More Hot Paths

Post by Eric »

I would be great, if I could define more than 10 hot paths.

Doesn't matter if I there are assigned Hot Keys, but the path should be shown in drop down 'Change Drive' Menu.

Thanks

Folks,

But unlimited hot paths is not available yet, only in the plan for "Next Altap Salamander versions", right?

Does anybody have a workaround? I have about 20 directories that I go to frequently and with Salamander 2.5 I'm limited to keeping only my top ten in the hot path.

Thanks,
Rich

You can allways use a customized user menu.

SelfMan,

I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to make a customized user menu that would allow to move to a specified directory, but couldn't figure it out. I tried searching the discussion for an example, but couldn't find one.

Could you please explain a bit more how to do this or post an example?

Thanks,
Rich

I am using this script (e.g. d:\tools\salhotmenu.vbs):

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Salamander 2.5")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
and create user menu entries like this:

Command: d:\tools\salhotmenu.vbs
Arguments: "\\Server1\Share11"
Initial directory: $(SalDir)

Execute through shell: unchecked
Show item in User Menu Bar: checked

The script does work, after a minor modification
32bit Salamander

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Altap Salamander 4.0 (x86)")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
64bit Salamander

Code: Select all

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
bFound = sh.AppActivate("Altap Salamander 4.0 (x64)")
if bfound then
	sh.SendKeys "+{F7}"
	sh.SendKeys objArgs(0) & "{ENTER}"
end if
the AppActivate must contain the proper application title.
