auto-open last page and auto-close the previes one

14 Oct 2018, 06:55

i capture a book with this diy machine Image
i have a liveview with vysor app but with the method downbelow maybe i will better view what exactly i capture . with bigger image thumbnail i cant see image details

i want an autohotkey code that open with windows viewer the last added capture page and close all the others windows viewer

lets say that i have a camera folder(Αυτός ο υπολογιστής\Redmi 5 Plus\Εσωτ. κοινόχρ. αποθ. χώρος\DCIM\Camera) from a smartphone viewable and editable in a pc (windows 10)

every time i capture a photo files number increase

lets say that i open with windows viewer the image with filename 0064.jpeg

i capture a new image with filename 0066.jpeg . i want the new image auto-open with windows viewer and auto-close the old one if windows viewer is already open.
so open 0066 close 0064 ,open 0068 and close 0066 and so on.

----now some limits. the real captured photos names are like IMG_20181012_160550(the last picture always have bigger numbers than the others).

sometimes i have to delete one or 2 page (imagine that i capture 2 images in the same book page ) so i need to keep one of them

its a folder inside smartphone so maybe there will me permission issues .

a friend of mine did this what do you suggest?

Code: Select all

#SingleInstance force

;Script to monitor a folder 
;and keep the last jpg in a folder open
;in the default image viewer

;1. Edit the folder path on the line below and save
;2. Run the script
;3. When finished, press F7 to stop and exit

folder = C:\some folder\subfolder

SetTimer, view_last_image, 500

;loop over files in alphanum sort order
Loop, Files, % folder "\*.jpg"
  file := A_LoopFilePath

if (file = image)

Run % file
image := file

F7:: exitapp
