This one is a MUST (yes again !)

@mouser, could you add a standard control to pass FARR parameters so that people like me which code using scripting app like autohotkey could develop "plugins" !

i think this is really worthwhile

first thing i would do... a preview window to show the content of the selected result when using my code snippet alias
people could also develop small .ahk script to preview images, mp3s...

it is not possible to get informations from FARR using Autohotkey
i "control" many many programs using autohotkey but FARR seems to be a black box compared to other applications
we had a talk about this issue

see following thread

Hi Mouser,

i wanted to code an autohotkey script to open some kind of preview window for my "FARR code snippet manager" 

i tought i would use the status bar text to get the file names...
i tought i could also check the search box text to trigger the preview script to work only when i'm using my snippet alias...

BUT i have the impression i can't get anything... ControlGetText, etc. does not work ...
i have no idea about windows classes, controls, etc. so i may very well be out of the subjet but do you have any ideas to get some info ?

If i could code some C++, i would (not enough time to learn) try to code a plugin, but i thought i could code a tiny script with autohotkey to get the job done...

if the control you use are invisible, could you add a "standard control" with hidden texts of the search box, status bar, etc.
I'm highly speculating here, so bear with me ! 

Cheers, Nitrix
