Everything & Directory Opus

Post by Nug » Wed Jul 29, 2009 8:44 pm

I've been messing around with Search Everything and DOpus to get 'Everything' to use it as an external file manager and at the moment I'm using hstart (Hidden start).

I had a batch file going and was intending to use hstart so that I wouldn't see the cmd window flash each time. Anyway here's the code/syntax I'm using. Its quite messy...

Code: Select all

open_folder_command=$exec("C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\hstart" /NOCONSOLE ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go LASTACTIVELISTER" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go "%1" NEWTAB=findexisting")
For 'Open Path' I'm not sure how to get DOpus to highlight the folder/file selected (like what happens if you use "Explore Path"). So it needs a bit of working.

Code: Select all

open_folder_path_command=$exec("C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\hstart" /NOCONSOLE ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go LASTACTIVELISTER" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go "$parent(%1)" NEWTAB=findexisting")
I posted this on the Directory Opus forums and it was suggested to use a select command if Everything can give just the name of the file/folder selected (i.e. without the path). Is this possible? Thanks for this great program and your help =).

I have added the function namepart(filename) for the next release of "Everything".

I've been mucking around with the beta (414b) to test out the namepart(filename) command however I don't know the correct syntax for the command and I can't seem to get it to work.
This is the code I'm using at the moment

Code: Select all

open_folder_path_command=$exec("C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\hstart" /NOCONSOLE ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go LASTACTIVELISTER" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go "$parent(%1)" OPENINDEST NEWTAB=findexisting" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd SELECT namepart(filename)")
If it's just meant to be "namepart(filename)" then its probable that I'm using the Directory Opus select command wrongly.

You might have to include quotes around $namepart()

Try:

Code: Select all

open_folder_path_command=$exec("C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\hstart" /NOCONSOLE ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go LASTACTIVELISTER" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd Go "$parent(%1)" OPENINDEST NEWTAB=findexisting" ""C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe" /cmd SELECT "$namepart(filename)"")
