here's an interesting idea for a coding snack, for someone who knows a bit of windows and dll stuff..

the idea was inspired by a trouble using a right click context menu extension to upload an image to imageshack.

as you know there are right-click explorer context menu extensions..

what i was thinking would be a small commandline tool that would be invoked like this:

Quote
SimulateRightClick.exe "shellextension.dll" "c:\myfile.jpg"

or something like that.

i don't know how practical this is, but you get the idea - the exe would act as a wrapper around the shell extension, triggering it on a specific file.  the shell extension menu would then want to pop up of course (center of screen?).

dont even know if this is possible... maybe a windows expert like db90h will know..

jazper, your uploader tool looks awesome, and i will definitely be trying it..

my original request still stands though, and could be useful in several instances.
