Shell Item question

Recommended Posts

StungStang

Hi to all, i wanna add a shell menu item. I've this code:

RegWrite("HKCR\*\shell\Test", "", 'REG_SZ', 'Test Program')
RegWrite("HKCR\*\shell\Test\Command", "", 'REG_SZ', 'TestMe.exe "%1"')

All work good if i select one file and click on "Test Program" option in the shell menu. The problem born when i want select two or more file, while i click on the "Test Program" windows open n instance of the programm.

For example, if i select 3 file then click on "Test Program" windows open 3 time the TestMe.exe . There is a way to open the application just one time and parse all file selected in a string like that:

C:First.txt;C:\Second.txt;C:\Third.txt

How i can do that?

Check out this code I created for JackDinn >> plus you'll need _ShellAll from my signature.

This is a code example

#include <Array.au3> ;Only for _ArrayDisplay
If $cmdLine[0] < 2 Then ;We need two line
MsgBox(0,"Error", "Wrong command :(")
Exit
EndIf
$cmdCommand = $cmdLine[1]
$cmdFile = $cmdLine[2]
If $cmdCommand == "selfile" Then
$aFile = StringSplit($cmdFile, ";")
If UBound($aFile) - 1 > 0 And $aFile[1] <> "" Then ;If isn't empty, continue...
  _ArrayDisplay($aFile,"Selected File") ;Display the selected File
  Exit
EndIf
Else
MsgBox(0,"Error", "Unknow command")
Exit
EndIf

If you call this exe for example:

C:TestME.exe selfile "C:first.txt;C:second.txt"

All work good an it show me the file passed into the cmd command.

Now i want to do that with an Shell item. For example i wanna select 2 or more file, press on TestME shell item and i want that explorer do a "call" like the code show above (C:TestME.exe --selfile "C:first.txt;C:second.txt").

Now the problem is...how i can pass the "selfile" parameter in the "Shell Reg". How can remove the issue that when i want select two or more file, while i click on the "Test Program" windows open n instance of the programm?

Hi and thanks for the help

Can't be done like this as Windows will naturally spawn multiple processes. The link I provided above is a workaround for this by waiting for a certain time until no files are passed, please read the thread in its entirety.

I am investigating on that. Seems that other programm that support this kind of request, like notepad++, call an own .dll in the "shell reg key". So a way to do that might exist, the problem is how to do that :bye:. If anyone can tell me some info, i'm here :oops:

Hi and thank for the support.
