Want to trigger action on move

I want to trigger a report action when a piece is moved.

Here is my stack

Here is my trigger when properties match expression:
{LocationName != OldLocationName}

The report Action looks like this:

Any ideas? It does not fire but I can access the Trigger Action with the keyboard command and it behaves as expected.

As a Javascript programmer I really want an onMove event to fire…

This is to log the fleet and turn before the move log entry so I can copy paste to a plot for moves.

Also is there a way to access the entry for the log that is generated on move?

pieceName moves C 2 → C 3

Ideally I would like to modify this string ^^

Hi Matt;
I think the Trigger does not fire because it needs a command to activate it. For this to work when a piece is moved you need to navigate to the Map in the Editor where the Piece is located and add a Command in the field I have circled below then use that command in either the Report Action or the Trigger depending what you are trying to do.

The Report format for movement on the Map is located just above the location I circled in the “Map Window” menu. I hope I have helped in some way.


How do I assign points here? Give a boquet of flowers? This is exactly what I was looking for. I am working on a game that asks you to plot out sometimes 200 or more moves before the game start for your fleets so I built a plotter dot and as you drag it around it annotates the log so you can just copy paste that into the fleet information box. Works a treat!

Thank you!

You’re welcome :slightly_smiling_face:
