and there is a command line option that can be used to disable that exit warning:

-NoExitWarn

So if you open the properties of the shortcut from which you start JMP, and add "-NoExitWarn" to the end of the Target: property (the JMP command line), you will not get the confirmation dialog when you close the last JMP window.

Hey, gandi2223,

Sadly, I do not believe we have an option to turn off that confirmation dialog.  If you can train yourself to quit JMP by using the Ctrl+Q menu shortcut, however, you will not get that prompt.  I understand that that means you are having to teach yourself to close JMP using a non-standard mechanism.  But that's the workaround we have.  If you feel strongly about this, I would suggest contacting JMP Technical Support and making this request.

Thanks,

Eric

Where did you find this out?

I peeked at the source code (I am a JMP employee). I am currently unsure whether there is a set of command line options that we test and therefore can document, but -NoExitWarn seems like a fairly safe one.
