Re: Portable Openwith Menu questions

Something like this maybe, at least for some names

Code: Select all

|"Search Discogs for '<curbase>'" \;*>::regexreplace $item, "<curbase>", "[^a-zA-Z]+", " "; open("http://www.discogs.com/search?type=all&q=$item");
but my head hurts with regexes, more expert members may help better :)

Re: Portable Openwith Menu questions

Thanks again but when I click on "open with" after having selected a file, it works fine (it show "search discogs...") But if I click on "open with" after selecting a folder then "open file" show only "customize files ass.." no option to open the browser.. Sorry you're right, I wrote without testin...

Re: Portable Openwith Menu questions

Yes, it should work with folders too. The <curbase> variable in the URL is a kind of placeholder, when we execute the script, it's filled with the actual value and then browser opens the specified URL. Now that you have quick scripting enabled, the fastest way to understand how <curbase> works is to...

Re: Portable Openwith Menu questions

I think you have to enable "Quick scripting" in XY Configuration > Advanced (F9 key) Also try to replace the IMDB URL with this one to search your site http://www.discogs.com/search?type=all&q=<curbase> So that we have something like this |"Search Discogs for '<curbase>'" *>::Open("http://www.discog...

Re: SHA-1 calculation

Thanks for the tips Don, I have to experiment and hopefully improve my understanding, maybe one day I might even write a file manager :D I was thinking I didn't make very easy to test my snippet so I'll show better the links for the needed tools. hashutils http://code.kliu.org/misc/hashutils/ Hidden...

Re: SHA-1 calculation

your "run" command had some misplaced quotes when i tested it. i think it should be like this: run "$hstart $parameters """"%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe"" /c ""$sha1sum"" ""<curitem>"" | ""$clip""""", , 1; use the debug window to see if the quotes are in the right places. First of all thank you fo...

SHA-1 calculation

I wanted a one click solution to find the SHA-1 hash of a file and find a way to further use this value in a script without temporary files but only using the clipboard. My problem is that I really fight with quotes and I didn't fully grasp their use in complex situations, how and when the XY script...

Re: MetaProps

Thanks, ale. I don't need more lists or comparisons. I now need to find a way to programmatically retrieve the correct index of a particular field, e.g. of "fileversion", for the current system. Still researching... Ok :) I looked anyway side by side, just for curiosity, Vista Business SP1 italian ...

Re: MetaProps

Hello Don, I really felt to double check this... I'm looking now to a notebook with Vista Business SP1 and the list is different from the Vista list of this morning, a friend sent me that one and I think it came from Vista Home Premium SP1. Now I'm personally using this notebook to try the test appl...

Re: Potential Buyer Questions

Hello moonracer, welcome to the forum and to XYplorer, I think the behaviour of XYplorer is intuitive and predictable out of the box, it doesn't need a lot of tweaking and doesn't need experienced users, that's why it's fine for me too :) As Don explained you may close XY and the next time you'll fi...

Re: MetaProps

Oh sorry if my version was out of place. I'm comparing serendipity list with the italian list... it's strange, the entries match each other on the two lists but then around line 50 and later at least in another line there's a different entry and after that the lists keep matching but not anymore ent...

I copied and pasted the two lists into an editor called MadEdit and did a bit of minor editing, but I think any editor with a "column mode" can do this

Windows XP is a mostly empty virtual machine, Vista is not my pc, I can't test on Windows 7. Feel free to cut the list if it's too long :?

Re: Fileversion

Ok thank you a lot, I didn't happen to know <curver>, that was the key :)

I don't have many scripts at the moment and I planned to rewrite them all using the new if and while constructs.

Re: Fileversion

Hard : You can run a script once which will show all file versions of you dlls in comments column. If you need that script let me know. It would be a clever way to use comments :) I'm not interested in the actual script but may I ask how would you proceed to get file info informations? parsing a ge...
