This is the full script of the macro. See the Scripting topic for more information.
Select the scripting language used for this macro. Built-in languages include: zScript, Lua, VBScript, and JavaScript. But any other scripting language installed into the Windows Scripting Host can also be used.
Script Text / XML / Compiled Code
Selecting the Compiled Code tab will show the low-level code generated by this macro. This is for internal testing purposes and is not documented further. Selecting the XML tab will allow you to edit the raw XML data used for copy/paste and import/export.
Send to server
When checked, the text in the Script field is sent to the server directly.
Append to Command
When checked, the text in the Script field is appended to the current text in the command line.

When selected, this macro can be chained to another macro. For example, if you had a macro assigned to the F5 key with a script of "go " and then had a macro assigned to the KEY8 number-pad key with the script of "north" and the Daisy Chain option set, then you could press F5 and then KEY8 to send "go north" to the server.
