Problem with opening precedence

Post by David233 » 24 Jun 2020 19:42

Hello,

I'm having problem with precedence of a simple opening script.

Code: Select all

if not DEFINED IS_MINIMIZed set IS_MINIMIZED=1 && start "" /min "%~dpnx0" %* && exit

START "1" "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" /script="::#353; goto 'C:\'; tab('new', 'C:\Users\David\Pictures 1');"
timeout /t 15
START "2" "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" /script="::#353; goto 'F:\'; tab('new', 'F:\Pictures 2');"

exit
Despite the timeout set to 15, it still very often mixes up the 2 directories. Where Pictures 2, comes before Pictures 1. The script itself is saved inside a .bat file

Kind regards
...

? What exactly should these two commands do, what should the end result look like?

They're supposed to open two instances of XYplorer with the set directories, in a chronological/precedent manner. Where at the moment, they get mixed up instead.

Code: Select all

START "2"
for some reason, often times comes before

Code: Select all

START "1"
, despite the timeout between them

You mean that the second instance (with drive F:) is opened before the first instance (with drive C:) appears?

If that's the case, open one instance, make sure
Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | [ ] No network browsing on startup
is unchecked, save settings.

Try your script again.

If this doesn't help, open one instance again and post the result of this command (execute it from the address bar):
text get("loadtimes");

Was unchecked, but got this from the command:

Mh, sorry, 5 seconds is not long enough so that the second instance would appear before the first with a 15 seconds timeout in between...
Can't reproduce that behavior here at all.

When you extend your bat /script calls with a ; text get('loadtimes'); at the end, does the first instance (when it appears after the second)
give any hints in the loadtimes list, why it took so long to startup?

I tried testing it with just:

Code: Select all

START "1" "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" /script="::#353; text get('loadtimes'); goto 'C:\'; tab('new', 'C:\Users\David\Pictures 1');"
And got this blank XYplorer window, after the instance with the directory, appeared for a few seconds:

Got a normal window back now, after running the new script for the second time, but I can't click on the 'Copy', as though the window isn't 'really there'

Loaded in 2,331 ms...

Is it loaded from a HDD that is dying? Sorry, no other ideas here...

Doesn't seem to look that way here 🤔

But yeah, it does take a bit of time to load things sometimes, not super long, but at times maybe like 2-5 seconds.

Perhaps I should increase the timeout even more, although I kind of already did. But yeah, you'd think C:\ would just load first, and then F:\, whenever it is ready...

Not exactly what you wanted but maybe worth considering.
Why not make use of dual panes in XY and load the two paths in a pane each?

Good point/alternative, but I'm too used to running them separately, so I think I'll live with the 'inconvenience', for the time being
