Posting my autoexplore here since I can't get a plugin to work

Edit: Phorum software ate some of my less than and greater than signs in the script, the below should work now though.


When you browse for the file to read line by line, you'll have to alt+tab to the file dialog box. Windows 7 doesn't include the UserAccounts.Commondialog for making a typical file dialog in vbscript so I had to use a workaround.

How to use:
First make a text file with only the commands you want to send. You have three aliases to make it work so typing:

startexplore - Opens a file dialog box to browse to a text file you want to read line by line, remember you have to alt+tab to get to the file dialog box.
pauseexplore - Pauses reading the text file
resumeexplore - Picks up where you left after pausing.


This is what you will have to do to setup the rest.
Setup a timer:
Interval: however long you want, I use two seconds
Label: readtext
script: readline


Setup three aliases:

Alias: pauseexplore
label: pauseexplore
script: pauseexplore

Alias: resumeexplore
label: resumeexplore
script: resumeexplore

Alias: startexplore
label: startexplore
script: startexplore


Copy and paste the following into a text file named script.vbs and configure your world to use that file as script, with language being vbscript.

sub readline(name)
numLine = world.getvariable ("numLine")
fileLines = world.getvariable ("fileLines")
strFilePath = world.getvariable ("strFilePath")
if numLine = fileLines Then
world.enabletimer "readtext", FALSE
world.note "Finished..."
Exit Sub
end if
Const ForReading = 1
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFilePath, ForReading)
For i = 1 to numLine
objTextFile.ReadLine
Next
strLine = objTextFile.ReadLine
world.send strLine
numLine = numLine + 1
world.setvariable "numLine", numLine
objTextFile.Close
end sub

Function ChooseFile( )
Dim objFSO, objShell, objTempFolder, strTempFileName, strFullTempFileName, objOpenFile, objTextFile, strTempTextFileName
Const TemporaryFolder = 2
Const ForReading = 1
strTempFileName = "OpenFile.hta"
strTempTextFileName = "OpenFile.txt"
Set objFSO= CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTempFolder = objFSO.GetSpecialFolder(TemporaryFolder)
strFullTempFileName=objTempFolder.Path & "\" & strTempFileName
Set objOpenFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFullTempFileName,True)
objOpenFile.writeline("<html><head><meta http-equiv=""Content-Type"" content=""text/html; charset=windows-1252"">")
objOpenFile.writeline("<title>Open File</title>")
objOpenFile.writeline("<script language=""vbscript"">")

OK, the forums stripped the space out of "space star." Don't miss the space. (n/t)

I use something similar to this - careful if you're playing a transmuter!

Slap Self Solution

joecloud December 08, 2011 05:09PM

Just use Send instead of Execute to avoid other aliases firing, it takes less script execution time too (n/t)

Mort December 09, 2011 03:47AM

Good point -- I'm just in the habit of using Execute because I usually want other aliases to fire. In this case you don't. (n/t)
