[HOWTO] Show EXIF metadata in Lister via AnyCmd

Post by *loveprettygirls » 2018-03-29, 10:42 UTC

Hello

What I want: Show EXIF metadata for JPGs by calling EXIFtool.exe via AnyCmd in Lister.

What I get: Lister shows image or shows "SGViewer" plugin (which correctly shows the image), Lister doesn't call AnyCmd plugin.

I know my code works: when showing TXTs or other files in Lister, pressing "4", will call EXIFTool via AnyCmd on the file.

If anybody or anyone can figure this out and help me, that would be... good. I will try to pass it on.

Try this:
Under "Configuration" -> "Options..." -> "Plugins" -> "Lister plugins .(WLX)" -> "Configure": move your AnyCmd plugin up before SGViewer (Use little up-arrow in the lower left corner).

The detect string has to start with "Multimedia" so you can cycle through with [4].
E.g.:

Code: Select all

10=%COMMANDER_PATH%\Plugins\wlx\anycmd_JPG\anycmd.wlx
10_detect=MULTIMEDIA & EXT="JPG"

SUCCESS!

(PeterMad's fix (changing priority) didn't work for the record)
