Make my file? Can I?

Recommended Posts

I've seen many AutoIT project that create its own file type.

So is there any way to make your file type use your program to read?

For example if you have a .PSD file, windows will open you Adobe Photoshop

I thought I maybe something in system32.dll but I don't know what is it :D

Thanks in advance


for(loop=0; loop<infinity; loop++) { alert('I love you'); }

What you are referring to is a file association. In reality, any file extension can be opened in any program. What you want is for your custom extension to open with your script, there are plenty of examples of this.

Oh look, I did the search for you. http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=17894

Thanks, it works, but could you explain me what is the red word stands for?

fDefineOpenAssociation("csv", "CSV Class", "Data base file splited by comma ", @SystemDir & "\SHELL32.dll,1", "notepad.exe 1%")


for(loop=0; loop<infinity; loop++) { alert('I love you'); }

It should be written:

... "notepad.exe %1")

And it is the operating system variable for passing the file of interest to the application.

Also, ""Data base file splited by comma ""

should be "Data base file split by comma "

or better still

"Data base file - comma delimited"
