Post your script or a reproducer script that works similarly that demonstrates the issue you're having.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

here is a small example

local $files = ""
if ($cmdLine[0] > 0) then
for $i = 1 to $CMDLine[0]
switch $CMDLine[$i]
case "/play", "-play", "-files"
if not ($i+1 <= $CMDLine[0]) then $files = $CMDLine[$i+1] & "|"
endSwitch
next
if not ($files = "") then
$files = stringSplit($files, "|")
if not (@error) then
$files[0] -= 1
main()
else
exit
endIf
else
main()
endIf

There's no suggestion?

You posted a script that is managing command lines, which is definitely far from a context menu.

Post your GUI script.

@nacerbaaziz I will be glad to help you but you gonna have to help me first by doing 4 simple things.

1- Put your code into Scite and use Tidy to indent your code.  It is unreadable like the way you posted yours.

2- You gonna make a small script to show us what is the exact content of the array $CMDLine you are receiving when selecting multiple files from the File Explorer (use ConsoleWrite to do it)

3- Post the results of the console here along with the code of 1- and 2-

4- Lastly but very important DO NOT call me Dear.  I don't know you.

good morning
i return back again

sir
@Nine
am sorry because i told you dear. but we are in arabia using it for respect
and about the array that i want it
so sirs , i hav making an audio player for the blind users, and i added the program into the file explorer context menu of the audio Files
in usually we are using
$CMDLine[$i]
to get the commands line Options
until here all things was good
but if the user selected multiple files here the problem
i tried to use
for $i = 1 to $CMDLine[0]
next
to get all commands Line
but i found that the windows explorer  Send each file alone to the program and multy sections of the program will opened
for that i can't find an way to get all selected files from the context menu
i do it internally by adding an button to open files
but i need the context menu, can any one guide  me to do that please

@nacerbaaziz Man I will do that easy for you. 

Follow instruction from helpers or dont get help anymore . 

 

@Nine Is a pretty good skilled coder. He asked you 4 things. If you dont do them even me wont try to go further with you. 

 

@Nine This is what i got :! 

local $files = ""
   if ($cmdLine[0] > 0) then
      for $i = 1 to $CMDLine[0]
         switch $CMDLine[$i]
            case "/play", "-play", "-files"
               if not ($i+1 <= $CMDLine[0]) then $files = $CMDLine[$i+1] & "|"
         endSwitch
      next
      if not ($files = "") then
      $files = stringSplit($files, "|")
         if not (@error) then
            $files[0] -= 1
            main()
         else
            exit
         endIf
      else
         main()
      endIf

@nacerbaaziz

This code that you posted got errors. 

 

First thing : main() function is not here ./? 

Second : Your first condition is never ending. Missing EndIf Operator. 

Third thing : As @FrancescoDiMuro said you. You ask somthuing. You show somthing else.

You can do it this way:

; Windows Explorer on XP, Vista, 7, 8
$hExplorer = WinGetHandle( "[REGEXPCLASS:^(Cabinet|Explore)WClass$]" )
If Not $hExplorer Then Exit

; Shell object
$oShell = ObjCreate( "Shell.Application" )

; Find window
For $oWindow In $oShell.Windows()
  If $oWindow.HWND() = $hExplorer Then ExitLoop
Next

; Selected items
For $oItem In $oWindow.Document.SelectedItems()
  ConsoleWrite( $oItem.Path() & @CRLF )
Next

      Hey Everyone, I haven't been here in a while and recently picked up my old project. Still an FNG!
      To the point: I want to be able to push the button and either play an mp3, open a file, or open an exe program (all with the same button). The problem is that I don't know how to code for that at "case 1"

                  Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                                 <------------------------------- This 'Run' doesn't work even by itself!
      See code below for layout. If you need more information I will attach more code or answer any questions. Any help is greatly appreciated.

      I've used PowerPro for years and it had a feature that let you turn an array into a menu.  It also let you know if it got a right click. I liked the right click feature because it doubled the menu item usage ie left/right on the same menu item.  I tried recreate that usage with a context menu.   With _ArrayToMenu you can pass menu items for 1 and 2 dimensional arrays. Note you can indicate sub-menu but using a -> at the end of the item.  Use a - to make a separater. Optionally you can pass Tooltips by passing a second array. This array must have the same dimensions as the items array even if not all the elements contain tips. The UDF returns an array with this index of row (and if submenus column), the third element is 1 if right clicked otherwise 0 and the fourth element of the array is the label of the menu item. If the user escapes without choosing an item the the first element returns a -1.  Same thing if the user clicks on another window.   @error returns 1 if there was no array passed, 2 if the second array has different dimensions than the first.   If you use the same label in two parts of your menu you will have to distinguish them.  You can do that by additionally making sure that the selection matches the index number(s).  Note that you'll have to match the index number plus label before you match just the label because Switch will use the first match it can find.  In the example below I am using a check on which column the data is in.  If it's not in the first column then it must be the other "Beef".   Beef
      Fruit
      Col2 > Beef
                  Bread   $aR = _ArrayToMenu($aM) Switch $aR[3]
      Case "Beef" and $aR[2] = 0
             Beef1()
       Case "Beef"
             Beef2()
      EndSwitch   On a technical note I attached the context menu to the window itself not a dummy control and I didn't use _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu.  Instead I launched the context menu with "send shift-F10" and waited for GuiGetMsg() to give me the selection. Right click is picked up by GUIRegisterMsg WM_RBUTTONUP and Tooltips are done with GUIRegisterMsg WM_MENUSELECT. The whole thing is done with 3 functions. 
      I won't tell you how long it took me to figure this out but I'll say that on one of my early attempts it had two windows running at once and one was just to recieve the right click an tell the other it got it.  Suffice it to say I'm no wiz at Autoit but I really appreciate the support the community offers and I hope someone finds this useful. BTW I wrote a script to produce 1d and 2d auotit array code from excel in case you want to model your menu in excel. Here is the link.
