[SOLVED] Detect File Save?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I need a little help if you can.

Im making a small script which sends a Refresh command, "{F5}" to my browser when I save a file in Notepad++.

I work as web developer and I need this to save my time by automating the process, so when I "Save" a .PHP file in Notepad++, the script activates the browser window and sends a Refresh command to update changes on web page.

If WinExists ("[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass;]", "") Then       

Is there any way I can detect when the file is saved? Or when I press CTRL+S?

seangriffin's FileSystemMonitor UDF will let you know when anything happens in a folder. I have successfully used it to detect a newly created/changed file in order to trigger a function within a script. :D

Give it a try and see how you get on. You know where we are if you run into problems. :oops:

haha thanks Melba23,

as always you have a one-reply-solution and kind sense of humor :oops:

I know where you are as you have helped me in numerous cases :D

I just downloaded the UDF you suggested and ran the examples.

I dont have enough time to get into the code right now but this seems to be a smart solution and I'm going to use this :rip:

I'm going to mark this question as [solved]
