[Wishlist] Pass current folder as parameter to an application launched with QAP

From mGuest: Launch an application with the path opened or active in the file browser as command line parameter. This is useful when you browse files and want to pass the current path to another application.

JL:
1) I open the QAP menu in an Explorer window open in C:\MyFolder
2) I choose an application favorite in the QAP menu
3) QAP launch this app and pass the active folder as a command-line parameter

  • This could be done by having a placeholder named {CurrentFolder} in the Parameters (see "Add Favorite" dialog box, "Advanced settings" tab).

    Also, would it be interesting to pass the current folder as working directory? The {CurrentFolder} could also be inserted in the "Start In" parameter (same dialog box).

      Why not expand existing placeholders for the current path/location? If it's possible to catch the file name selected when QAP is triggered.
      {CURLOC}
      {CURNAME}
      {CURDIR}
      {CUREXT}
      {CURNOEXT}
      {CURDRIVE}
      Passing current folder as working directory would be nice as well.

      • Good ideas. I'll come back to you when I start working on it. I suggest you subscribe to this post to be alerted. See link at the bottom of this page.

    Thanks for implementation of this feature. Working great for launching apps.
