Re: How to...run a cmd on opening a folder?

It wouldn't affect it everywhere, if there is no matching PFA entry then it works just as per normal, the info SammaySarkar posted is outdated if you are basing your un-tweaking on it (ie. without testing), its functionality has changed since, and as I mentioned in my previous post you just create a...

Re: How to...run a cmd on opening a folder?

Well there is a tweak: PFADefaultOpenFolders=1 You may have to setup some conditional PFA entries to make it work how you want though, also keep in mind it is only triggered from the list, not tree or breadcrumb etc. for instructions on how to tweak: https://www.xyplorer.com/faq-topic.php?id=tweak

Re: Sync folders functionality

Easier ? If you bother to look in the help file at the examples shown, they are all one line, basically sync "path1", "path2"; at a minimum, so not sure how it could be any easier.

Re: Sync folders functionality

Yes you can setup custom jobs etc via simple scripting, you can paste the following into the XY address bar for more information if you are interested:

Code: Select all

::help "idh_scripting_comref.htm#idh_sc_sync";
The scripting commands can be run from custom toolbar buttons, UDC, Catalog, address bar etc.

Re: How to make XY see custom folder icons?

I think you might have used the wrong link in your original post which confused the issue, maybe you meant to use this instead, anyway that is a non-standard windows hack, so it's not surprising that XY doesn't read those registry entries. What you want to do is possible in XY via CFI though, just m...

Re: Insert Date into File Name

Well this is the variable you'd want: <date yyyy-mm-dd> and depending on what you are doing with it scripting is probs the answer, for example maybe using rename etc commands via PFA: https://www.xyplorer.com/tour.php?page=pom which by default has an example for adding the date to the filename, or y...

Re: Duplicate with custom suffix

What you are requesting is already possible in various ways, one of those is via PFA, check it out and see what you think: https://www.xyplorer.com/tour.php?page=pom An example entry: |"Duplicate with _bak" *>::copyas "*_bak.?"; which would duplicate with the "_bak" suffix, and you are free to custo...

Re: Length for Video Files

Yes it does, if you can't figure out how to add it via the GUI you can try entering this in the address bar : setcolumns(":n-27", 8); you need a codec pack installed for it to work for all formats (it will work for common formats without though), if you don't have one installed and don't want to ins...

Re: How to set a user button to show folder content in pop-up menu?

Since you seem to keep being informed of functionalities you "aren't aware of" perhaps you should read the help file to enlighten yourself, because that is where the answers come from that are supplied to you regularly, for this particular query I suggest this topic: Scripting > Script Files for the...

Re: Variable of the drive XYplorer is run from

For anyone reading this that ever has problems with quoting/variables resolving, you may find it easier to use runq instead.

eg: runq "<xydrive>\My Folder\My Program.exe";

Re: Getting error when trying to use sync feature

You need to change the location of Pane #2, ie. have the 2 locations you want to sync open in each pane before selecting the menu item.
