FileDraft - display newest files in a menu

<< < (2/2)

Very Cool.
I use a Windows Explorer Plugin called FindeXer & wrote a vbs drop script for anyone who wants it.

--- ---Dim fDraft,dirName,fCount,strCommand

fDraft="C:\FileDraft\fileDraft.exe" 'Path to the FileDraft.exe
fCount="10" 'Number of files to show
'Drop script insures only one item was dropped.
'No file/folder error checking so, please just drop folders on it.
If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 And WScript.Arguments.Count > 1 Then
dirName = WScript.Arguments.Item(0)
End If
'Build the string
strCommand=fDraft&" "&Chr(34)&dirName&Chr(34)&" "&fCount

Dim objShell
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Exec strCommand

Wow great idea on showing a context menu like that. that would make an fantastic alt-tab replacement tool. I made a small ahk script before with a different solution: recent files RSS feeds from folders (see my sig)

SirSmiley> good idea ! So good i added drag n drop support to FileDraft :D So now you can drop a folder on a filedraft shortcut (or filedraft.exe) and it will show 10 most recent files. See first post for download.

Now i'm thinking that context-menu support could be nice. Something like :
right click on a folder > click "FildeDraft" in the context menu > shows 10 most recent files

I could even make a config file to specify default number of files to show.

I'll see that tomorrow :)

Sorry for the bump. I belong to way to many forums. :)

I'm not familiar with the specific registry area for the context menu but, have been playing around with Fast Explorer which also has com object for developers.

It's fairly straight forward and might be of use.
