How to get file name(s) that starts script exe

Recommended Posts

A.B.Ames

Hi,

Sorry to bug but I'm lost here as to where/what to look for, have search but not sure what i'm really looking for.

I'm trying to get a script that when it's not running I can select a (or more) file(s) and either drop them on the exe or r-click and send them to it.

Then when it start it loads the names of the files that where dropped/sent into a list (so i can do more). I have no clue what I'm looking for in the

help or search here. I have found code that will allow me to drop the files and have them populate a list BUT only after the script has been started.

The script will start if i drop a file on the exe now but i don't know how to obtain/capture that files name/path etc. before the script is running.

any idea's to point me in the direction...

Thx much

This is definitly not a case of too much information but to start you in the right direction

Look in the help file for $CmdLine

I don't even remember what section of the help file it is and AutoIt is not installed on this system so I can't look it up without going into another room and starting up my development system.

Perfect, Thx GEOSoft

I'm sorry for my messages I can never seem to explain things right no matter what I'm talking about.

Anyway, $CmdLine[$CmdLine[0]] does exactly what i wanted...

edit: sorry meant $Cmdline[1], etc.. posted my thx before finished reading

again, thx very much

YW but if you are dropping multiple files then you may want to take a look at

For $I = 0 To $CmdLine[0]

$File = $CmdLine[$I]

Process $File

Next
