More Shortcut Properties

1 post in this topic

I'm trying to be able to get Shortcut properties into my script.

I've tried several things.

FileGetShortcut, which returns a lot but not all the items you would see by right clicking on a shortcut and selecting 'properties'

ShellExecute, with the 'properties' verb. Which I could not even get to work. Bug? Documentation?

and also just simply creating the object and using the ".InvokeVerb("P&roperties")", then using controlgettext to get the text. But with that I don't want to actually see the dialog, so I've used WinSetTrans, but even with this there's a second when you see the dialog flash up on the screen (I've also tried lowering the winwaitdelay)...

Attached is a screen capture which I have circled the information I'm talking about.

I want to be able to get this information no matter if they are regular shortcuts or advertised shortcuts.

Anyone know of a way to do this so that I don't have to actually open any dialogs??
