DONE: Toggle Hidden Files and Folders
« on: May 19, 2007, 05:25:41 PM »
This script toggles(shows or hides) between hidden files and folder with the press of a hotkey. The script was written with AutoHotKey.

Download Toggle Hidden here(source code included): http://www.autohotke.../Toggle%20Hidden.rar
(the hotkey in this script is set to the (WinKey + h)

AckRiTe,

Glad you posted this here.  It's a very handy tidy little utility.

Thanks!

So how do I change the hotkey, then (winkey+h is occupied)? It would be nice to see if this program actually will do something!

Here is the documentation on hotkeys for AutoHotKey - http://www.autohotke...com/docs/Hotkeys.htm

Just change the line #h:: to whatever hotkey you would like.

#x:: ===> win-key + x
!x::  ===> alt-key + x
^x:: ===> ctrl-key + x
+x::  ===>shift-key + x

These are just a few examples...

I'd love to see a button for the Explorer bar that does the toggling.

Combine it with Skrommel's Barnacle.

Combine it with Skrommel's Barnacle.

You can just add the Toggle Hidden Files & Folders script to the end of Skrommel's Barnacle script and add the following .ini file...

Code: [Select]
[Settings]
class=CabinetWClass
color=E0E0E0

[1]
tip=Toggle Hidden Files
image=C:\Windows\System32\Shell32.dll,36
leftaction=Send,#h
rightaction=Send,#h
middleaction=Send,#h

Barnacle isn't displaying the toolbar's buttons for me but thanks.

I may troubleshoot it when I get some time.
