Find And Run Robot / displaying expanded user variables in aliases
« on: March 14, 2021, 10:55 PM »
So I have many aliases with user variables sandwiched in
and sometimes I want to take those aliases for use elsewhere with the user variables expanded,
the string "%uservar.folder.stuff%" isn't any use to me outside of FARR, so I'm wondering if there's some way to take an alias and expand all its FARR user variables

naturally I could go into my uservariables and copy paste etc... but this becomes cumbersome when i have aliases with 3+ user variables in them
of course I could convert my use-case to utilizing windows environment variables, which in the long term I may do

if it's not a feature then I guess consider this a feature request for the "edit group alias" window

Probably not news to most of you but took me ages to figure out, to run a cmd window without it closing itself use:
    shellexec cmd.exe /k $$1

because you're running the /k flag on cmd.exe it won't close until cmd.exe "exits" via you closing it. As opposed to running the /k on your application, which for something like ipconfig just instantly closes

Find And Run Robot / regex default value if nothing entered
« on: September 18, 2020, 07:49 PM »
for example if I have this farr alias with respective value (some stuff redacted and formatted for readability):

slicevideo "(.*)" (.*) (.*) (.*)

shellexec /k "source file"=$$1 - cut time=$$2 - duration=$$3 - output name=$$4 |
   ffmpeg.exe -i "$$1" -ss $$2 -c copy -t $$3 -vf "\ffmpeg output\$$4.mp4"

Say I wanted to sometimes omit the last value "$$4", and if I omitted it then "$$4" would go to the default value of "untitled" so i'd end up spitting out a file "untitled.mp4"

Is this possible? also for multiple trailing values

Obviously as-is it only works for the trailing $$'s

Find And Run Robot / Re: Find and Run Robot - Freeze after Launch
« on: November 22, 2016, 04:42 AM »
dunno if it's just me but mine hangs for maybe 10 seconds on SPECIALSYS_DOCS v2.226.01

disabling it seems to fix

I want to learn to make some regex to work in Farr, wondering which language I would need to look at to learn it.

I know some programming basics but nothing about regex.

Seems like speechmarks are treated differently

vlcc $$1 | "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" $$1

used to work, now i get an error dialogue

Windows cannot find '"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" example'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Removing the speechmarks fixes it, but I don't know if that's going to work for all my other aliases.

It there a way to tell FARR to push through speechmarks as though they're part of the string, as though they're just another character? Does that make sense?

Currently when tinkering with complex new alias's to test if I got it all correct I have to close the alias and options menu to test the alias, this can get cumbersome when I have to do it about 10-20 times.

A button to test launching the alias while it's open would be very time saving.

Thanks for the great software, keep it up :)

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack
« on: April 10, 2014, 06:18 AM »
I just downloaded the latest version of CBZ pack and installed following the instructions,

But i keep getting this error message when typing "fssc"

Find and Run Robot - FARRSubScript Plugin
Plugin has failed on show_fssc:message 'fso' is null or not and object name: Type error

Anyone know how to fix this?

I downloaded the latest version of FARR (in portable format so i don't have to install anything), downloaded the CZB pack and FARRSubScript from the first thread and it works without problems, if i type "fssc" i get the list of installed SubScripts.
I've tested on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 64bit both (those are the only ones available to me at the moment).

You could try to download the portable version of FARR and see if it works with that one.

I just installed a fresh windows 7 and copied over the portable version I was running on my old system, works just fine now.

Must have just been a problem with my system. No problems now, and my new SSD rocks.

Both were/are windows 7 systems.
