LOADLIST command for feeding panel from file

Post by *MVV »

It would be useful sometimes to have a direct command for feeding panel with list of items from a list file. E.g. it is useful for restoring search results exported to filelist.
Currently one have to do a search in @filelist.txt and then feed results to listbox, which is too hard to use.

Support++ :D

Useful for to load files and folders found by an external script.




Currently I use DiskDirExtended -packer wcx plugin
to show a plain text file with DDE extension and format,
filled with content manually added by an external script.

Problem is a) to much explanation need to instruct users how to use that feature,
and b) no dedicated LOADLIST <path\file> command :wink: to make that work around really useful and usable on the fly.

Code: Select all

C:\Temp\TEST\BoxPlugin\
C:\Temp\TEST\ConfluencePlugin\
C:\Temp\TEST\FlickrPlugin\
C:\Temp\TEST\BoxPlugin\language_boxplugin-cs-CZ.xml	1477	2017.08.09	15:11.10
C:\Temp\TEST\BoxPlugin\language_boxplugin-de-DE.xml	1478	2018.08.09	15:12.10
C:\Temp\TEST\BoxPlugin\language_boxplugin-en-US.xml	1479	2019.08.09	15:13.10
C:\Temp\TEST\ConfluencePlugin\SubFolder\
C:\Temp\TEST\FlickrPlugin\language_flickrplugin-pl-PL.xml
C:\Temp\TEST\FlickrPlugin\language_flickrplugin-pt-PT.xml
C:\Temp\TEST\FlickrPlugin\New folder\

But this gives you just a simple list; Ctrl+Q and Ctrl+Cursor L/R are not possible - correct?

Edit:
maybe helpful - directing in the right way:

You could use the function to search in a text file, in the "Search in" field:
@c:\path\to\text_file
and then use "Feed to listbox".

TC has to search anyway to get all the file details...

Using search dialog requires too much movements, why don't just add quick and simple command that only lists items from a given filelist?

And first of all (for me) too many explanations for "unpracticed" users.

of course it is. it's straight-forward that I searched, then I got a list, so I feed it to file panel because any actual operation is started at file panel, and I even exported it for the next time... but it's really weird in the next time, I will start from paste the exported list path in search dialog...

I would be glad if this feature can make to 9.5

Hi, everybody. This request was based on my wish on Russian board.
ghisler(Author), I'm 9th. :)

There are a lot of search-script tasks that can't be done with content plugins. Files need not just be displayed on the panel (like lst<>wcx), but also work with them fully. Of course, for info-plugins I have a solution with calling the search dialog and clicks in it, but it all looks slow and dowdy.
We need the right decision. :)
