Hello DV,

thanks for the comment in Explorer thread. You are also ;).

So my request for next version of NppExec:
What I really miss is to start NppExec scripts from other plugins like Explorer.
I have often to start some scripts with the same context but different folders
settings. What I mean is, I have a release script for my different plugins.
It is in the root of my project folder. I can start it like following:

perl script.pl ./explorer ./explorer/change.log ./temp


Explorer can be replaced with any other folder. And this is what I do to want:

Right click on the folder in Explorer. Now there are some NppExec scripts attached
to the context. Hiting one of them starts a script. But here is the difference.
This script of NppExec would be send to the calling plugin like Explorer. The
Explorer parses it and replaces only supported NppExec values, like
$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH) or maybe new ones like $(PLUGIN_FULL_CURRENT_PATH) and
sent the modified script back to the NppExec. Finally it will be executed by
NppExec.

What do you think about it.


Best Regards
Jens

Vitaliy,

Great work.

Just one annoying issue :
If NppExec v.0.2.4 is included with v5.0.1, on each Notepad++ launch time will
the console docking box be displayed even it was hidden in the previous session.

Is it a bug or intended behaviour (for me it's rather a bug) ?

Don

Don,
did you read the text which appears in the Console window? ;-) The text says:

(...)
- You can disable this Help Info in NppExec's Advanced Options.

I.e. Plugins -> NppExec -> Advanced Options... -> ShowHelp (on start) = No.
However, this information is shown specially, hoping that users will read it
and this information helps to forestall some of their questions.
Moreover, starting from NppExec ver.0.2.5 (next version, currently in development),
this option will be activated each time when version of NppExec is changed.
I.e. if you disable it in NppExec ver.0.2.4, it will be activated in ver.0.2.5;
if you disable it in ver.0.2.5, it will be activated in ver.0.2.6 (or ver.0.3.0)
and so on.

Also, there is another option which can be set in the Advanced Options:
Visible (on start) = No/Yes
The default value is No, but maybe you have set it to Yes.


!!!IMPORTANT!!!
If you want to include NppExec ver.0.2.4 in Notepad++, please apply this simple
patch before you include it:

A problem with script names which contain spaces (with solution)
(direct link to message)
http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=5081090

It's just two lines in the source file "NppExec.cpp", but it is important.
Or you can wait for NppExec ver.0.2.5, but it will be released in the end of
this month or in the beginning of the next month.

OK, you win :)
I'll implement the simpliest possible solution: no multiple consoles for each
task, just one console which will execute some external task when it is not
busy by some internal task.
Talking about your suggestion about the realization - in fact, NppExec already
contains all needed things for this. You don't even need any internal NppExec's
script to do what you want because the command NPP_EXEC can execute external
text file as a script, and parameters can be passed.
There are many thing to explain, we better discuss it in personal e-mails, or
in ICQ, or in Skype. So here is just an example how I see the plugins "dialog".

(1) In the Explorer plugin, you create and store some predefined NppExec's scripts
in Explorer's config folder. These scripts are simple plain text files (ANSI)
which contain NppExec's commands.
For example, you want to 'cd' to some directory and then open all '*.txt' files
in that directory. You create a text file which contains the following text:

// cd to directory specified by Explorer plugin
cd $(ARGV[1])
// open files specified by Explorer plugin's filter
npp_open $(ARGV[2])

Save this file as "cd_open.npes" or however you want. (npes means NPpExecScript).
Save this file in a folder which is known for the Explorer plugin.

(2) In the Explorer plugin, you create menu items (or whatever you want to implement
it) in order to call to NppExec. Now you must understand, can you enable or
disable these menu items when user wants to use them. A message NPEM_GETSTATE
must be sent to NppExec plugin. If it returns NPE_STATEREADY, you can enable
the menu items corresponding to NppExec's commands; otherwise you disable them.

(3) Here is what you need to execute your "cd_open.npes": send a message NPEM_NPPEXEC
to NppExec plugin.
The first parameter is an usual parameter of the NPP_EXEC command - i.e. a name
of existing script or a name of a file which contains a script. I.e. the first
parameter is a full path to "cd_open.npes".
The second parameter contains arguments for the NPP_EXEC command - EACH ARGUMENT
MUST BE GIVEN INSIDE "" - i.e. two arguments in our example: the first argument
is a path to 'cd' to, and the second argument is a file filter to use. Thus,
the second argument, if Explorer's current folder is "C:\Program Files\Some
Folder" and the file filter is "*.txt", will be the following: "\"C:\\Program
Files\\Some Folder\" \"*.txt\"".
Thus, when NppExec will execute "cd_open.npes", it understand $(ARGV[1]) as
"C:\\Program Files\\Some Folder" and $(ARGV[2]) as "*.txt".

Well, we better discuss it in details later, as I proposed.

Ok, so it's intentional behaviour, but not a bug.

However, the plugin will be included only if it doesn't change Notepad++ default
behaviour.

For the release 5.0.1, NppExec v0.2 RC will be included.
If this behaviour is changed in the future NppExec version, then it'll be included
in the Notepad++ future release.

Don

This is not a plugin then, it's an annoyance.

OK, I'll remove it.
But after it I'll just ignore repeating questions similar to "How can I run
a compiler in NppExec Console" or "Why NPP_EXEC does not run my .exe file"?

I like your suggestion. Implement it and I will update my CVS folder of NppExec
to get the correct header file. Please keep in mind that it should be possible
to send arguments with quotations marks like:
"C:\\" "C:\\Program Files\\"

This example shows 2 arguments - just only if SF removes some chars...

BTW: You should use my combo box classes of HexEditor to select the consoles
colors. It's easier to change them by this implementation than to add some hex
values.


Best Regards and Thanks
Jens

PS: My other request was something like a Output Window for dynamic traces or
other stuff and I still developed it for me.
