Re: How to execute a command?

I am not a scripter, software developer or have any training in anything like this, so take what I say with a grain of salt, I am trying to help though. (highend please chime in if you can explain this better) If you unset a variable, even if it is subsequently made global in a child script, it is s...

Re: is the a variable for internal portable folder?

I find you really strange. Can we confirm we have the same definition of "read", because yours seems to be just say that you've read the info without actually looking at it, or trying to comprehend it. https://www.google.com/search?q=define:read If you had of bothered to READ you would see these (am...

Re: How to execute a command?

Yes globals need defining in each script. I am a little unclear again what you are asking, but you are defining $MyMenu in the child script, but expecting the variable response in the main script within which you just unset the variable, so the resolution should be the same as last time but the inve...

You didn't really answer my question, but as I said in my last post if it is enabled, disable it here:

or remove this entry: .* from here

Re: How to execute a command?

If you are just asking how to make that script work as I think you intend, then this should work.

Code: Select all

  global $foo;
  $foo = "";
  $cmd = 'global $foo; $foo=1+2';  // this comes from file normally...
  load $cmd,,"s";      // how to execute what's in $cmd???
  text $foo;

Do you have the ghost filter enabled?, by default it has an entry that hides files beginning with a dot.

Re: Hover Box for Iconized Tabs

Just to piggy back a semi related issue to this topic, I find it also doesn't work if you have manually relocated a tab to a env/xy variable location, or using the portable ? syntax.

Re: Disable script commands status bar modifications

I had a query on this Don, when one of those commands that showstatus applies to is used in a function, then showstatus can't be called in the main script, it has to be called (likely repetitively) within every function call, ie. it doesn't apply globally, is that correct? An example, if required: "...

Re: Search PDF content, working in MS Windows File Explorer but no in XYplorer, reason?

Adobe is known to cause issues, their shell plugins are notorious for having bugs. Strange it doesn't freeze Explorer, but they probably test with Explorer only, and not 3rd party apps, it doesn't mean the issue is definitively within XY. As a troubleshooting step you could try disabling this: Confi...

Re: Search PDF content, working in MS Windows File Explorer but no in XYplorer, reason?

What PDF Reader are you using Adobe, Foxit, etc? It is probably an issue with their iFilter (which XY makes use of). I am using Sumatra personally, and I have no crash when searching that PDF. As a way to mitigate the issue you can change your installed PDF reader, or if you know how to manually reg...

Re: Open in new foreground tab expanded

Yes it is possible, if you changed the click action to Run Script instead, and put the effort into researching and writing a script, anyway here is a rough outline of one way to achieve it via script: $item = <CEA_ClickedItem>; $sub = quicksearch('/l=1 /dn', $item); tab('new', $item); if ($sub) { sh...

Enable both of these:

Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Use 64-bit IFilters for content search
Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows | Fall back to IFilters of the other bitness

You are missing something...
