    hello

    when you open an image file with Windows XP Image Viewer, and you click ENTER, it opens the next (in alphabetical order) image file that exists in the current folder

    can Emeditor do the same with txt files ?

    to open the next file in the current folder using a key shortcut (maybe not ENTER, but some else)?

    thanks

    Hi user,

    You could write a macro to view the next text file in the current folder by pressing a shortcut key.

    This is an example of the macro that opens the next .txt file in the same folder as the opened file.


    // This macro opens the next ".txt" file in the current folder.
    //
    sFolder = document.Path;
    if( sFolder != "" ){
    fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
    f = fso.GetFolder(sFolder);
    fc = new Enumerator(f.files);
    sItem = "";
    for (; !fc.atEnd(); fc.moveNext()) {
    if( fc.item().name == document.Name ) {
    for( fc.moveNext(); !fc.atEnd(); fc.moveNext()) {
    n = fc.item().name.lastIndexOf(".");
    if( n != -1 ){
    if( fc.item().name.slice( n ) == ".txt" ){
    sPath = sFolder + "" + fc.item().name;
    try {
    editor.OpenFile( sPath );
    }
    catch(e){
    }
    break;
    }
    }
    }
    break;
    }
    }
    }

    thanks and what are the hotkeys to view the next/previous txt file?

    You can assign any shortcut key from the configuration properties > Keyboard tab. You can select this macro in the My Macros category, and then assign a new key.

    does this work for the ‘previous’ txt file as well?

    No, it doesn’t work with previous text file.

    Prev-file version…


    // This macro opens the prev ".txt" file in the current folder.
    //
    sFolder = document.Path;
    if( sFolder != "" ) {
    fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
    f = fso.GetFolder(sFolder);
    fc = new Enumerator(f.files);
    sItem = "";
    for (; !fc.atEnd(); fc.moveNext()) {
    if( fc.item().name == document.Name ) {
    try {
    editor.OpenFile( sPath );
    }
    catch(e) {
    }
    break;
    }
    else {
    n = fc.item().name.lastIndexOf(".");
    if( n != -1 && fc.item().name.slice( n ) == ".txt" )
    sPath = sFolder + "" + fc.item().name;
    }
    }
    }

    that is very useful thanks
    but why it appears not well formatted? can you format it as the previous script?
    thanks
