Description
This plugin allows you to open chosen files using the associated applications in cases where it is possible to use the internal viewer (Lister).
The main feature of this plugin is that you can open the file in any application of these modal windows Total Commander as «Find Files» and «Synchronize directories» as well as in the Overwrite dialog, which can not be done by any other means.
No less pleasing is provided feature to run associated application by means hotkey for an already opened file in the Lister.
Also plugin can work with selected files, has a flexible configuration of execute conditions, and feature to disable using the Scroll Lock key.
Examples of convenient use
• Use in modal windows.
You no longer need to run another copy of Total Commander, if the need arises, for example, open a document in Microsoft Word or play video with the handy player in «Find Files», «Synchronize directories» or Overwrite dialog. Just configure associations for convenient applications.
• Use to open files from FTP-servers and WFX-plugins.
You no longer need to pre-copy file on the local disk to view or extract the contents. Just configure associations for convenient archiver.
• Working with selected files.
You need to open a group of files in separate tabs of text editor or print them in one motion? Just select the appropriate application and correctly configure the associations and command line parameters.
• Association application with folders.
Want to open in a player the entire season of your favorite series? Make sure that your player is able to work with folders and set associations.
• Launching applications for already opened file in Lister.
You have viewed the file in Lister and realized that you need to edit it? Just assign hotkey to launch the associated application and do not forget to use it :)
• Copy searched text to clipboard.
You already have appreciated all plugin features and use it to the full in «Find Files» dialog? Then this function is for you. If you're searched for files with option «Find text» plugin will automatically copy the search text to the clipboard, and you can paste it later in the search dialog of associated application.

Lister4=1 doesn't help unfortunately, it's not possible to load plugin. So, it looks like it hasn't been fixed.

When Lister4=1 set, ModalOnly=0 set, Load bitmaps on startup is disabled:

1. FindFiles=0 has no effect: editor is loaded when pressing "4"
2. SyncDirs=0 has no effect: editor is loaded when pressing "4"
3. TCWindow=0 has no effect: editor is loaded when pressing "4"

Only QuickView=1/0 works as expected!

So, the only way to use your plugin for me is to enable it with ScrollLock when needed and to disable it if I don't want notepad to be started.

I think I can live with that, thanks. ;)

Do you need if Lister4=1 set, ModalOnly=0 set:

1. FindFiles=0: do NOT load editor when pressing "4"
2. SyncDirs=0: do NOT load editor when pressing "4"
3. TCWindow=0: do NOT load editor when pressing "4"

Good plugin, Thx. :)
One suggestion for future versions:
Would be possible add a second shortcut for launch the default program associated in the system with the file loaded in lister?

For which purpose(s) you need second shortcut?

Hi Maximus,
Well, imagine a situation for mp3 files. In my case, I have associated the mp3 files to XMPlay (default player in my system), but I have defined for mp3 in AppLoader.ini the next:

Code: Select all

mp3=C:\Archivos de programa\Audacity\audacity.exe (audio editor)
wav=C:\Archivos de programa\Audacity\audacity.exe
When I press CTRL+F12 the audio editor is launched. The idea for a second shortcut would be for example: CTRL-ALT+F12 would load the mp3 files in the default player (xmplay in my case)

The same would be for:

- Avi files -> Default association in system: MPclassic. Open with AppLoader: virtualdub
- Picture files -> Default asociation in system: Imagine/irfanview. Open with AppLoader: The Gimp
- Etc.
It is only a idea/suggestion for improve AppLoader, isn't a request ;)

If I could make a small suggestion to the documentation.

It would be helpful to actually install the appLoader.ini to the location it needs to be for operation. And early into the readme an example for something basic like .txt files, which notes to try: Ctrl+F9 and Ctrl+F12 ...

Also is there an example or other explanation for what the [TCPos] setting does?
*BLINK* TC9 Added WM_COPYDATA and WM_USER queries for scripting.
