Opening a folder?

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know a way how I would go about opening a folder with auto it? Ive tried having the script run a .bat file to open it, of course, with no success

Open, as in, get info from?: FileRead("test"); returns "text in the file", (just an example, i know it has nothing to do with folders)

Or open as in displaying the contents in a window?: Run('explorer C:\folder\dir')

Edit: shortcuts can be read with: FileGetShortcut() and set with FileCreateShortcut()

I'm not exactly sure what you want.

What the Run() did is it started up the explorer.exe in your system folder(it dosnt need the location or file type suffix because of an environment var) with the argument to open. It then found out how to open what you passed to it. (It works webpages and files, too.)
