Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

@joedf: Thanks for testing ! @LearningOne: I did some cherry picking in your code. Many thanks. @All: I posted the ALPHA version of my code on GitHub (download these two files: PopupFolders.ahk and PopupFolders_LANG.ahk ). This is (yet) another favorite folders popup menu. But this one will be my pr...

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

Else if WinTitle contains Open,Save,Export,Import,Upload,Select ; this is the case in some MS office dialog windows, which are not #32770 class. @LearningOne: Maybe the following approach would avoid the need to rely on dialog box titles to detect MS Office dialog boxes and would work with any loca...

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

Great! Unfortunately, I can't test on Win_8 myself either... Hopefully, someone else on the forum will be?

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

@LearningOne: have you tested this with Win_8?

If not, it would be nice if a Win_8 user could give a try to your code (replacing line 43 with "if A_OSVersion in WIN_8,WIN_7,WIN_VISTA").

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

JnLlnd, here's extracted code from Radial menu which runs Navigator. I haven't implemented Explorer_Navigate() function it Navigator codes yet. Very interesting. If I understand well, you would replace the part of this code related to Explorer (ExploreWClass,CabinetWClass) with Explorer_Navigate. B...

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

I removed the Alt-D method from the test script.

Re: 4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explor

Thank you gregster. In theory ControlSend would be the best solution but, in real life, I found it less reliable with Explorer. However, I never had problem with ControlSend in standard Dialog boxes as you did (not consistently). I also take note that Alt-D did not work with your German Windows (040...

4 options to change the current folder in Windows Explorer

Can I ask for your help? Working on a AHK project where I need to change the current folder in Windows Explorer, I found various methods to achieve this. Some of them were not working on my system. For one, I found that the language version of my Windows 7 was in cause. Namely, the Alt-D shortcut to...

Yes. Agree for small updates. But if I rewrite the whole thing with new features, I'll use my own style.

Good practice about other's code updates or re-use?

I'm new to open source and collaborative programming and I'd like to have your advice on Do and Don'ts about publishing changes or addition to other forum user's code. I believe it is better to have the OK from the original script's author before publishing fixes, changes or additions to his script....

After months of development and alpha testing (many thanks to alpha testers!), I just released the first version of CSV Buddy v0.8.0 BETA. I confident it is quite stable. But, of course, more users will help improve the app. Thanks for using the app, commenting, reporting bugs or reusing the code, a...

CSV Buddy is a freeware app written in AutoHotkey v1.1. It helps you make your CSV files ready to be imported by a variety of software. You can load files with all sort of field delimiters (comma, tad, semi-colon, etc.) and encapsulators (double/single-quotes or any other character). Convert line br...

Re: #MaxMem: How much is too much?

Yes! Just found the reply from jNizM to a similar discussion on the old forum. Exactly what I was looking for.

With this, no need to Try/Catch. I'll remove the #MaxMem restriction and test if enough RAM is available before loading a file in a variable.

Thanks!

Re: #MaxMem: How much is too much?

Good points, Lexikos. Then, I could spot in my code the commands that could make the script reach the "Out of memory" limit and use Try/Catch to return a proper error message to the user. Are the Try/Catch very processor intensive if inserted in a very critical section of a script? If yes, instead o...
