"Feed to Listbox" style display from a list of filepaths supplied from outside of tc?

Post by *asdfgh9 » 2019-04-12, 13:57 UTC

hi, is there some way or a workaround for how to send tc a list of filepaths via commandline (or any other way) from outside which would all open the supplied filepaths in the "listbox" the same way like when we search for files in tc and then "feed to listbox" to isolate the results?

Install a packer plugin like DiskDir Extended
http://totalcmd.net/plugring/diskdir_extended.html
https://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm


On installation assign a pseudo extension like "DDE"



Next create a plain text file with DDE-extension like:

TEST.DDE

Code: Select all

C:\Temp\TEST\
BoxPlugin\	0	2019.01.29	15:07.12
language_boxplugin-cs-CZ.xml	1477	2017.08.09	15:34.10
language_boxplugin-de-DE.xml	837	2017.08.09	15:34.10
language_boxplugin-en-US.xml	826	2017.08.09	15:34.10
ConfluencePlugin\	0	2019.01.29	15:07.34
ConfluencePlugin\SubFolder\	0	2019.01.29	15:07.34
FlickrPlugin\	0	2019.01.29	15:08.20
language_flickrplugin-pl-PL.xml	1130	2017.08.09	15:34.10
language_flickrplugin-pt-PT.xml	1217	2017.08.09	15:34.10
FlickrPlugin\New folder\	0	2019.01.29	15:08.20
Or with names only:

Code: Select all

C:\Temp\TEST\
BoxPlugin\
language_boxplugin-cs-CZ.xml
language_boxplugin-de-DE.xml
language_boxplugin-en-US.xml
ConfluencePlugin\
ConfluencePlugin\SubFolder\
FlickrPlugin\
language_flickrplugin-pl-PL.xml
language_flickrplugin-pt-PT.xml
FlickrPlugin\New folder\


Next double click on Test.DDE

TC will handle that DDE-file like a archive file (((test this with a ZIP file))) and you can browse it like a folder. (credits to Horst.Epp)


You can even use Branch view (Ctrl+B) on that to get a list like a search result.

Code: Select all

language_boxplugin-cs-CZ.xml
language_boxplugin-de-DE.xml
language_boxplugin-en-US.xml
language_flickrplugin-pl-PL.xml
language_flickrplugin-pt-PT.xml
