Default EEL and Lua docked scripts autostart and screensets integration

Hi
With EEL and Lua scripts now being able to be docked, I miss sometimes the integration with screensets or autostart the scripts when a project is loaded, or REAPER started. In the same way as a SWS extension window is integrated. Is it possible to do that in EEL/Lua scripts?

Would it be possible that when saving a screenset, it detects the docked running scripts and save them into the screenset? Next time screenset is recalled, it would launch the necessary script if it is not already running.

This reminds me that scripts run globally. Is there a way to run a script only for a specific project? For example to stop running loop of background scripts in background projects if you switch to another project tab.

Asked for this one, hope it will be heard this time
(I fully understand that Devs listen more inputs from users who are more active and contribute on the forum)

+1. Docking is already there, so this is the next logical step for GUI integration.

That would be awesome as there are already scripts I'd like to be able to keep open and docked.

thanks guys
I was expecting some kind of response from devs too since this is the pre-release forum.

also. it would be great if the docking system improves in a way that each docking window becomes a docking container. Dockers inside dockers. Right now you can only have tabs in each docker.

Weird, I was wondering how I could do this earlier today... surprised I didnt find this thread when searching.

I haven’t yet seen a way to have something start docked automatically. I did see there is an SWS that can autostart stuff when opeining a project.

Yes, but scripts windows are not docked.

this is an old thread.

yes, scripts can be docked, and started automatically. search "__startup.lua"
it depends on the script to save the docker ID and start docked or not. Most scripts should remember where are they docked.
