Easy way to show placeholder values?


#1

Hello,

I was wondering if there is an easy way to see what the different placeholder values would be for a particular file?

Particulary interested in seeing the values for the following:

%_path%

%_filename_ext%
%_filename%
%_filename_rel%
%_directory%
%_folderpath%
%_folderpath_rel%

I was thinking of something along the lines of creating a tool that calls a bat file that shows these values.

TIA

  1. You may add some colums to the grid view.

Edit your columns.ini manually or use the menu View/Columns dialog.

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_path
value=%_path%
sort=%_path%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_filename_ext
value=%_filename_ext%
sort=%_filename_ext%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_filename
value=%_filename%
sort=%_filename%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_filename_rel
value=%_filename_rel%
sort=%_filename_rel%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_directory
value=%_directory%
sort=%_directory%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_folderpath
value=%_folderpath%
sort=%_folderpath%
field=

[#yourcolumnnumber]
width=100
numeric=0
name=_folderpath_rel
value=%_folderpath_rel%
sort=%_folderpath_rel%
field=

You will see, that columns %_folderpath_rel% and %_filename_rel% are empty in grid view.
These variables seem to be filled on export only.

  1. You may create an export report file like the following one.

    $filename(ExportExample.txt)Export example for paulgj 20060917
    $loop(%_folderpath%%_filename_ext%)
    _path ...........: %_path%
    _folderpath .....: %_folderpath%
    _folderpath_rel .: %_folderpath_rel%
    _directory ......: %_directory%
    _filename_ext ...: %_filename_ext%
    _filename .......: %_filename%
    _filename_rel ...: %_filename_rel%

    $loopend()
    This is the footer line - Have fun :slight_smile:
