Can I insert Parenthesis here?

6 posts in this topic

Run ("C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " &$video_file& " -close")

I want it to output to windows command line:

Run "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " "ab.avi" -close)

but I cant get the code to produce the parenthesis around the $video_file

Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " '"ab.avi"' -close)

or

Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " & Chr(34) & $video_file & Chr(34) & " -close")

or, even easier:

Run ('C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " &$video_file& " -close')

You can use single quotes in the begining and end, then, the " will stay as it is

So in conclusion it is always safer to think outside the box. :)[/quote]

Perhaps you want double quotes vice parenthesis...

Single quotes enclosing literal double quotes:

Run ('C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe "' & $video_file & '" -close')

You can also just double them up to include them literally:

Run ("C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe """ &$video_file& " ""-close")
In this example you see triple double quotes because one double quote is for enclosing the string, and then a double double quote put it literally in the string. (Obviously the previous example is cleaner...)

Excellent. I used:

Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe " & Chr(34) & $video_file & Chr(34) & " -close")

Thanks Guys

That one is good also. There are several different ways.

Personally I wouldn't have changed the Run he had in the codebox. Instead (it's obvious that he declared the file as a variable so if it were like this

$video_file = "MyFile.avi"

Just add

$video_file + Chr(34) & $video_file & Chr(34)

Then he could have passed it to the run as he did. BTW the reason I use Chr(34) is because it is far more readable then '"'
