Auto-run on startup

Hi all,


I want to create an autorun application, then i check option of  "Auto-run on startup" on Application Descriptor and it works. But how can I discern the case of auto-run and the case of user starts the application?Is there a default argument for the first case?Can i do it without create an alternaty entry point?


Thanks in advance,

"Can i do it without create an alternaty entry point?"


Not and be 100% sure.  YOu might be able to get away with testing inStartup() - see this link:



But the accepted practice is to use an alternate entry.
