Scripting in an automatic zoom level when importing a KML file?

Currently I'm running a start-up Global Mapper work space script that loads online world imagery and then importing an overlaying track-line as a KML file.  Is it possible to add a zoom command to view and center the map over the imported KML?  Or a way to bound the view to the imported KML file? And yes, I want to zoom into the KML track no matter the size of the layer compared to the base map. Thanks!

    Use the SET_VIEW command with the LAYER_BOUNDS parameter set to your KML file name.

    Thanks for the input!  That would've been perfect but it seems the layer bounding options are not available to the general IMPORT command (they are available only to a few import commands: IMPORT_OSM_TILE, IMPORT_SPATIAL_DB and IMPORT_WMS).  Thus I'm still working on a work around to this problem.   Any other ideas? Thanks again!
