$CmdLine[1] is truncated at first space

6 posts in this topic

Folks,

I'm writing a prog that sets up a new item on the file context menu (right click menu). It works fine but I see that if I select a filename with a space in it, $CmdLine[1] is truncated at the 1st space in that filename. Putting " around it doesn't help as it's already truncated by the time I get it.

Is there a way around this or can I get to the whole command line so that I can parse it myself?

I understand that example code may help but it's not quite ready yet. I'll post it tomorrow morning if required.

Regards,

4Eyes

Here is an example that I use out of a .reg file

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\CMD\command]

@="cmd /k cd \"%1\""

Edit:

Better Example

.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Clip Path\command]

@="C:\\scripts\\right-click\\rc.exe \"%1\""




[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Clip Path\command]

@="C:\\scripts\\right-click\\rc.exe \"%1\" "

.au3

#NoTrayIcon



If $CmdLine[0] <> 1 Then Exit(1)

ClipPut($CmdLine[1])

Exit(0)

blakel,

Ah... thanks, but your reply has nothing to do with my problem.

Xenobiologist,

That hits the spot nicely. As usual, I DID look in the help file but didn't see that. I thought it may have been a problem with still using 3.3.0 so I've also upgraded to 3.3.6.0.

If anybody is interested I'll post the completed code tomorrow.

Thanks heaps,

4Eyes

if that is not what you needed, could you be a little more specific?

blakel,

Ah, sorry... if I simply use this "%1", instead of just %1 then I get exactly what I want. Thank you. I didn't initially understand what you had given me.
