And yes, I always want to keep the current address list / code list.

There is the option to disable that in version 7.5.2 under general settings:

this is about loading a table, not opening a process

To do what you wish put this in your ce autorun folder:
Code:

MainForm.actOpen.OnExecute=function()
  if MainForm.OpenDialog1.execute() then
    loadTable(MainForm.OpenDialog1.FileName)
  end
end

Thanks DB, but this forces opening the existing table, does it not?

The point is, I don't ever want to be asked when I have a table open and I don't want to a load an existing table, either. (force "never merge")

I couldn't understand this.

Adding to an existing, open table.
Or to open the selected table in a separate CE window.

Which one?

This is how CE works today:
1. CE is running and you have a table loaded.
2. You open another table (or the same): File->Open.
3. CE prompts you whether you want to merge.

This is the issue: having to click no a 1000th time is becoming annoying.
I don't think anyone merges tables these days as you can copy-paste stuff from one table to another, which I believe to be a far more convenient and elegant solution.
As such, this feature should be either removed (not preferred as someone might need it), or (preferred) there should be an option that makes step 3 null and void, no questions asked, just open the selected file without saving the current one.

From what I gathered, the OP is the opposite of what I described: he does not want to merge and wants to keep the existing (as if he never clicked open). Probably he selects the wrong file accidentally? No idea.

So, there should be an option to:
[x] Do not ask to merge on open (checkbox) and
[Always merge without asking/Always open file dropping existing/Always keep existing (do not open)] (dropdown)
I believe that would serve all purposes.

The script I posted removes the prompt for merge

This seems to be an adequate solution. CE's Lua provides a function to load a table without merging so therefore we override the original load load function with the Lua function and always pass false for the merge parameter.

I think I'm misunderstanding some facts.

1) Join: Existing (open) table + selected table are merged. (Address list, lua script, etc.)

2) Change: The current (open) table is closed and the selected table is opened instead.

3) Two tables are open: The current table remains open and the selected table opens next to it in the new DT window.

There are examples for rules 2 and 3, if we can get a sample code from @DarkByte for rule 1, we can make an optional menu for rule 3.

So the rule selection remains fixed and the same as your selection until you change it.

when you open a process it asks if you wish to clear the addresslist, and if you say yes, it checks if there is a table with the new process name, and if so ask if you wish to load this

when you load a table it'll check if the address list is empty and if not, asks if you wish to merge

the merge question will never show during a process selection as the addresslist is either empty, or you choose no to the clear table request

Only for "Load File" or "loadtable";

Is there an example of code that adds the address list to the existing list (and loads the Lua script into a new tab, if applicable)?
Is it possible for us to get a sample?

It's quite incomplete in my mind.
Reading the address list of the table to be loaded, selecting all, copying and pasting into the existing list.
Likewise, copying the lua script if available, opening a new lua tab in the existing table and pasting it there, etc.
Unfortunately, I do not know the functions of many of the controls here.

If you don't think it's too unnecessary, is it possible for us to take a sample?

loadTable with merge true.

But you can always use libxml and parse the table and read out the entries and scripts by yourself
