Find And Run Robot / Can you view folders in FARR via an alias?
« on: May 19, 2021, 06:45 PM »
If you type a path with a trailing backslash you can view the contents of a folder without opening explorer e.g.:

Is there some way to view a folders contents the same way, but with an alias to a path. for example:

an example alias:
my_docs = "C:\users\someone\"

and typing the "my_docs" alias in FARR to reveal the contents of the folder in "C:\users\someone\" within the FARR window?

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

dunno if it's just me but mine hangs for maybe 10 seconds on SPECIALSYS_DOCS v2.226.01

disabling it seems to fix
