LAN plugin paste file path from clipboard (ANDROID)

Post by *pntmnt1 » 2018-07-25, 15:56 UTC

Hi,

I have installed the LAN plugin on a Samsung S3 tablet and I need to pass in a URL from the clipboard. I can navigate the LAN directory manually okay. I have tried manually typing the URL and creating a custom button but neither seem to work. Can anyone shed some light on this?

You can create a button by connecting to the server and then tapping on the "+" button in the lower toolbar. It will add a button like this:
Function type: Change directory
Command: ///LAN/servername/

To go to a subdir, just append the path to the end. You can later change the path by long tapping on the button.

Hi ghisler,

Thank you very much for the reply.

Yes, I have created a button and that works for one specific directory path. What I am trying to accomplish is this:

I have multiple users with tablets (lets say 10 users). There are QR codes containing a directory path to a network share, posted on assets in the facility. The directory path will point to a sub directory based on the respective asset. e.g.

-Main Directory
-Subdirectory1
-Asset1
-Asset2
-Subdirectory2
-Asset1
-Asset2

I am trying to have the QR code reader application send the directory path to Total Commander and have Total Commander automatically open the respective directory.

Do you think this functionality is possible or can be added?

You need a way to send an intent to Total commander, with the URL set to
file://///LAN/servername
or
content://///LAN/servername
