[feature request] multiple run

(1/3) > >>

Hi,

since i lost my PM to josh where there was about 10 feature requests...

i'm gonna do it again  :(

here is the feature request of the day :

multiple run !!!
in my opinion, this one is a must, since it allows :

1) multiple runs (obvious  :D)
2) On screen display (mouser could add an on screen display util, so people could make FARR a little bit sexier, by adding on screen display messages)
3) Sounds ! (play a sound when launching a result, that can be fun ;))

vitalyb:
Why would you need a multirun? What's the potential uses?

mouser:
can you explain what this would do?

nitrix-ud:
:huh: ok let me elaborate... (since i and others already asked for this feature several times i thought it was pretty obvious)

the request is to be able to run multiple commands within one result

examples :
Launch my favorite sites | http://www.google.fr AND http://www.yahoo.com AND https://www.donationcoder.com

Open my favorite apps | c:\program files\app1\app1.exe AND c:\program files\app2\app2.exe AND c:\program files\app3\app3.exe

Open the calculator | c:\program files\calc\calc.exe AND c:\program files\osd.exe "Launching calculator" AND c:\program files\sounds.ahk "Launching calculator"
(osd.exe being a on-screen message system, and sounds.ahk being a script playing various sounds)

you can imagine thousands of use ...
Open my app | c:\program files\app\app.exe AND c:\program files\counter.exe
(counter.exe being used to count the number of time the app is opened)

Open app | c:\program files\app\app.exe AND C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe -search other alias
(doing something then relaunch FARR...)

it just adds many many possibilities to FARR
:D

mouser:
yeah, not too hard to add.. of course if you wanted to do it now you could just put that list of programs to launch in a .bat file and have farr launch the batch file.
