AS 2.53beta1: Automation plugin: help file

Post by th. » 08 Mar 2010, 10:08

When the Automation plugin was introduced as a standalone plugin, the script path for the current user was C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Altap\Altap Salamander\Automation\scripts (Vista/Windows7). Obviously that has changed since it became a part of AS, it is now C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Altap Salamander\Automation\scripts (changeable in the configuration). However, the help file has not been updated with respect to that change.

I think it should also be mentioned there that it is possible to use subfolders in the script directories to create submenus in the script menu.

I've just noticed that the script menu is now updated immediately after changes in the script directories. This has to be changed in the help file as well.

Most of the version 1.1 new objects are only mentioned on the "What's new" page but not described. Makes it hard to use them :(

Fixed.

Please use direct access from Help > Plugins > Automation > Reference. New objects and methods are documented there. Just links from the "what's new" page were broken.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

I'm sorry, my fault. Please use attached version of the Automation help. Replace it at C:\Program Files (x86)\Altap Salamander (beta)\help\english\automation.chm.
