Monitoring windows explorer events Topic is solved

Hi all, I'm trying to find if there exists a resident script that monitors windows explorer events for a file that is added to a particular folder and its sub-folders. My ultimate intention is to automate the process of OCR of the PDF files that get added in a particular folder. Thanks for any advice.

Re: append file names with the current folder names

Thanks Bobo,
The A_ScriptDir in this context returns the path of the ahk script and not the folder I am in. I am trying to find a way to extract the current folder path based on "mouse right click' event.

Re: %A_ThisMenuItem% prints &

thanks for your prompt response A_AhkUser
The purpose of using RegExReplace is to ensure that & in a mid word situation is not removed. Such as "Ahk & auto hot key"

Re: Hotkey Help - Display Active AHK Hotkeys and Hotstrings

Thanks for this script, motivated me a lot to expand my HS list. I can see on the Sample Dialog a reference to "create hotstring" by pressing Win+h on a selected text. It doesn't seem to do anything on mine, any other script I need to download to active that. It would be really helpful if such a fun...

Re: Executer

I found a way to get around this issue.
I had to change PDF library.

command := "C:\Program Files (x86)\PDF Password Remover v3.1\pdfdecrypt.exe -i ""%1"""

Now my script works perfectly.

Re: Executer

I actually found a better solution as below: I can't however figure out how to get my file name. QPDF requires an output file name which I would like to copy and concatenate with some string. Any help finding what is stored in %1% is appreciated. #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibilit...

Re: Executer

Thanks Micromegas, I'd come across FileSelectFile however using that partly defeats the purpose of my script. I have a rather complex folder hierarchy model which requires a lot of clicking to get where I want, therefore it'd paramount that I can drag and drop the file which is already selected in a...

Executer

Hi all, I'm fairly new to AHK but I am mesmerised by the immense power it has given me. I do a lot of work on PDFs from renaming them to removing their security features via third party software. I wish to develop an AHK script that does this: 1- opens a generic window via a shortcut key 2- I drag a...
