Directory Opus implementation, command-line arguments

Postby frfrfr » Wed Sep 07, 2016 10:11 pm

Hey,

not really good at these things, so please treat me like the noob I probably am.

I am using Directory Opus, which is basically a replacement for Windows Explorer, with some decent features.
One of them is the ability to customize toolbars, so I did.
I placed a shortcut to BRN in one of them.
I'd like to "modify" that shortcut with some sort of cmd-line argument so that it launches BRN with the currently viewed folder open.

Let's say within DOpus I'm at "D:\Music\Artist\Album1". I wanna rename all the tracks in there. Is there a way to click the shortcut and BRN starts up with that folder opened already?

DOpus allows for a bunch of modifications and arguments, if anything special is necessary for this, let me know and I'll see if the appropriate command is available.

Thanks

What have you tried?

How about %1 ?
Or "%1" ?

You might need to add a START to the BRU pathname, so something like:
Code: Select all
START   "C:\BRU\Bulk Rename Command.exe"   "%1"



Also: Bulk Rename Here
When you install Bulk Rename Utility you have the option of installing "Context" menus. If you choose this option (recommended), you will find a new Bulk Rename Here facility when you right-click a file or folder within Windows Explorer. Selecting this option will launch Bulk Rename Utility, and will automatically select the folder you right-clicked (or the parent folder, if you right-clicked a file). This provides quick access to the utility.

Hey,

thanks for the reply.

Over at their forum, someone suggested to add "{sourcepath}", which at first gave me an error message.
Updated BRN, now that works flawlessly.
I suppose {sourcepath} is somehow similar to your suggested "%1"-command?

Thanks for you effort.
