Tools - Arguments: browse for file missing
« on: March 20, 2011, 12:19:45 AM »
Hi Alex,

i just realize i can't browse for an file as argument for an tool.

Command: cscript
Argument: D:\rive\path to\script.vbs

For this short example i can just browse for  "D:\rive\path to\script.vbs" and then add an "cscript" by hand. OK.
But for something like:
Command: D:\rive\very\long path to\app.exe
Argument: D:\rive\path to\script.ahk
it's not that nifty.

Right now i use the command browse button to browse for the argument, and then copy this by hand to the arg field.

I think an additional entry in the arg-selection-list like "Add an file as argument..."
or even an second button for the arg field would be nifty.
Ahh, i see now that the "Initial dir" field selection-list has an Browse... entry too. So maybe this is the way to implement this?


And if you do this i think it would be nifty too to surround such added filespec by quotes if they contain spaces.

Hi Stefan,

Yes, I think this can be done, but I will need to reorganize Arguments menu also, because it became too big already.
Will add this to new 1.49 beta.

Best regards,
