Similar to how you can pass a log file name in on startup to have MLV start and open a log, you can also enhance this using a .properties file that contains additional commands.
Instead of starting MLV with the normal command:
Create a properties file and launch in this way:
The content of the properties file supports these command:
# provide the full path to the log file you wish to open (Required):
# Optional parameter that will instruct MLV to continue loading a file in the case
# where it is actively logging. Default is false.
# Optional to instruct MLV to go to a specific tab or view
# accepted values include:
# Optional. Will start playback when the log is loaded when true. false is default
# If log is actively logging, the cursor will play from the most recent time
# Otherwise play from beginining
