Opening a file with default application...

9 posts in this topic

Like I'll have some files and a combo with those files listed.

Lets say I have an .ini, some .txt files, a .jpg..

How do I like open the .jpg with the program that user uses to open .jpgs, and the text editor he uses to open an .ini, etc..

Run only works with EXE, BAT, COM, or PIF executable files.

Thanks. :D

Run('"' & $LocationAndApplication2OpenWithEXE & '" "' & $ItemLocationAndNameToOpen & '"')

Edit:

Here's an example:

$ItemLocationAndNameToOpen = @ScriptDir & '\ExampleOpenText.txt'
FileWrite($ItemLocationAndNameToOpen, 'This is how it works')
$LocationAndApplication2OpenWithEXE = @SystemDir & '\Notepad.exe'

Run('"' & $LocationAndApplication2OpenWithEXE & '" "' & $ItemLocationAndNameToOpen & '"')
Sleep(5000)
If MsgBox(36, 'Keep Open?', 'Would you like to keep the text file open?') = 7 Then
    $OptWTMM = Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 2)
    If WinExists('ExampleOpenText') Then WinKill('ExampleOpenText')
    FileDelete($ItemLocationAndNameToOpen)
EndIf

Ignore SmOke_N he is tired.

Run(@comspec & ' /c start ' & $s_yourfile)
I thought he wanted to open it up with any, your right... don't know how I got that from default.... but mine still works :D ... just have to know what they want to open it up with (could maybe have 2 options :wacko: ).

Ok. Thanks very much.

This works.

Func showfiles($file)
    switch $file
        Case "gamma_setting.jpg"
            If not WinExists ("Gamma Setting") Then
                $picgui = GUICreate("Gamma Setting", 520, 240,-1,-1,-1,-1,$gui)
                GUICtrlCreatePic ( "gamma_setting.jpg", 8, 8, 506, 189 )
                $okbut = GUICtrlCreateButton ("  Ok  ", 250, 210)
                GUISetState()
            EndIf
        Case Else
            If $file == "ddcodes_readme.txt" Then
                GUICtrlSetData ( $GUIbox1, $GUItext)
            Else
                GUICtrlSetData ( $GUIbox1, FileRead($file, FileGetSize ( $file )) )
;~              MsgBox ( 0, "Sorry!", "These aren't working right yet."&@crlf&"But you should find these files somewhere in this folder."&@crlf&"For now I'll put the contents in the textbox here.", 10 )
            EndIf
            Run(@comspec & ' /c start ' & $file)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

It's a little wierd though, you see a command prompt window flashing before the file is open.

Let's try that other method then.. brb.
